Flexible location with meetings in Shelter London and Sheffield offices
Closing date: 31 October 2021 at 11:30pm
Interview Date: w/c 8 November 2021 (subject to change if required)
If you have up-to-date knowledge of employment law and proven experience of working at management level in HR in a geographically dispersed organization, then join Shelter as a HR Business Partner.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
About the team
Led by the Director of Strategic Enablement and four Assistant Directors, our Strategic Enablement Directorate brings together core support functions of HR Delivery, Finance, Tech & Data, Governance, Planning and Property. We also strive to be a centre of excellence - working with each other to ensure organisational objectives are clear and strategically aligned, whilst supporting the removal of any internal obstacles that emerge along the way.
About the role
As HR Business Partner, your role will involve partnering the organisation to understand business needs and advise on People initiatives to support the delivery of our business objectives. It will also involve working with other Business Partners in the wider People Directorate to deliver cultural and structural change management initiatives that have been tailored for the needs of the business. Supporting the Head of ER Business Partnering in the continued development and delivery of a wider People and Culture plan will be important too. And, when it comes to working with L&D colleagues to create, deliver and evaluate training for our people, again, we'll rely on you.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
Already an accomplished HR Business Partner, you have what it takes to quickly build positive working relationships with senior leaders, offer strategic insight and coach and challenge others when appropriate. You’re also great at enabling the successful sharing of information to diverse groups of people to help their understanding. Previous experience of partnering leadership teams to deliver organisational change is important too, as is proficiency using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and MS teams as part of your daily way of working.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave (pro rata), enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
