An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a HR Manager to join our amazing charity, which exists to provide children from disadvantaged backgrounds with a wonderful week of mud-and-magic in the British countryside.

It’s a great time to join Farms for City Children. We already support thousands of children across England and Wales every year and our new strategic direction will see us grow further, reaching more children who deserve a discovery filled week-in-wellies.

About the role
As an HR generalist, your key purpose will be to manage the day-to-day running of Farms for City Children’s HR function, leading on the high-quality delivery of all HR services across the charity including recruitment, contracting, remuneration and reward, performance, employee relations and assistance, and learning and development; to further develop and apply the charity’s HR policies and procedures; to advise the Executive and Senior Management Team on all HR related matters; and to ensure all HR policies, processes and records are compliant with prevailing legislation.

About you
This role requires practical, hands-on experience of delivering the wide range of HR generalist services required by a small business or charity; an excellent understanding of HR best practice and employment legislation; solid experience of leading complex employee relations and delivering training in HR related topics; CIPD qualification; practical experience of developing and introducing HR policies; and experience of advising senior leadership on HR matters to inform strategic decision making.
In order to succeed, you will be highly motivated by the charity’s work with children, food, the countryside and farming; have a sound working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook; strong attention to detail, producing work with a high level of accuracy; excellent written and oral communication skills and an ability to use information objectively and apply sound judgement in order to make decisions. You will be adaptable and organised in prioritising workloads; work effectively to deadlines and ensure with minimum supervision and demonstrate integrity, understanding the care needed with sensitive information.

What we offer
In return, you will receive a range of benefits, which include:
- 25 days holiday plus statutory bank holidays (pro rata);
- 6% employer contribution to NEST pension scheme;
- Employee Assistance Programme;
- Dog friendly working environment on a farm in a beautiful location.

To apply, please submit your CV and a supporting statement, outlining how your experience meets the criteria (see attached Job Description and Person Specification), to recruitment@farmsforcitychildren.org.
Please apply by 4pm on the closing date.
