Job Details

HR Business Advisor

The starting salary is £45,075, which includes allowances totalling £2,841.

The salary is broken down as £42,232 basic salary, which will increase annually until you reach the top of the scale £50,385.  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), a brand new unit where you can make a serious impact. As an HR Business Advisor, you’ll be instrumental to our plan’s success. Help us meet our objectives so we can make London a better, safer place. 

You’ll lead local HR services to improve performance across all areas. Collaborating with management teams, you’ll identify and implement HR solutions that will help the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) work at its very best. 

Day to day, you’ll be problem solving and applying the principles of governance, compliance, resolution and escalation to the HR service. You’ll also be a crucial link between HR and various internal and external stakeholders, supporting plan delivery and championing our More Trust, Less Crime, and High Standards mission. 

Operating at the hub of the team, you’ll be a point of contact for HR-related matters. And when you’re not dealing with contacts? You’ll be overseeing the delivery of HR initiatives that elevate people performance. You’ll deputise for the Senior HR Business Advisor, an opportunity to hone your leadership skills.

Although you won’t be managing advisor directly, you’ll have a significant effect on their success: we’ll be looking to you to improve the availability and performance of the workforce within your assigned unit.

To join us, you’ll need to be a credible HR leader who has (or is studying for) a CIPD qualification (or equivalent). As such, you’ll have a firm grasp of HR fundamentals, from employment law to recruitment. With this expertise, you’ll oversee and provide assurance for key HR matters. Whatever the task, you’ll bring your excellent communication skills into play to build relationships that count. 

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.

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.
