What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity in an organisation which nurtures and encourages the development of personal and professional excellence? Our Multi Academy Trust is growing, and as a result we are looking for a career focused, team player to join our friendly and supportive people team. Do you have strong interpersonal, administration, organisational and prioritisation skills? Are you positive, proactive, solution focused and able to respond well in a fast-paced and changing environment? Then you could be what we are looking for.

This is a new role and getting the right person with the above skills and abilities is key. The specific requirements of the role will be shaped to fit your level of experience. You could be a competent HR administrator wanting to get your CIPD qualifications and take the next step in your HR career, or perhaps you have your CIPD qualifications and experience but are looking for a new challenge. Whilst specific requirements will be tailored to your level of experience, the key areas you will be involved in are:

  • Providing a high quality, efficient and effective Trust HR Administration function, with the support of the HR Administrators and Business Managers.

  • Supporting the People Business Partner in the provision of an efficient, professional and effective HR Advisory service to first line managers and leadership teams in line with employment legislation and best practice.

  • Liaising with the finance team and providing timely and accurate information to enable effective payroll services.
