Working together as part of the RSA Family of Academies, our exceptional schools create learning that is inspirational for all: igniting imagination and enabling creativity and curiosity which result in the highest achievement. People are valued and happy, developing the skills and networks for success and fulfilment.  

The Trust is committed to deliver on the following strategic objectives (SO) so this role will be a key part of that delivery:

Outstanding Professionals

  • Recruiting, developing, retaining and deploying the best staff and governors (SO 1.1)
  • Implementing our talent management and succession planning agenda (SO 1.1)
  • Developing workforce expertise for all (SO 1.3)
  • Employee engagement, experience and well-being (SO 1.5)

Innovative Systems Enabling Creative Schools

  • Excellence of central service provision in all aspects of HR (SO 2.4)

Exceptional Learners

  • Exceptional outcomes (SO 4.6)

In order to achieve our objectives we will be embarking on new projects to deliver and embed new business systems and processes and ways of working to improve our efficiency and to make progress towards becoming a high performing organisation. This includes a comprehensive overhaul of existing IT systems and business processes. We are also committed to our talent management strategy, ‘Let’s Talk People’.

We are seeking organisational development expertise to enhance the capability of the existing HR provision within the Trust to support existing initiatives and to help shape and deliver an ongoing programme of improvement.

The role will be based in our contemporary designed central office in the desirable Jewellery Quarter area of Newhall Street in Birmingham and involves regular travel to our current RSA Academies in Worcestershire and the Black Country, as well as any future joiners.

As part of the Central Support Team the post will work closely with HR support staff and Senior Leaders across the Trust.
