Last year CHS Healthcare helped 19,808 people to get support, when and where they needed it. We bring together the NHS, social care, providers and families to arrange care for people in their homes or in the community. We are the UK’s largest provider of operational support for NHS continuing healthcare. Our purpose is to help everyone to live their lives as fully as possible.

Established in 1995, we have experienced significant success through the dedication and expertise of our talented multi-disciplinary team. The leadership of CHS Healthcare have a drive for excellence in all aspects of the business and the ambition to expand our services.

Keen to make a real impact, have your ideas listened to and contribute to strategic development?

Hardworking, organised and analytical?

A naturally outgoing person who is totally hands on and happy to be dealing with HR strategy one day and sifting CVs the next?

The Role

This is a new role with the opportunity to set the key HR priorities within the business – the successful candidate will be part of the senior management team reporting directly to the CEO. You would manage an HR Team and provide a recruitment service for our teams based throughout the UK. The HRBP will be responsible for all aspects of HR, including recruitment, performance management, employee relations and learning and development. They will optimise CHS Healthcare’s human resources by planning, implementing, and policies, programmes and practices. You will ensure a safe and supportive environment for all employees and help shape the organisational culture.

Duties and Responsibilities

Establishment of performance management across the business to include yearly objective setting and appraisals.

Handling employment relations issues such as grievances and employee welfare.

Managing the recruitment process, including CV screening, interviewing candidates and evaluating and developing our current telephone, competency based, psychometric screening process.

Overseeing staff attendance and absence monitoring.

Providing detailed HR reports to the senior management team.

Leading the teams responsible for the administration of employee-related paperwork.

Leading new starter company inductions.

Managing talent pools and succession plans to ensure the company can continue to operate in the future.

Overseeing training and development of employees.

Qualifications and Skills

Graduate with CIPD qualification ideally with BPS registration/SHL level 2 or similar

Experience – 3 to 5 five years’ experience in a general or specialised HR role in an organisation with a reputation for cutting edge HR initiatives

Management of teams- a track record of recruiting their own team and developing their talents to improve productivity

The challenge

This is an amazing opportunity for an HR professional to develop their career. We currently outsource parts of the role but are keen to bring all aspects in-house. One of our non-executive board members is an ex HR Director so can initially support you in establishing KPIs but is due to retire within the next year.

You may be a generalist number 2 in an established business looking for your first HR management role or an HR manager looking for greater challenges and independence. We would also consider an ambitious specialist who is 2-3 years out of a reputable HR graduate scheme but keen to progress to an all-round role. Health sector experience is not essential. More importantly, you have worked in a place of excellence that values its staff, recruits through psychometric /competency-based systems and develops its talented employees.
