Human Resources Manager

Do you have the skills and experience to be our People Person?


We have a fantastic opportunity for a proven, generalist full time HR Manager to join our highly successful organisation.

This is very much a hands-on role which covers all aspects of HR - from recruitment and employee relations to budgeting, training and development and HR administration.

Recruitment and helping people reach their potential is a big part of the role, so you will need to be experienced in all aspects of resourcing from drafting job adverts through to interviewing, induction training and beyond. You will need to be adept at recognising talent in individuals, and finding the very best people who will help contribute to our future success. You will also need to have experience in dealing with employee relations, and the confidence to take responsibility for any employee matters which arise. Above all you will need to demonstrate you can manage with our trademark warm and empathetic style at all times.

You will need to be organised, proactive and great at multi-tasking. As well as exceptional people skills you will need to have a good head for figures. Exceptional customer service and communication skills are also essential. If you have payroll management experience too, that would be an advantage, although not essential.

Applicants must be CIPD qualified, numerate and with excellent written English skills. All candidates must be prepared to work some weekends, as required.

Please send your CV, along with a persuasive covering letter and your current salary details to our Managing Director, Paul Gingell, by email to

Please note that as with all positions currently, and in light of the ongoing and fluid COVID 19 pandemic, start dates may need to be deferred for successful candidates. Again, due to the ongoing pandemic and surrounding uncertainty, as a sensible precaution some positions may be offered on a temporary, probationary contract of either 3 months or 6 months, with permanent positions available thereafter subject to certain conditions.
