You'll support teams from some of the most high-profile sporting venues in the country as well as libraries, children's centres, gyms and leisure centres.
With our diverse workforce you'll be able to experience new challenges and have the opportunity to test your skills on a regular basis. Travelling around the region, you'll give first line advice to managers on a range of areas such as absence, misconduct, capability, grievances, flexible working and other employee relations cases. With 1,500 staff across 67 different venues including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, you'll have a leading role in providing an efficient, effective and innovative HR service to the business, ensuring it's closely aligned to the overall business objectives and plans.

You'll have comprehensive current employment law knowledge and the ability to evidence previous casework that you've managed. Acting as a consultant to the business in your region, but with full support from our central HR specialists, you'll be confident advising and making recommendations in line with HR policies and procedures. Communicating GLL's vision is a significant element of this role. You'll be a visible HR figure and have a proven track record of increasing engagement levels across a business. You will also be required to manage one HR Adviser in this post; therefore previous line management experience would be highly beneficial. You'll need to be degree-level educated and have a masters in an HR (or be willing to work towards this) as well as having your CIPD level 5.
In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.
