Band 7

6 Month Fixed Term Contract - 37.5 hours per week

Immediate start


You’re a passionate advocate of how the delivery of brilliant Human Resources support can add true value to an organisation, and you’re someone who genuinely believes in the wider business benefits it can bring to a company.  What’s more, if you have the talents to deliver those benefits, this is a career opportunity to match your ambitions.


First, a bit about us

St Andrew’s is the UK’s leading Mental Health charity with an excellent and well-deserved reputation as a provider of specialist mental healthcare, and a top 20 charity overall. We have a multi-disciplinary team of over 4,500 delivering world-class, innovative, holistic care across four locations.


All of our profits are re-invested into new services and new facilities. Today we proudly continue to build world-class mental healthcare services – with Europe’s largest adolescent unit opened recently. And because we’re independent, we have the flexibility to make a real difference. Joining us is your chance to make a big contribution to amazing work that is transforming the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable people.


What you need to know about this role

This role will be based in Northampton, supporting the delivery of the local People Strategy providing a dynamic, customer focused and professional service across all aspects of operational HR to an operation that runs 24 hours, seven days a week. The role will have a real focus on coaching and supporting our customers to transform service delivery through effective engagement of their people.


And a little more about you

You will have an enthusiastic, positive, collaborative approach and work well as part of a small local HR team linking in with central HR departments as required. The ability to build effective relationships with your customer base will be a priority.

You will be able to work autonomously and will deal with matters proactively and effectively to drive high performance standards and continuous improvement using your coaching skills where required.


You will have a good understanding of Employment Law and best practice employee relations. The role will provide practical support to managers on Employee Relations cases such as performance management, Absence, Disciplinary, Grievance, contractual guidance as well as change management processes. Change management experience would be beneficial.

You’ll have the opportunity to liaise regularly with fellow operational HR professionals ensuring that you always operate within both St Andrew’s Policy and the UK Employment Law framework. Experience of working in a complex and Unionised environment would be an advantage. You will ideally be CIPD qualified or working towards this.


This is a great opportunity to work in a fast paced, varied role where no two days are the same.
