About the role

You will work within a team of Consultants providing professional advice and guidance.

You will be working to build the capacity of line managers to resolve people management issues effectively and professionally within a busy and fast paced environment and these will include large change programmes, grievance, disciplinary and capability cases. It is important to us that we meet and strive to exceed where possible the expectations of our customers.   We are therefore looking for someone with excellent communication skills, personal resilience and the ability to build strong working relationships with customers whilst contributing to continuous evolution in quality and scope of services provided. In return, working in a large organisation, you will benefit from exposure to a wide variety of work, which is strongly supported by an experienced team, which will enable excellent development opportunities.

Key Skills Include:

  • Communicating effectively with customers, colleagues, partners, trade union representatives including providing professional challenge as appropriate, including the ability to quickly develop credibility and strong relationships with key stakeholders
  • Developing and delivering training and other targeted interventions as required.
  • Demonstrating a commitment to the Principles of Equalities and ensuring this is projected in all interactions.

Although this role involves working and collaborating as part of a well-supported team you will be given the tools to work independently and flexibly as the business needs to allow you to deliver work to a high standard and to deliver high impact customer service.

Application process

As part of your application, you will need to complete your education and work history and upload a supporting statement. Your supporting statement is the most important part of your application as it will be used in the shortlisting process to assess whether you meet the essential requirements for the role that are set out in the person specification and to decide whether you should be offered an interview.
