Farringdon, Greater London
£43,000 - £48,000 per year
Contract, Full-time
Job description

Duration: Two Years Fixed-Term (extension subject to funding)

Location: London or Cardiff (with travel expected to both)

Do you have significant experience of managing organisational development and change? Do you have a proven track record of achievement in managing the Human Resources function and leading a small team? Could you develop HR strategies to support a leadership team in delivering its ambitious growth plans? Can you streamline our admin processes across the organisation to maximise resources and improve efficiency?

We are looking to recruit an experienced HR & Admin Manager to manage the HR function in a growing charity, providing expert professional advice and support to the senior leadership team and employees on all aspects of HR, including:

  • organisational culture and strategic change          
  • staff development
  • employee relations
  • recruitment
  • reward and recognition
  • people management
  • guidance and support on HR matters and employment law

A priority for this role initially will be the development of HR policies, procedures and strategies to support Elrha’s organisational change and growth from 30 to circa 50 staff members. This role will also line manage the admin team (currently two staff members) and supervise all responsibilities associated with that function.

We’re a global charity, working to find solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support work that goes on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis.

We are based in London and Cardiff but our roles have a global reach. As an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, we work closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen.

If you feel you have the skills and knowledge required for this post and want to be part of an organisation that creates positive change in the humanitarian sector, and you strongly believe you can contribute, then join us and we’ll give you every opportunity to succeed.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of vulnerable people in our work. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure. 

We recognise the positive value of diversity and promote equality and are committed to improving employment opportunities for minority groups. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates, as BAME and people with disabilities are currently under-represented throughout our work. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans, and non-binary candidates. 

The role will be appointed at the start of the salary band advertised, unless there are exceptional circumstances. This allows for incremental progression within the role and movement up the scale.

Closing date: Sunday, 21 June 2020 

Interview date: Monday, 29 June 2020

Due to the urgency of the role, we reserve the right to offer the position prior to the closing date.
