Human Resources Manager

Sophia, a charity set up in 1997, working with its collaborative partner Midlands Simon Community is entering a new phase of its development. Sophia was founded on the simple idea that the best way to support those who are homeless is to help them have a home of their own as quickly as possible. We are in the process of implementing plans to significantly provide more homes and support more people to move out of homelessness.

As part of our expansion plans we would like to appoint a Human Resources Manager. This is a new post and the successful candidate will lead and develop the HR function within our organisation.

The HR Manager will advise on employee relations and employment law issues to ensure a co-ordinated approach in line with the organisation culture and strategy. The person will also co-ordinate the Health and Safety plan and processes.

A CIPD accredited qualification, excellent interpersonal skills and relevant work experience for the post are essential criteria for the role.

The successful candidate, while an employee of Sophia, will also oversee the Human Resource Programme for the Midlands Simon Community.
