Due to recent developments, and in order to fulfil our growth plan, we are looking to appoint additional CIPD qualified HR Advisors to join our central HR team in order to provide a seamless advisory service to all academies within the Trust.
The Trust is a large multi academy trust currently comprising of 43 academies, including secondary, primary, a through school (ages 3-18), a Free School, Alternative Provision and a Pupil Referral Unit. We are set to increase the number of academies within the Trust over the coming months and the central HR team will manage this process along with continuing to support our existing academies.
You will help to support, develop and manage our most important asset – our people. The successful candidates will establish credibility and build solid, effective relationships with Principals and Senior Leaders as well as being proactive in putting forward ideas to continually improve the organisation and performance of the department. You will need to have strong knowledge and experience as a HR generalist as you will be responsible for advising and supporting Senior Managers on policy and procedure. You will be able to confidently manage a variety of casework including disciplinary, capability, sickness absence, as well as managing change within the academies. There will also be opportunity to deliver training on both a one to one basis within the academies as well as to groups from our Head Office.
A degree and C.I.P.D qualification to a minimum of Level 5, or equivalent and demonstrable experience, is essential for this role. The Trust welcomes applications from experienced and highly skilled professionals from both the education and commercial sector. For the right person, consideration will be given to part time hours and for the post to be reduced from all year round to term time only plus an additional 20 working days. If you wish to be considered for part time hours please indicate your preference on the application form.
You will be based at our Head Office in Knottingley, however the nature of the role requires regular travel to the Trust’s Academies so it essential for the successful candidate to be able to drive and have the use of a car for business use.
Delta Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check prior to appointment.
