We are looking to appoint a highly capable HR Manager who, as part of the trust’s central team, will play an essential role in supporting the continued development and growth of the trust.
A high-quality human resources function is central to our offer to schools and this vacancy offers the opportunity to lead the team through an exciting phase of our development.

Your main base will be Shelley College, in an attractive site near Kirkburton and Denby Dale in Huddersfield. The successful candidate must be willing to travel to other schools in our partnership.
In return, we offer an excellent salary package, which generously rewards high performance; 27.5 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays; excellent support and training; and employee benefits including an attractive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, an Employee Wellbeing Scheme and Share Academy Savers.
