The University of Greenwich has a growing reputation. One of the largest universities in the capital by student numbers, we are widely recognised for the quality of our learning and teaching, research that is internationally recognised and experiences our students enjoy. We are an international student community of people from 176 countries and a leader in transnational education.
We are now seeking to recruit outstanding individuals to join our re-organised Human Resources Directorate in two new roles of HR Manager. Each role will each be responsible for the delivery of operational HR advice and services to a faculty (or faculties) or professional services directorates together with the delivery of across institutional HR-related project work.
The ideal candidates will have considerable experience in leading a HR service working in partnership with clients providing advice and coaching managers on effective people management tools and principles. You will ensure that those managers understand and comply with the University’s employment policies/procedures and employment legislation and be knowledgeable of any proposed changes in the near future. You will also manage employee relations (ER) casework effectively, recording and analysing ER issues raised and will support managers with day-to-day interaction of occupational health case management.
An important element of the four new roles will be the requirement to spend large amounts of your working week working alongside clients supporting them on a face-to-face basis whilst reporting back regularly to the Deputy Director of HR on case issues and areas raised to ensure consistency of process and a common application of HR solutions.
You will have the necessary gravitas, presence and professional experience to be able to influence managers and stakeholders across the University in their ability to be an effective partner in the provision of HR advice and support without having to keep referring back to the directorate for advice.
Ideal candidates will be outstanding communicators with the skills to persuade and engage at the highest levels internally and possibly externally to advise and brief Counsel (if necessary) and represent the University at Early Conciliation/Employment Tribunals when necessary.
You will also be required to work closely with the other teams within the directorate and with other directorates and Faculties to maximise positive exposure for the University of Greenwich. You will contribute to the efficient running of the Directorate and will support the implementation of the University’s People Strategy.
These are new, challenging roles and represent excellent opportunities for proven Human Resources professionals to join the University at a time of major change both across the University itself and with the ever increasingly challenging competitive market within the Higher Education sector.
