New College Durham Academies Trust (NCDAT) is seeking to appoint an exceptional, suitably experienced HR Advisor to provide a responsive and effective service to all Trust stakeholders.  

NCDAT currently comprises two secondary Academies housed in state-of-the-art facilities located in Stanley and Consett in North West Durham, where everyone matters equally. We are keen to grow the Trust and this role will be integral in our expansion plans. 

The HR Advisor role is varied and no two days are the same!  As an efficient and effective team player, you will advise senior leaders on the consistent application and interpretation of all Trust policies in line with prevailing legislative and statutory guidance. 

The successful applicant will have their own caseload in all matters involving the employee end-to-end life cycle – from establishment control, attraction and recruitment through to onboarding, development, retention and exit experience.

Day to day operational requirements will entail working with managers across all aspects of HR policy and process; including absence management, disciplinary, grievance, training and development, appraisal and performance management.

We are looking for someone with or working towards a Level 5 HR qualification (CIPD) and with relevant experience, preferably in an education or local government setting (although this is not essential).

With HR administrative support you will lead on recruitment and absence management and use data to inform a proactive approach to day to day activities.  Applicants must be confident in the use of office software packages and be able to persuade and establish credibility with staff at all levels of the Trust. 

With excellent interpersonal skills, you should have an eye for detail, coupled with an ability to produce accurate records and reports as required.  You will have the opportunity to develop in the role and play your part in ensuring the well-being of all staff within the Trust.

Candidates must possess exceptional organisational skills and be adept at prioritisation and time management to ensure tasks are co-ordinated effectively ensuring the needs of the Trust are met.

For an informal and confidential conversation about this post, please email hr@ncdat.org.uk to arrange a mutually convenient time.
