This work will be delivered against the backdrop of the ongoing challenge of COVID-19, the recovery from the pandemic and the underlying financial challenges that the GM health and care system faces with recurrent expenditure levels still higher than the collective funding we all receive.

HR Advisor – 22.5 hours per week

Our partnership team, approximately 300 strong,is a blend of staff from across multiple employing organisations which makes our HR&OD service delivery an interesting and unique experience working between and across a range of employment policies and procedures.

In addition to your HR qualification, you will ideally have public sector HR experience including job evaluation, recruitment, strong Microsoft Office skills and be comfortable to support first line operational staffing queries as may be required.

Particular areas where you will need to practice your data, research and analytical skills include supporting risk assessments and their evaluation, supporting staff transfers in to the new statutory NHS ICS organisation (e.g. due diligence) as well as supporting our people plan actions and subgroups and our ongoing ‘business as usual’ activities.
