Vacancy Description

Senior Schools HR Adviser up to £42,684 (PO4) – significant casework experience needed along with a track record of effectively supporting leaders in schools and academies in their management of staff.  The ability to work autonomously and flexibly will be essential.

The Schools HR Service is a small but key service within WF Traded Services.  Whilst still part of the Council, Waltham Forest Traded Services is the grouping of services that trade with schools in the Borough and elsewhere.  We provide a range of services to over 100 schools in areas such as Education Psychology, HR, Governor Services, Outdoor Education, Financial Services, Legal Services, Catering and Music.

Our services only exist because schools value them and select us to support them.  Due to ongoing customer demand and in response to changing needs we are seeking to recruit to this post.

Waltham Forest is a vibrant East London Borough and is the first London Borough of Culture.  Furthermore, we have been recognised as the Local Authority of the Year in the 2019 MJ Awards.  We have more green space than any borough north of the Thames and this coupled with great transport connections to the city and beyond, makes it is a fantastic place to live and work.

Closing date for completed applications is 9am on Monday 21 October 2019.  Interviews scheduled for week commencing 21 October 2019.  For informal discussions please contact Gerry Kemble, Head of WF Traded Services on 07817 431464.
