HR Manager

Are you a self-starter with a “hands-on” attitude and tangible passion for HR? Want to take on an engaging role with an organisation that’s making a positive impact on the UK’s education system? If so, read on.

About Us

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement.

We do this by summarising the best available evidence in plain language for busy, time-poor teachers and senior leaders, generating new evidence of what works and what doesn’t work to improve teaching and learning, and supporting teachers and senior leaders across the country to use this evidence to achieve the maximum possible benefit for children and young people.

The Role

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced standalone HR Manager, who comes from a generalist background, to execute our people initiatives, providing great internal customer support and driving HR functional excellence and process improvement.

As the HR Manager, you’ll take the lead in managing and driving operational HR, helping to support our Senior Managers, recruitment and administrative duties.

This position requires experience in managing HR projects and strong working knowledge of UK employment legislation and HR best practices.

About You

To join us as an HR Manager, you will need to have already worked as an HR Generalist but are now ready to join an organisation that gives you the chance to lead on HR initiatives.

As the HR Manager, you will be highly versatile and adept at developing and maintaining strong working relationships with stakeholders.

You’ll be confident in advising managers and comfortable working in a complex, fast-paced delivery environment.

What you can expect from us

- Salary of £50,000 per annum D.O.E
- Flexible start and end working times (core hours between 10am and 4pm)
- Flexible working opportunities
- 27 days’ holiday per annum plus Bank Holidays
- Pension matched with a 5% employer contribution
- Life insurance cover
- Interest-free season ticket loan and cycle scheme
- Enhanced maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave pay (*conditions apply)
