“It’s all fun and games until someone calls HR . . . . .”
Fed up with the “fun-police” stereotype?
Looking for a chance to redefine this misconception in a fun, flexible and rewarding environment
Then you might be just the person to lead our People team and build a workplace that motivates, rewards, and advances employees.
We are a non-profit organisation based in Ealing, London. Our work is centred around improving social mobility and disrupting inequality within higher education by supporting students, especially those who are statistically less likely to get to university or attain a degree, to get the best out of their University experience.
We are an award-winning and sector-leading organisation this success is down to our excellent staff who we believe are our number 1 asset.
We consistently benchmark in the top 3 for staff engagement in the third- sector and have been awarded IIP gold status. As People & Administration Manager, you will be vital to the continuation of this success by shaping our people practices, ensuring they create an environment where staff feel motivated, valued and that they belong. Some of the work you will oversee in your first 6 months in the role will be the implementation of the new People strategy, including recently updated flexible working, equal opportunities and reward and recognition policies and procedures.
In addition, you will lead a team of high-performing staff who between them co-ordinate all of the organisation’s core business functions (HR, finance, admin, compliance) and you will be the organisation’s expert advisor on employee relations, recruitment, and other HR matters.
This role would be perfect for someone looking for a chance to work in a progressive, flexible organisation with a rewarding mission aligned to their values. Not having years of experience in HR Management isn’t a barrier. If you have lots of HR expertise and knowledge, are committed to the disruption of inequality, and can put the time in to learn and develop your skills, you will fit in really well here, so we’d love to receive your application.
