Job Profile Job Advert

About the role: This is a unique opportunity to carry out an interesting and varied role, supporting and leading a busy HR team across all aspects of its Public Service-wide responsibilities. The role will add value and further enhance capacity and delivery capability to a highly committed and engaged HR team, which operates within well-defined HR policy and practice and to a clearly defined business partnering model.

What you’ll do: Reporting to the Head of HR and Organisational Development, and responsible for line managing the HR Business Partners, you will have accountability for ensuring the consistent, smooth and efficient running of the HR operational function. This spans all areas of HR, including recruitment, employee relations case work, contracts, projects, pay and reward and everything required to deliver an efficient HR service for the Public Service of approximately 900 employees. We work in a friendly and positive environment, and as the manager of the business partner function, you will also work closely with other senior team members in employee relations, policy, learning and development and organisational development. You will support the Head of HR and Organisational Development in the delivery of some key projects, acting as their deputy when required and taking the lead in any complex operational or legal matters as they arise. The successful candidate will bring a strong background of managing a full HR function, will be able to add value and knowledge to the existing skillset, and will be willing to work across all aspects of HR to enhance the capacity of the team.

What you’ll bring: You’ll be an experienced HR generalist with significant demonstrable HR delivery experience, ideally in a medium- to large-sized organisation, leading an HR team of HR professionals / business partners. You’ll be up-to-date with UK employment legislation (from which St Helena employment regulations derive, with some local differences) and best practice. The ability to motivate, lead and develop other HR professionals is essential as is building credibility with other Public Service officers. You will be flexible, adaptable, resilient and able to work in a positive but demanding environment, leading on change processes as required, engaging with a wide range of stakeholders at all levels across the Public Service and Government.
