Senior HR Adviser

Deadline Date: 18th March 2022

Applications are invited for the role of Senior HR Adviser at Yarm School. This is a new full-time post, and one which will be crucial to the consolidation and development of HR policies and procedures across all phases of the School, in addition to overseeing routine transactional work and picking up additional pieces of administrative work when required, to assist the smooth-running of the office.  The successful candidate will take up post at a critical time in the development of HR in School, and will be closely involved in the implementation and maintenance of a new, state-of-the-art, school-wide electronic platform, with a high spec HR function.

The post will report directly to the School Manager, who has oversight of all HR functions, making key recommendations and working as part of a team of three (School Manager, this post and HR Assistant/PA) in a busy office which operates all year round and covers a range of responsibilities, in addition to HR.   Further relevant CPD may be available on request as part of the post-holder’s commitment to professional development. The post is expected to liaise closely with other key areas of the Support Staff team, such as Finance and Marketing, and will be a first point of contact for general HR related queries from staff.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 18th March 2022. 

Due to the anticipated volume of applications for this role, the School may seek to interview and/or appoint earlier than the stated deadlines.  We regret that no feedback can be provided, for the same reason.

Interviews and situational tasks will be held between Wednesday 23rd – Friday 25th March, and an appointment will be made as soon as possible thereafter.

Completed application forms, with covering letter, should be emailed to the HR Department (HR@yarmschool.org) as soon as possible and no later than the closing date, or posted in hard copy to:
