HR & Training Adviser (Advertisement)
The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) is a statutory, non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and administers non-domestic rating and council tax appeals. We provide general procedural advice on these matters and support the Valuation Tribunal for England (VTE).
We are now recruiting to a new and exciting HR & Training Adviser role to support the wider HR & Training team.
If successful, you will be expected to get involved in all aspects of HR & Training and any associated activities. You must already have experience of payroll and generalist HR activities. We want you to be instrumental in the development of our new HR & Training system and our learning strategies for staff. You will also be involved in developing training for volunteers engaged via our sister organisation the Valuation Tribunal for England (VTE).
This HR and Training role is very much a generic and flexible one that requires the ability to deal with complex matters. It requires an understanding and appreciation of the agile and important role HR and Training plays within a small public sector organisation and the particular responsibilities associated with such an organisation.
Whilst at the outset your focus will be on providing support to the Head of HR & Training and the Principal HR Adviser in dealing with generic HR issues, you will also be expected to provide an appropriate level of support to the Training Manager in the development of our Learning Management System and in developing the VTS as a learning organisation via both remote and face-to-face learning. We also want to progress our HR and Training information and metrics to support organisational and strategic decision making.
To be successful in your application, you should be able to demonstrate attainment of an appropriate CIPD level 5 qualification (or its equivalent) with associated knowledge and workplace experience. We view this as an important professional role capable of advising managers and colleagues on HR & Training matters and progressing individual cases and projects - although there is also a requirement to be competent in dealing with any elements of HR and Training administration. You will be expected to be a team player capable of constructive debate and discussion with colleagues in our friendly and supportive team and in developing and providing solutions to any challenges that present themselves.
We believe that this job ideally requires a full-time postholder (i.e. 36 hour, 5 day per week role) although consideration may be given to a part-time appointment over 4 or 5 days of the week. Exact hours and pattern to be discussed at interview. The role will be office based at our London Leman Street office although we are currently occupying the office for 3 days per week whilst we review the situation.
We offer a competitive salary ranging from £32,953 to £38,152 (Local Government pay award pending). We also offer membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and 25 days annual leave (rising to 30 days after five years’ service), plus two employer determined non-statutory days (usually at Christmas/New Year). The leave year starts from 1 April each year (pro-rata for part-time workers).
