There has never been a better time to join us! As an HR service we are building on our recent period of growth and HR Transformation programme and continue to invest in our HR team, to support our future vision.

Providing a high quality, progressive and inclusive employment experience is really important to us, and in this role, you will support the Senior HRBP to deliver a high quality, strategically driven HR partnership to schools and professional services. You will oversee all employee relations case work, whilst also coaching and supporting managers. In addition, you will lead on people matters covering restructures, training, and procedure development with a focus on adding value with all that you do.

We are looking for someone who thinks beyond processes and who understands the importance of the employee experience to the University's overall success. You will be Level 7 CIPD qualified and have experience of working in an HR team in a large, complex organisation. It is essential that you have demonstratable experience of dealing with complex HR issues including employee relations casework and working with stakeholders to understand their needs. You will also be comfortable and experienced in managing change initiatives and delivering training.

Together we are creating an environment in which diverse individuals can belong, develop and thrive. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion are of vital importance to the University and the HR department. We recognise that recruiting and retaining a diverse range of colleagues is key to achieving the University's strategic aim to be more diverse, equitable and inclusive.

We'd also love to bring more experience and voices from those in under- represented groups into our HR team and so actively welcome applications from people from diverse backgrounds and minoritized groups. Diverse backgrounds, characteristics and opinions are key to us in supporting inclusion and belonging within our communities where we have 75 different nationalities amongst c3,500 of us across the university and will enable us to deliver educational excellence, enterprise, research and professional service.

Loughborough University has a strong history of Staff Networks, and we see them doing a great job in empowering colleagues, building their confidence and community, and providing voice and influence across the organisation. You can read more about Staff Networks at Loughborough here https: // www.

We recognise the value of a fulfilling and balanced work and personal life which promotes wellbeing. We seek to support colleagues in achieving this balance and have family-friendly policies, flexible working arrangements and many roles can be suitable for hybrid dynamic working arrangements. This includes considering applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a high-performing HR team and positively impact on the delivery of a high quality, progressive and inclusive employment experience for all our employees. In return, we offer you a great place to work, with a generous employment package including:

  • Up to 44 days leave per year (including Bank Holidays and University Closure days).
  • Hybrid working (We typically expect people to be in the office for 60% of their time)
  • Generous pension scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • BUPA Cash Plan (100 Scheme)
  • Incremental pay structure
  • A range of childcare support initiatives and benefits including childcare vouchers; on-site university nursery (with salary sacrifice scheme); and holiday play schemes.
  • Season ticket loan scheme
  • Volunteering policy
  • LinkedIn learning
  • Fantastic range of sports facilities and preferential membership packages available
  • Closing date for applications: Monday 4 March 2024

    Interviews to be held during March 2024.
