We are an ambitious HR team who are building on the strong foundations already in place to evolve and enhance the support and leadership we provide the Academy in the people space. We are developing our first People Strategy so, alongside all the responsibilities you would expect as an HR Officer, you will also be involved in projects and activities to improve our employee experience in a tangible way.
There will be lots of opportunity to get involved in all aspects of HR including employee lifecycle activities, learning and development, HR Information Systems, payroll coordination, employee wellbeing, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I), first line employee relations advice, policy work, reward and recruitment as well as project work for the People Strategy – all from both a hands-on and administrative perspective.
You will provide effective administrative support associated with the Academy’s HR activities, working alongside another HR Officer and the wider HR Team. Your role will involve internal stakeholder interaction so you will need to be comfortable with working with people at all levels, building relationships and managing multiple demands and deadlines.
You will also be involved in driving best practices and ensuring compliance with all Academy employment procedures, documented policies and employment legislation which directly impacts the employee experience and helps deliver our People Strategy.
