The HR Manager will be the key advisor to Heads of Service and Assistant Directorsor to Headteachers and Governing Bodies in schools. The role is part strategic and part operational. They will manage the work of the rest of the advisers, overseeing the allocation of case work, supervising advisors and ensuring that people management targets are achieved at an operational level.
The HR Manager will work collectively with the Assistant HR Manager to manage the staff resources within their HR grouping (Social and Care Services / Corporate and Core Services) as a pool of generic staff along with being a generic group in their own right. This means that although they may specialise in understanding one department’s work, work will be allocated on a needs basis, rather than to a department. This will allow the whole groups to work on a single project for one department while advisors work on individual employee cases.
