The Prospect Trust is a leading Multi-Academy Trust in the South of England, with an aim of providing outstanding education for all learners within a family of local academies. There are currently three academies within the Trust: The Sixth Form College Farnborough, Tomlinscote School and Frimley Church of England Junior School.

The Trust has already created a number of centralised functions to support the delivery of outstanding education, including HR, Finance & payroll, Estates & facilities and Careers guidance.  This is an exciting time for either an experienced HR Assistant or an individual seeking to embark upon an HR career to join our team, as we will support the successful post holder to understand the processes that apply across Trust academies. 

The HR Service delivery team offer first line customer support to all Trust staff.  As this role deals with a wide range of queries covering all aspects of the employee life cycle, it offers an excellent insight into all areas of HR. This includes a diverse range of activities, including but not limited to, co-ordinating recruitment campaigns, preparing employment contracts, providing generalist HR advice, organising training courses and processing family friendly leave requests.

There is never a quiet moment in HR so this role will suit somebody who thrives in a busy team-working environment. When providing first line advice you will need to assess the nature of the query and the terms of employment that apply to the particular staff group, in order to provide advice and guidance or appropriately escalate the issue to the relevant  HR Business Partner.

To be successful in the role you will have excellent interpersonal and customer service skills, with the ability to communicate with a wide range of individuals. The ability to work as part of a team and work independently is essential, as is high attention to detail to ensure the accuracy of HR records and documentation.

This is a rewarding and developing role, but you will need to enjoy a fast-paced challenge at a time of change for our team. Proven experience within an HR role is an advantage as is an existing CIPD qualification, however the Trust would consider sponsoring the successful candidate to achieve or further their current qualification status.  The Trust will offer extensive training on any external database systems, but would expect the successful candidate to have significant experience of utilising Microsoft office, particularly Word

The successful candidate will be required to work 37 hours per week and this is NOT a term-time only role.
