Are you an effective communicator with a calm approach and the ability to work under pressure? Can you demonstrate a creative, analytical and evidence-based approach to solving business problems through a people lens?
At Family Action we transform lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation. We have been building stronger families since 1869 and today we work with more than 60,000 families in over 150 community-based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants.
Family Action is a great place to work and we have been awarded a 3 Star accreditation from Best Companies as a reflection of “world-class” levels of employee engagement. We also placed 7th best charity and 55th best large company in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ lists for 2021. In recent years we have created an organisational atmosphere that is forward-looking, entrepreneurial with a focus on quality, impact and excellence. We want talented, creative and motivated people to join us and make us even better.
We are looking for an HR Business Partner to join the team during an exciting (and busy) time. You will be involved in developing and delivering specific people projects that support our refreshed Organisational Strategy and be responsible for supporting designated areas of the organisation, building strong relationships and ensuring that local people plans align with the delivery of the strategy.
You will advise and coach managers on complex staff issues ranging from disciplinary and grievances to large-scale TUPE transfers and service restructure. You will be a valuable member of an influential HR team and help implement and drive forward the Workforce Strategy and HR policies that help shape the future of Family Action.
As this role comes with management responsibility, you will need to demonstrate management skills and a desire to develop staff further. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with considerable experience in employment law and in managing complex, employee relations work in a busy environment. You will be an excellent communicator and professionally curious, with experience of providing high-level advice and support in a solution-focused way.
We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Family Action. We know that greater diversity will lead to even greater results for families and children and strive for our workforce to be truly representative of the diverse communities we support. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants and will reimburse your travel cost if you attend an interview.
What will we offer you?
We’ll offer you flexible working hours, a generous pension scheme and leave entitlements, eye care vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and other great benefits. We have an excellent well-being offer and we will invest in your professional development with ongoing quality training and career development opportunities. You’ll join an established, supportive and high-performing team and have the opportunity to thrive in an innovative organisation that values your opinion, encourages learning and has the needs of children and families at its core.
We are forward-looking, ambitious and committed to continuous improvement. We are a people-focused, can-do organisation, which strives for excellence in all we do and operates with mutual respect. If you share these values and behaviours and have the necessary skills, then we look forward to hearing from you.
