HR Advisor

The charity aims to provide Deaf people with the same access to healthcare and health information as people with hearing. Deaf people are known to have poorer health and the charity wants to change that. They are also a Disability Confident employer with the associated accreditation.

The Office is located in Balham, close to the Northern line tube station. The office is also a short walk from Balham High Street. You'll be part of a HR team of two, where you'll play a key role in providing HR support across the charity. Over 70% of the charity is deaf so the HR Officer must be willing to complete a BSL Level 1

The HR Officer will manage the employee lifecycle with an emphasis on employee relation cases and ensure the HR policies are up to date. You'll manage the recruitment activities which will range from writing job adverts to on-boarding new starters. Furthermore, you'll support the Head of HR and conduct HR training sessions when required. Finally, you'll need to create reports using MI systems and platforms (Cascade), making any changes when necessary.

Being able to travel is now essential as the role will take the person out to our services located in Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham.

To be a success in the post my client is looking for someone who is CIPD qualified with previous HR experience in the non-profit sector. A knowledge of using Cascade is also desirable. As the organisation is a Deaf charity they would welcome applicants who are Deaf or who understand and can use sign language.
