We are looking for candidates who are innovative to deliver the highest standards of advice and guidance, and look for opportunities to implement service improvements. Therefore this role is perfect for candidates who are motivated by being able to take part in, and influence, new ways of working. If you like to problem solve and work well on your own initiative this could be the right opportunity for you.

As an HR Professional within our Employee Relations team you will support staff and line managers at all stages of their career:

Provide a professional Employee Relations (ER) advice service and case management provision to Line Managers and Staff through the Employment Relations Team working within the wider HR and Wellbeing team.

Actively be an advocate for the delivery and implementation of the HR and wellbeing strategy, including role modelling values based leadership, demonstrating personal ownership and taking an active role in ensuring the HR Operating Model is embedded successfully.

It is essential that you have previous experience working within a generalist or specialist ER / HR environment. Candidates must be able to demonstrate strong influencing skills, whilst possessing the ability to present recommendations in a confident and business like manner, challenging when appropriate. Experience of working with managers to create positive business outcomes, with an ability to work to conflicting deadlines dealing with numerous tasks and areas simultaneously is required. Experience of working within a public sector organisation, and using an ER case tracking management system would be advantageous.

The successful post holder will have access to competitive employee benefits including the opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme which offers a secure and flexible way to access a pension based on career average earnings, further details of which can be found here https://lgpsmember.org/toj/thinking-joining-key.php
