About Us

New Hope is a charity that exists to support individuals who are homeless or in vulnerable housing. Providing accommodation as well as group and one-to-one support, we seek to transform and rebuild damaged lives. Founded upon Christian values, we support those of any faith. Our accommodation can sleep up to 66 people every night across three buildings and we are fortunate enough to be able to help over 500 people each year.

We are now looking for an HR Manger to join our Head Office team, starting in January 2020.

Your Rewards

- Starting salary of £29,000 per annum

If you are an enthusiastic HR generalist or management professional, this is a fantastic opportunity to join an organisation where staff and volunteers are valued and appreciated.

Staff and volunteers are New Hope’s biggest asset in our mission to prevent homelessness and transform lives, so it is essential that they feel motivated, recognised and engaged while working as part of our organisation.

Your role will involve working with different services across the organisation – most of our sites are within walking distance, so you’ll have plenty of chances to get out of the office and get some fresh air while contributing to our success.

So, if you’re looking to play a pivotal part in ensuring that the needs and support of our entire workforce is met, we want to hear from you.

The Role

As the HR Manager, you will be responsible for managing the HR team and overseeing the volunteer function for the charity.

Managing the part-time HR and Volunteering Administrator, you will provide a high-quality HR service, including advice and guidance, best practice, employee regulations, compensation and benefits, recruitment and pensions.

- Providing HR support to Managers, including advising and coaching on people-related matters such as disciplinaries, grievance and performance
- Managing HR administration and projects
- Managing recruitment and induction processes
- Supporting performance management
- Ensuring the HR system (SAGE) is maintained and developed

- Prior experience as an HR manager or senior HR generalist

- Flexibility to work outside of normal hours (on occasion)
- Proficient IT skills

Experience of supporting volunteers would be beneficial to your application, as would any previous knowledge of processing DBS checks.

The working hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday. However, for the right candidate, we are open to considering this role on a part time basis.

Other organisations may call this role Human Resources Manager, Employee Relations Manager, Senior HR Generalist, HR and Office Manager, Charity HR Manager, Talent and HR Manager, or Recruitment Manager.

This role will close on 2nd January 2020.
