The best HR transforms lives.

So does Single Homeless Project, where preventing homelessness and transforming lives is our mission - that's the bottom line and you could contribute to this.   

Single Homeless Project is a London-wide charity. Our vision is of a society where everyone has a place to call home and the chance to live a fulfilling life. We help single Londoners by preventing homelessness, providing support and accommodation, promoting wellbeing, enhancing opportunity, and being a voice for change. From supporting people in crisis to helping people take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to 10,000 lives every year across all 32 boroughs.

We are looking for at least one HR Advisor (maybe more, depending on what hours you can commit to) to join us and be a key member of our HR Department, providing advice on a wide range of people management issues; including absence management, performance management, disciplinary and grievance. We welcome applications from HR professionals looking for a part time role or a job share, as well as those looking for full time roles.

As the HR Advisor, you will work with line-managers to provide solution focused advice that supports SHP to deliver high quality services to our clients. This role offers diversity and variety across the employee life cycle while focusing on advice and employee relation case work.  It will also include policy writing, leading on specific projects and some HR administration.

To be successful, you will be CIPD qualified or have relevant equivalent employee relations experience.  You will also have a sound working knowledge of employment law and demonstrable experience of resolving sensitive employee relations issues.  Strong interpersonal, analytical and written and verbal communication skills, along with the resilience to work within a busy team are also needed.

In return, you will develop valuable HR experience, taking on work with significant responsibility, you will be part of a team of committed, supportive HR professionals and in an organisation that works to live up to its values.  There will also be opportunities to build on your professional HR expertise and scope to get involved in current HR Projects across the HR & OD Department. (Currently, these include upgrading and extending our HR IT systems, improving our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, improving staff wellbeing and retention and becoming a learning organisation.) 

Closing date: 10th July 2022 (at midnight).
