About the role

There will be 850,000 people with dementia in the UK by 2015 with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025.

Do you want to be part of a team of people who are here to help our employees feel inspired, capable and empowered to help create a world without dementia?

We need your experience, expertise, passion and commitment to help make this happen.

If you are an experienced proactive ER practitioner looking to take the next step in your career this could be the opportunity for you!

Reporting to the Employee Relations Manager, you will be part of a specialist Employee Relations Team that also includes another ER Advisor and our in house Employment Solicitor. Using an authentic business partnering approach, your role will be both advisory and strategic.

About you

You will provide expert specialist ER advice and guidance to our HR Business Partnering Team (not directly to management) on complex cases, supporting them in their delivery of a professional and value added service to the Society over a range of ER activities.

A significant part of this role will include providing expert guidance on complex change management programmes including redundancy and TUPE, both local and strategy enabling.

You will also lead on key ER projects, analysing and interpreting people data, identifying key ER themes to inform the development and improvement of ER policies, processes and ER management competencies. You will help develop and deliver specialist management learning interventions to support innovation and best practise.

You will have a proven track record of delivering specialist Employee Relations advice and support across a broad range of ER issues in a fast paced environment ensuring a balance of legal compliance and pragmatic solutions to business needs.  You will be able to demonstrate your experience of working collaboratively with colleagues and building strong working relationships, balancing multiple priorities, a strong team orientation and your ability to proactively identify opportunities, benefits and risks with all people related activity.

We will need to agree your office base. You will be expected to travel on a fairly regular (but not daily) basis. In the main this will be to London but could be anywhere in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.
