Job Details

In the age of two-click job applications, it can be hard to grab candidates’ attention – but we want you to take the time to read this ad before applying.

This is a fantastic opportunity for somebody with HR awareness who enjoys recruitment, resourcing and workforce planning. If you want a friendly, resourcing-focused role in a small, collaborative HR team then this could be ideal for you!

Please be sure to provide a covering statement when you apply – it can be short, but we’d love to know why this role caught your attention and why you’re a good match!
***Please don’t delay applying, since we will interview on a rolling basis.***

ABOUT THE ROLE: As our first in-house resourcing specialist, you'll lead on recruitment, talent management and workforce planning across our expanding, multi-site organisation. You'll also advise on managers on retention and succession planning, working with them to develop strategies to motivate and retain our staff. You’ll have the chance to really make your mark. From organising open days, attending careers fairs, creating talent pools, harmonising our job descriptions, writing advert and web copy - you'll be the engine that brings engaged, committed staff to our Charity. We can only tell you so much in a job ad, so please read the full job description and person spec before applying - you'll get a much rounder picture of the role!

You’ll be based mainly in our Hatfield offices but with regular travel to Herts, Beds & Bucks. We’re happy to support home-working for two days per week, perhaps three. You need access to your own vehicle with business insurance (usually a cheap add-on from your insurer).

You’ll work 37.5 days per week Monday to Friday. We can consider 30 hours per week (across at least four days) if you would like to work part-time.

We're open-minded about sector, so you may come from a private, public, retail, corporate etc background. What we do need is:
•    A passion for making things happen and stories of successes to prove it.
•    Evidence of solid business-partnering experience in recruitment, workforce planning and talent management (this could be a generalist HR role but we are open-minded).
•    The ability to work on lots of things at once and keep all the plates spinning!
•    Strong writing and technical skills, including proficient use of Excel, plus excellent English writing and drafting skills.
•    Data protection and basic employment law knowledge (relating to good recruitment practice, e.g. avoiding unlawful discrimination).
•    Commitment to equality, equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging in all aspects of resourcing.

Your supporting statement must show how far you meet the Person Specification (which is in the job description). You may be stronger in some areas than others - that's OK, but please let us know where your strengths and development areas lie.

We are Disability Confident Committed. We guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy. If you want to discuss any adjustments to enable you to participate in the application or selection process, please let us know.

Strictly no agencies.
