HR Manager *Exciting new role* job summary

Are you an experienced HR professional?

Are you a Schools HR Officer/Advisor ready for your next step or a current generalist HR Manager ready for a change?

You might just be who we are looking for!

Reporting into the School Business Manager, this exciting new role has been designed to provide a comprehensive HR service at Chipping Norton School. You will be the first point of contact for all HR matters, liaising with the RLT Central Team HR Business Partner, School Business Manager and SLT as necessary. As a new role you will have the autonomy to make this your own and to demonstrate your HR skills to your new team.

What skills / experience are required

The successful candidate will ideally have Schools HR experience with a successful track record in generalist HR. You will be highly organised and a strong communicator with an ability to build strong working relationships.

We can offer the opportunity to work in a friendly and supportive team, with excellent opportunities for professional and personal development. Chipping Norton School is at a very exciting time in its journey and is a thriving and successful secondary school which is part of the River Learning Trust.

The role is offered flexibly. The exact hours and working pattern can be tailored to the needs of the successful candidate. The role will be 30 hours a week either over 4 days or 5 shorter days working 41 working weeks per year (Term time + Inset days + 2 weeks closure period working including the last week of the summer closure period). 1 day a week hybrid working will also be considered. 6.65 weeks holiday is paid in salary.

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children.

The school reserves the right to consider and interview candidates ahead of the closing date if appropriate. An offer may be made to an exceptional candidate in this instance.

If you would like to have a confidential conversation with Louise Trimmer, School Business Manager about the role, prior to application, then please email ltrimmer@chippingnortonschool.org or telephone 01608 656859
