This is an exciting time to join the University’s HR leadership team! The University’s new Vice-Chancellor will be joining us in September 2019, and we will embark on developing a new university strategy, from which we will develop our new HR strategy. We employ over 4,000 staff across 30 Academic Departments and 10 Support Departments and have approximately 18,000 students studying a wide range of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes. The Human Resources (HR) Department supports staff, managers and leaders by developing and adopting a range of strategies, expert advice, information and operational services. www.york.ac.uk/admin/hr/.
You will contribute to the development and delivery of this HR strategy, and personally lead some of our key strategic HR project work. You will also contribute to the development and implementation of wider strategic and operational HR project work across the HR service.
You will work collaboratively with senior leaders across the institution, developing and embedding excellence and genuinely inclusive HR practices. Operationally, you will be responsible for leading specific areas, including HR Partnering, transactional and advisory HR Services, compliance, HR Systems and Communications. In short, your role is key in ensuring the delivery of high quality and professional HR services to the institution in line with the ethos and values of the institution.
