Do you have experience of delivering an efficient and high quality service to support operational and strategic objectives? Can you demonstrate effective relationship management and influencing skills? Do you want to bring your knowledge of HR best practice to one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK and join a HR team committed to delivering an ever-improving service?

Our University is renowned globally for the quality of its teaching and research, and has an ambitious vision for the future.  The HR team has a significant part to play in championing and supporting the delivery of that vision.

Reporting to the Director of Human Resources: HR Service & Organisational Change, you will lead the HR Operations team which comprises the Systems & Admin Team and the Management Information Team – approximately 25 people in total. The HR Systems & Admin Team has responsibility for administering payroll details and liaising with the payroll team (based in Finance) regarding pay runs, contract generation, and the advertising of jobs using internal and external channels; the Management Information team provides data and returns to meet internal and external reporting requirements, as well as the management of HR systems.  

This is a key role in the HR service. You will work closely with HR teams across the service, maintaining effective relationships and agreeing and monitoring service standards. You will ensure the accuracy and integrity of our data, and develop robust processes and controls to maintain integrity and ensure compliance.

We are currently reviewing our processes and practices, and moving towards underpinning more of our activity with effective use of technology.  As HR Manager (Operations) you will contribute to the development of our procedures, and the systems design, development and maintenance to support HR processes.  You will be responsible for embedding subsequent new practices across the HR Operations team.

With an Advanced (Level 7) CIPD qualification (or equivalent), you will also have experience of leading the delivery of a high quality, customer focused service in a changing environment, as well as excellent interpersonal and communication skills. You will also have excellent problem solving skills with the ability to analyse and interpret data to identify the optimal course of action, and assess the impact of changes across a broad range of systems and processes.
