Senior HR Officer
As England’s independent regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessments, Ofqual’s job is to maintain standards, to make sure that qualifications accurately reflect the knowledge and skills people have attained through a range of different learning methods. We work with other Civil Service departments across the spectrum of education to deliver on our priorities and to ensure the best possible outcomes for learners in England.
We are looking to recruit a Senior HR Officer who will help to deliver on our Wellbeing, Equality and Diversity and Inclusion work. The role will support our HR Manager with the development and delivery of Wellbeing and EDI initiatives as well as working with the wider People Team with the generation and analysis of management information and other HR activities. You will have a Level 5 CIPD qualification or equivalent experience of working in a People Team as well as in depth knowledge of EDI related legislation. You will be confident to challenge the status quo and support senior managers to find innovative solutions, collaborating with key stakeholders on HR and EDI policies.
Our role as a People Team is to support the organisation to be able to adapt and respond effectively to change and to ensure we have sufficient numbers of people with the right skills and attributes, supported to succeed. The organisation has experienced a challenging 18 months and so looking after the wellbeing of our colleagues has never been more important. It’s an exciting time to join Ofqual and our Team as we respond to the wellbeing challenges and sharpen our focus on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion to implement a range or initiatives and deliverables as part of our 2021 People Plan. We have an ambitious set of priorities that we need your help to deliver on this year and you will be instrumental in helping to shape our approach to 2022 and beyond.
Ofqual is a rewarding, dynamic place to work. The team strongly encourages flexible working and personal learning & development.
Diversity and Inclusion is important to us.
We actively encourage applications both from those within the Civil Service, and outside. We particularly encourage applications from those of a BAME background and those with disabilities, who are currently under-represented within Ofqual at this level.
We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment.
