This is an exciting opportunity to join NEAT to lead the development and delivery of an in-house HR advisory and transactional service to our multi-academy trust of five schools, which includes a teaching school, and our trading subsidiary company.
Currently operating in the east end of Newcastle, this role is key to our capacity building as the trust grows and we are joined by more schools who share our common purpose to nurture, achieve, educate and transform.
This role will focus initially on establishing an effective HR service which can meet the needs of the trust’s board of directors, executive team and headteachers and develops effective engagement with the NEAT workforce of 350 employees and trade union representatives. Therefore the ability to be “hands on” and establish core policies, systems and processes is essential, as is a successful track record of business partnering and providing professional advice across a range of employee relations casework. Previous experience of providing HR services in a public sector context, ideally including schools/academies, will be a distinct advantage.
There will also be the opportunity to contribute to designing a People Management Strategy to enable our three-year Strategic Plan to be delivered and lead key projects that will make a positive difference for our staff.
We believe that the influence and scope of this role will grow over time and we’re looking for an individual who can grow with it. Based at our Head Office in the NE6 area, you will need to be able to travel across the trust’s portfolio of academies and therefore access to your own transport is essential.
We can offer some flexibility in working hours in discussion with the successful candidate. We also provide access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, a generous annual leave entitlement and have an accrued time policy.
Please contact Suzanne Hendey, Director of HR and Governance on 0191 2284091 if you would like to discuss this opportunity informally.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. You will need to have an enhanced criminal records check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
A completed application form, criminal records declaration and equal opportunities monitoring form must be submitted by 9am on Tuesday 20 November 2018 by email to email@example.com .
Shortlisting: Wed 21 November
