If you’re looking for a Senior HR Business Partner role in a People Team with a bit of a difference and feel ready to take on your next challenge, then this role could be for you!
Here’s some things we think you should know:
You’ll have the opportunity to help shape the People and Culture Strategy
You can work where, when and how you want with our Hub, Home & Roam approach.
It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to colleagues' experience at work and to thousands of customers’ lives with what you do.
So, what’s working in the People Team as a Senior Business Partner all about then?
As a custodian of our culture, values and behaviours, this role is not only about being a trusted partner to the business and senior leaders, but it’s also about embedding a clear vision and direction for our BP and Advisor team.
Building trusting relationships, providing valuable insights and bringing innovative ideas and solutions will be just some of the ways in which you can help shape the future of Yorkshire Housing. You’ll develop an approach within the team which focuses on us delivering an excellent colleague experience to help us become an employer of choice.
You’ll lead on key people projects such as wellbeing and performance which contribute to the delivery of our People and Culture Strategy.
You’ll be credible, curious and have experience of working with and influencing at a head of service and director level. We don’t need you to know loads about housing, just a lot about what makes people tick.
And what about us?
You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. Yes, we own and manage nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire and make it possible for current and future customers to have a place they’re proud to call home, but we’re also all about making a positive difference in people’s lives. We’re transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers.
The stuff that sets you apart:
You’ll be a seasoned HR leader with extensive experience of partnering with directors and senior leaders in a fast-paced environment along with a track record of the development and delivery of people strategies and plans covering the full spectrum of HRM and development. Your experience will be extensive in employee relations and employment law with demonstrable evidence of managing complex ER issues. TUPE experience is preferred along with a MCIPD qualification.
You’ll also have experience of organisational and job design along with supporting talent and succession reviews. You’ll have also used data for meaningful insight and be able to demonstrate how this work has positively impacted results.
Personally, you’ll be natural coach and a curious independent thinker, calm under pressure but prepared to push boundaries along with being a strong team person with positive influencing skills. When establishing trusted professional relationships, this will come naturally to you, and you’ll also be great at managing expectations with customers. Working at pace and collaboratively will be something you are used to, and you’ll absolutely demonstrate a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Pssst. One of our values is ‘Be Yourself’. We’re passionate about inclusion and we’d love to hear from people from diverse backgrounds for this role.
What’s in it for you?
In return we offer £50,647 for a 35-hour week with 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays.
We also provide a fantastic reward package to suit everyone –a variety of amazing discounts via PerkBox, a great Healthcare cash plan called Health Shield and a contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%! As well as our great benefits and a fantastic work environment, we’re absolutely a company that cares about its employees and its customers.
We promote a flexible working culture, as long as these fit in around the needs of your role. So, you don’t need to take a day off to do that parent-child reading class, take your pet to the vets or both! Just talk it over with your manager, to make sure it fits in around what you need to do and meet business needs.
