Actual pro-rata gross salary – £18,438 – £20,380

John Taylor Multi Academy Trust (JTMAT) is seeking to appoint an exceptional Human Resource (HR) Manager who will be able to manage the Trust’s HR provision and assist in the further development of the HR service currently provided to schools. This role is integral to growing the HR function and would suit someone who has experience of developing and implementing HR policy and procedures, has excellent communication and negotiation skills and has the ability to manage and inspire teams and individuals.

This is a stand-alone position responsible to the Chief Operating Officer and will require an experienced HR professional who is comfortable to deliver a diverse range of HR responsibilities from administration through to strategic delivery. The post is offered as part-time (18.5 hrs per week) in the first instance.

The postholder will be based at the Trust Headquarters but the role will involve travel between our schools so a clean driving licence and daily access to a car is essential.

The HR Manager will share our values and ambitions, and have the vision, drive, resilience and experience to build on our success to date and provide further expertise to our Trust in this specialised area.

This will be an exciting opportunity for you if you are someone who enjoys working with a variety of people across multiple settings. The successful candidate must be able to rise to the technical challenge, but it will be equally important that they are able to communicate successfully with leadership and operational colleagues positively and supportively, enabling the best possible outcomes across JTMAT.

Closing date for applications: 12 noon 5th September 2019
