Manchester is our people.
So, working in human resources in a council that is 100% focussed on our people should be right up your street.
Manchester is and always will be a city that buzzes with culture and innovation and pride – it is one of the great cities of the world, and the city council is no different – we are ambitious, proud of our heritage, focussed on the future and deeply connected to our people.
Our HR and OD teams are right at the heart of that buzz. It’s no accident that our symbol is the worker bee. Our people are hugely talented and resourceful and committed, and we are building our teams and adapting our ways of working as we go.
It is hugely important to us that the whole city council reflects the talent and diversity of Manchester, and that starts right here in HR and OD, so we particularly want to hear from talented and diverse people. Your background and qualifications are not as important to us as your ability to continue to learn and grow and get stuff done. We are about delivery.
The HR Business Partner is central to our ambitions. You will be a change enabler, developing and guiding people needs and capabilities to continually adapt and be fit for the future. This role will be key in ensuring services have the right resource, skills and capabilities to be successful.
Working with the wider HR team to develop HR practices and processes you will act as a core member of the HR and OD Service identifying and driving improvements and links between the service and the directorate.
From organisational design driving change and transformation across your directorate, to leading on development of policy that meet the needs of the organisation and to managing JCC and trade union consultations and relationships, the reach and impact of this role is challenging and diverse and a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious and delivery focused professional.
You will have a proven track record of working within a HR role delivering tangible outcomes that make a real difference to the organisation and employees.
You will have expertise across a whole range of HR and OD activity including performance management, talent management, recruitment and resourcing, employee relations, employment law, policy and organisational change.
These kinds of roles in this kind of team in such a great organisation and city don’t come up very often so what are you waiting for? Get in touch, make an application, we can’t wait to meet you and hear what you can add.
