This is an interesting and challenging time for HR, as well as English Heritage, and as National HR Adviser, you will have the opportunity to play an important part in helping our employees and volunteers navigate these challenges, by supporting our amazing local HR teams.
We are made up of three territory teams that partner with the business to provide daily support and guidance to all our people, on matters including areas such as policy and employment law, recruitment and EDI and reward. Our team is busier than ever, and we have created this role to work across the wider HR team in supporting nationally on broader initiatives and employee relations issues.
This will be a fast-paced role, where you will need the ability to meet deadlines and use your consultative approach to support employees and managers across our commercial, heritage and corporate departments. Every day will bring a new challenge, so you will be naturally adaptable, as well as enjoy influencing a range of stakeholders to enable them to achieve our organisational objectives.
You will support elements of the entire life cycle for both employees and volunteers, including resourcing, performance management, absence and conduct. Picking up case work across the organisation will come with the opportunity to work with a range of people in all of our territories. Through building relationships based on trust, and providing experience based judgements, you will organise and advise on a number of initiatives across the breadth of HR.
We need someone who has experience of success as an HR generalist within environments that have differing demands and priorities; for example, from retail and commercially driven outcomes through to corporate strategic objectives. You don’t need to be CIPD qualified, what’s important is that you have the experience in, and confidence to interpret policies and make pragmatic decisions on how best to advise managers.
You will need to be methodical and well organised, with good knowledge of recruitment, HR/Recruitment systems, disciplinary/investigation and policy. This role is perfect for someone who can balance tight deadlines and conflicting priorities, and who wants a new challenge as part of a supportive and collaborative team.
We strive to be an inclusive employer and are always looking for people who reflect the diversity of the country today, to help us make it more relevant to the diversity of the people, communities and places we serve. We continually look for new ways to promote the past in a way that is inclusive to all and that celebrates the cultural diversity of England’s heritage.
From remote sites to inner city monuments, from regional teams to our Head Office, the diversity of our teams is critical to making sure our shared heritage is inclusive, exciting and accessible.
You’ll find it’s a workplace like no other – taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.
