Job Details

Oakleaf Partnership are proud to be working with a highly prestigious school on their search for a HR Manager to join their team.
In this role you will be responsible for embedding a collaborative working approach across the school alongside the Head of HR. An integral part of the role will be to provide support to line managers and staff on all HR matters including managing and advising on complex ER cases. If you want to work in an environment that encompasses an innovative approach and strives to achieve excellence across the board then this is the role for you.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

* Lead on the recruitment processes, including interviewing and safer recruitment interviewing.
* Ensure that correct action is taken, and records maintained in the processing of Disclosures through the Disclosure and Barring Service, along with all other checks required to be recorded on the SCR.
* Support the appraisal process across the site.
* Monitor sickness levels and support the management of sickness absence across the school.
* Manage the maternity and shared parental leave processes.
* Update and maintain the HRIS including running relevant reports.
* Ensure that payroll has all the information it needs to be able to pay staff correctly.
* Ensure that good HR records, electronic and manual, are maintained and processed in accordance with relevant
data protection legislation.
* Issue relevant HR paperwork including offer letters and contracts, other relevant paperwork, and file notes.
* Ensure that the school, in its practices, complies with all current employment legislation, including Safer
Recruitment requirements.
* Support the development of HR processes to increase efficiency over time.
* Develop the relationship and processes with payroll to ensure an efficient and collaborative way of working.

Experience and Qualities:

* No previous experience working in a school is required, but this should not dissuade those with such experience applying. The post would suit an individual with some or all of the following experience:
* A good understanding of, and experience in, generalist HR matters, i.e. managing complex casework, providing
high quality advice to managers, supporting and improving management practices, drafting policies and
guidance, and HR information systems.
* A good knowledge and experience in the practical application of employment law.
* Previous experience of working in a very busy environment, working to tight deadlines and managing multiple issues at any one time.
* Experience of working on HR Projects with minimal supervision.


* Membership of the school's fitness centre.
* The holiday entitlement is 33 days per annum, including statutory public holidays.
* Membership of the school's defined contribution pension scheme is available (includes life assurance). If the post
holder chooses not to join the GPP they will be automatically enrolled into the School's Auto-enrolment pension
scheme, after a three month deferment period.
* Cycle to work scheme
