Led by the Regional People Partner, the People/HR Administrator will work in collaboration with the school based teams and as part of the regional team to deliver an expert service to our schools.

The responsibilities include:

  • People administration duties across a range of People activities including data management and reporting, compliance, and general people administration
  • Recruitment and on-boarding administration, ensuring compliance with regulations and procedures, particularly regarding safer recruiting 
  • The maintenance of the Single Central Record, personnel files, and training records for your assigned schools
  • Acting as a first point of contact for people related queries, ensuring high levels of confidentiality.

The successful candidate will ideally work 28 hours a week, and we can offer hybrid working arrangements. As a flexible employer, we are happy to discuss flexible working patterns at interview.

What we are looking for

Our ideal applicant will have

  • A good awareness and understanding of people administration, to ensure compliance with regulation and procedures 
  • Excellent written and communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal, including the ability to form rapport and build good working relationships with others
  • Flexible approach and the ability to work on their own initiative 

A relevant HR qualification equivalent to Level 3 (Foundation Certificate in People Practice) would be advantageous, as would experience of working within a school environment, but neither are essential.
