In our schools, this means we work together to provide learning opportunities suitable to the varying needs of our young people working towards achieving our vision of enabling young people, regardless of their barriers, to achieve their full potential, enjoy positive life chances and make a positive contribution to their community.

We are looking to recruit a qualified and experienced HR Manager to join our professional central team, to oversee our human resources operations, ensuring they're aligned with our vision and co-operative values.

This is a brand new permanent post starting in September 2022 and is being initially offered part time and working school term time only.

Our ideal candidate will have a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience of HR practices and employee management. Great communication skills are essential as the role will involve communicating across all levels within the organisation, including the Board of Trustees, Executive Leaders, Headteachers and staff in our schools.

Experience within Schools HR is desirable, but not essential.

The role is offered at Local Government Scale 11 (Pt 38-42) at a full time equivalent salary of £42,614 - £46,662 (Pay award pending)

The role is initially offered part time - 12 hours across 3 days per week, working school term time only. The pro-rata actual salary for this role will be £10,880 - £11,608 (Pay award pending). There will be some flexibility around working hours, pattern and working location, with hybrid home and office working arrangements considered.

We expect that the role will expand with the growth of the trust, therefore there may be scope to increase working hours in the future.
