An exciting opportunity has arisen for a suitably experienced and committed individual to join our School as the Head of HR. Within this role you will report directly to the COO, also liaising closely with the Head and Prep School Headmaster, to ensure the implementation of an HR Strategy that supports the School strategic plan, undertake workforce planning, support and advise on employee relations issues and regularly undertake policy development.

You will also advise on a range of generalist HR areas including employment law and ER casework, restructures and redundancies, contractual terms and conditions, recruitment, reward and retention, annual appraisal procedures and performance management, and learning and development.

This position will work across both the senior (John Lyon) and prep (Quainton Hall) sections of the School.

We are seeking someone who has solid experience as an HR generalist gained at least at HR Manager level within a range of complementary sectors. With a strong results-orientated focus, you will be able to balance day to day activities with the timely delivery of key projects. The successful candidate will also possess a high level of diplomacy and problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to lead a team.

The School’s benefits include:

  • Complimentary lunch during term-time.
  • Fees remission for children of staff.
  • Use of the School’s Sports Centre (including swimming pool) at designated times.
  • Discount membership to Harrow School’s Golf Club.

Ideally the new Head of HR would be available to start at John Lyon in late June/early July 2022, although for the right candidate there will be some flexibility in this date.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and an Enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
