The Twyford CE Academies Trust is a growing educational organisation comprising four secondary schools in West London - Twyford CE High School (1450 students), William Perkin CE High School (entering its sixth year), Ealing Fields High School (three year groups) and - opening in September 2018 - Ada Lovelace CE High School.
A new opportunity is now available for an HR Advisor to join the Trust’s HR team. This is a busy and varied role focusing primarily on staff recruitment and related pre-employment administration, and payroll support. The new post-holder will also be involved in other HR activities including employee relations, absence management and responding to HR queries from staff. As our HR service continues to grow in line with the growth of our schools we anticipate that the new post-holder will take on more responsibility for leading HR for one or two schools. The right candidate will be able to grow and develop their responsibilities and experience as the Trust grows, and will be supported to gain a CIPD HR qualification if they do not already have this.
The new post-holder will be join a team of three people (the HR Manager and two part-time HR Assistants).
The successful candidate will be:
Approachable, calm and professional. S/he will be highly organised and able to understand and convey detailed information. Previous HR experience is desirable but not essential, however the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate successful work experience in a fast-paced office environment, and the ability to own their own work and take responsibility for specific job areas. The new post-holder must be resilient and adaptable, and will demonstrate the potential to take on a management role. S/he will not only be able to provide a good service but also able to contribute to the development of working processes as the Trust grows.
Some flexibility with regard to working hours is also essential.
The role is primarily based within the Twyford Trust Operations team at Twyford CE High School though there will be a requirement to work at other Trust schools.
