Do you think you can make a difference? If so, we would love to hear from you. We currently have a permanent part time vacancy (30 hours per week, worked over 4 days) for a HR Advisor within our demanding HR Department, offering a service to more than 7000 staff.

We are seeking a dedicated and highly experienced HR Advisor who is ready to make a real difference and contribution to our team. As a HR Advisor you will support the HR Managers within the Operational Department in the delivery of a challenging and exciting HR and Trust Agenda as the NHS faces a time of major organisational change.

This key role will provide an excellent opportunity to a HR generalist who wants to hone their employee relations knowledge and skills. You will provide an HR service to specified Divisions/Clinical Units and this is a cross-site commitment but you will also be expected to assist colleagues within HR as necessary.

You will be required to demonstrate a sound knowledge of HR policies and practices, have effective written and verbal communication skills and the ability to build effective relationships with people at all levels, as well as being a good team player whilst possessing the ability to work autonomously.

Ideally, you will be full / part CIPD qualified with substantial experience of providing generalist HR Advice, preferably gained in the public sector.
