This is a new role within a growing HR department in an established Trust. The HR Officer will deliver outstanding Human Resources provision across the Trust to ensure a high level of service that supports all staff in providing outstanding learning and progress for our students. This is a generalist HR role and will suit candidates who are keen to develop and learn, with a positive and proactive approach to work. 

Applicants must be qualified to degree level or equivalent and be willing and able to complete the Level 5 Diploma in Human Resources Management within two years of commencing post if this is not already held.  Candidates must have excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills. 

The HR Team is growing, not only in terms of staff but we are investing in our systems and software. We have recently procured an online recruitment system which will be implemented in the New Year, and we will be implementing a new HR management information system in September 2020. This is an excellent time to join the team, as we develop structures and systems to enhance our support to the Trust. 

The Cranmer Education Trust consists of the Blue Coat School which is an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ school, two primary schools – East Crompton Saint George’s and Mayfield Primary, both of which have been judged as ‘good’ by Ofsted and the Manchester Nexus School Centered Initial Teacher Training school.  This is an exciting time for the Trust as Mayfield is growing from one form to two form entry and we will be opening a new secondary school in Oldham for 1,200 pupils.  

You will be based at the prestigious Blue Coat School, but required to travel as necessary to provide support to our other schools which are all locally based. 

We offer:

• Opportunities for professional development in a growing Trust

• LGPS career average pension scheme including life insurance and dependent's pension 

• Generous sick pay scheme, increasing with length of service 

• A town centre location with motorway networks, buses and trams close by.
