Job Details

Senior HR Business Advisor

The starting salary is £57,301, which includes allowances totalling £2,841.

The salary is broken down as £54,460 basic salary, which will increase annually until you reach the top of the scale £66,356.  Plus, a location allowance of £1,841 and a non-pensionable allowance of £1,000.

Location: This role is embedded with local leadership teams, at locations within the London Metropolitan Area with an emphasis on on-site support. However there is some scope for hybrid working. We have vacancies based in Central, East, West, & South London 

More trust. Less crime. High standards – that’s our two-year mission plan. To turn it into reality, we’ve created the People Performance Improvement Team (PPIT). In this newly formed unit, you’ll have the chance to make a serious impact as a Senior HR Business Advisor. Join us – and give our team the support they need to give their best for London.  

In this newly created role, you’ll have the chance to deliver high quality, localised HR services to the Metropolitan Police Service (MSP). Working in collaboration with Senior Leadership Teams, you’ll identify and recommend HR solutions to improve operational performance, while guiding Operational Commands Units (OCUs) on areas such as attendance, performance, grievance management and employment tribunals.

You’ll ensure that your plans support our mission and that the customer is at the heart of your work. To help you achieve your aims, you’ll have central HR and senior and third-party stakeholders on hand. With this support, you’ll drive people performance across the OCUs, resolving challenges and making a difference to our workforce. 

To join us, you’ll need significant experience as an HR Practitioner and a record of leading change. It’s vital that you understand HR practices, policies, and compliance requirements of diversity, equality, health and safety and other HR-related legislation if you want to make your mark. We’re also looking for knowledge of the unique challenges and dynamics that come with a police service environment. The ability to guide and make informed decisions in complex HR situations will be essential. 

Above all, you must be capable of guiding teams and individuals with your strong communication skills. To excel, you’ll need to encourage a positive work environment, promote professional growth, and manage resources adroitly.

Why join us? Besides the rewarding nature of the job itself, a competitive salary and a Civil Service pension, you'll benefit from excellent career and professional development.

The Metropolitan Police Service is famed around the world and has a unique place in the history of policing.
Our headquarters at New Scotland Yard - and its iconic revolving sign - has provided the backdrop to some of the most high profile and complex law enforcement investigations the world has ever seen.
Founded by Sir Robert Peel in 1829, the original establishment of 1,000 officers policed a seven-mile radius from Charing Cross and a population of less than 2 million.
Today, The Met employs 32,000 officers together with specialist support staff and more than 2,500 volunteer police officers in the Metropolitan Special Constabulary.
As well as policing London’s 620 square miles and 8.9million population, The Met has national responsibility for a variety of specialist policing units and hosts the UK’s Counter Terrorism Policing HQ.
The Met is one of the largest employers in London and with a broad range of roles, from neighbourhoods to firearms. We’re recruiting people who want to make a difference, to help people and begin a career in a brilliant organisation, performing an exciting and extremely rewarding role.
Today, now more than ever, is the time to join the Met.
