The Tapscott Learning Trust are looking to recruit an HR Manager, to start September 2018

The Tapscott Learning Trust is passionate about raising aspirations and providing opportunities to all students to achieve their potential. We are seeking a CIPD qualified, experienced professional who is highly motivated, to be our new HR Manager.

You will work in partnership with senior leaders to deliver a compliant, professional HR business service for the TTLT and our schools, underpinning the Trust’s educational aims and development plans.

As a visible role model and champion of the Trust’s culture and values you will provide sound and creative professional advice to CEO/Head Teachers and SLT’s on all areas relating to Human Resources and be instrumental in ensuring that HR policies, programmes and practices are in place to deliver our HR strategy.

This is a diverse role in which you will be required to visit all schools in the Trust, currently all based in Newham, on an ad hoc basis, working to support them across a wide range of areas, from safer recruitment, performance, payroll and Employee Relations.

This is an exceptional opportunity to make your mark within a growing Academy Trust and grow your own team. The successful candidate will be CIPD qualified, with a good knowledge and understanding of HR policy and practices ideally in an educational environment. Strong experience in leading an HR team and managing change is essential, with the natural gravitas to influence at all levels, from Trustees of the Board through to teaching & support staff.

This is an all year round role but consideration will be given to flexible working.

The Trust is committed to and champion equality and diversity in all aspects of employment with the Tapscott Learning Trust. All employees are expected to understand and promote equality and diversity in the course of their work.
