Human Resources Advisor (Band 5) - HR - Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust - #49192
Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust
This is an exciting time to join our Trust as we are now working with Hull University Teaching Hospitals as part of a newly formed NHS Group, the 12th largest acute and community provider in the NHS. The HR Teams at both Trusts are in the process of coming together to provide a Group HR service, as such the job description may be subject to minor changes.
Under the guidance of senior HR colleagues, the successful candidate will be a dedicated point of contact for HR related matters, supporting staff and managers working in Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Goole, and Hull.
You will have the option to work a hybrid working pattern, incorporating some home working, as well as site-based working (at least 60%). Your base will either be Hull, Scunthorpe, or Grimsby, to be confirmed as part of the offer of employment, and some cross-site travel will be required.
You will provide guidance and advice to staff and managers across the Care Group/Directorate on a range of issues, ensuring consistent application of employment law and striving for best practice. You will also take a lead role in achieving and maintaining the Group’s key workforce performance indicators (i.e., attendance, retention, personal development reviews, and mandatory training) across all specialties.
No two days will be the same as you prioritise and manage a case load of employee relations issues and ensure policy compliance, consistency, and the provision of advice to managers regarding all aspects of employment policy and procedure including any associated post-employment issues.
You will contribute to the successful implementation of prioritised People Plan interventions and solutions and support organisational redesign and change interventions. You will also provide a key link between the HR Advisory Service, Care Group Business Partners, and centralised HR functions (e.g., Recruitment, Medical Staffing).
If you have operational HR experience covering a range of employee relations issues, we would love to hear from you. The successful candidate will be an Associate CIPD member and will be educated to degree level in a HR related field or hold an intermediate level 5 CIPD, with the relevant experience (or overall equivalent level of experience).
