- Full Time
Has your substantive generalist HR experience been gained in a large, complex organisation in a business partnering context that included implementing organisational change, undertaking case work and managing complex processes? Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that’s open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join the University of East London as a HR Business Partner.
It’s a particularly exciting time here at the University as, under our ambitious 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, we’re committed to providing students with the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world, including increasing the diversity of the talent pipeline, particularly for Industry 4.0 jobs. Our goal in Human Resources is to support our people to deliver that strategy. However, we can only achieve that if we have an engaged and diverse workforce with the skills, commitment and leadership it takes to succeed.
Right now, we’re looking for an accomplished HR professional to join our team and help us move ever closer to achieving our goals. Your challenge? To partner designated School and Service areas to ensure they deliver on their strategic and operational business plans and take responsibility for a varied portfolio of HR projects. Along the way, you’ll need to build strong and lasting relationships with key partners, including senior management, line managers and local trade unions alike. Providing expert advice, lead on organisational change projects, helping to develop and design business focused solutions to people matters and advising on employment-related issues – all are aspects of a high profile role that will also see you line manage one or more HR Advisers.
As well as holding CIPD membership, you have sound working knowledge of UK employment law and current HR trends and a good understanding of equality and diversity issues in employment. Experience gained in the Higher Education or Further Education sectors would be useful too. More important though is a strong commitment to providing a high-quality HR Service, plus experience of staff management, including agreeing clear objectives, planning, prioritising and organising a team’s resources and delegating tasks effectively.
Comfortable working as part of a team, you’re great at building sustainable working relationships with key stakeholders, including senior managers and trade union representatives. What’s more, you have the resilience to remain calm and professional under pressure and a flair for using your initiative and creativity to resolve complex and sometimes unpredictable problems. Experience of utilising an HR database and using Microsoft Office applications including Excel, Outlook, Word and Power Point is also required, together with the ability to interpret and appropriately act upon management information.
So, if you have what we are looking for and are keen to learn and further develop, get in touch.
At the University of East London, we aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a working environment at the heart of a dynamic region with excellent transport links. You can look forward to a warm, sincere welcome, genuine camaraderie and mobility in an institution led with passion, visibility and purpose. Your impact, resilience and sense of collegiality will directly contribute to the University’s future and those of the students whose lives you will touch and change forever. We also offer a great range of benefits including pension, family friendly policies and an on-site nursery and gym at our Docklands Campus.
Closing date: Thursday 24th June 2021.
