We are looking for a subject expert who can lead, inspire and motivate our hard-working HR Team in delivering a robust and professional HR services. The role holder will help educate our managers on good people management and support the wider contribution the People agenda makes to the College achieving its strategic and operational objectives.

The ideal person will take initiative in the development of People Services whilst effectively managing the HR systems and services needed for an organisation like Capel Manor College. Having grown significantly in size in the last 10 years, there is plenty of scope for developing the service.

The successful candidate will be a professionally qualified HR practitioner having perhaps already been the Head of a small team with an eye on the future or an HR Business Partner in a larger organisation with a desire to make a bigger impact. They will need to have an understanding from day one of the processes needed to make an HR department effective. Knowledge of employment law is a must, and experience of education would be useful but not essential.

The opportunity to work with a new Senior Leadership Team who want HR to step up its game in support of the College doing the same, the role will allow for autonomy in developing the service and have considerable support in doing so.

We are committed to creating and promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce that better reflects the wider community we support. We particularly welcome applicants from groups currently under-represented in senior roles, including females, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), people with disabilities and from the LGBTQ community.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of our students and expect everybody working for the College to share this commitment. We actively seek DBS clearance checks for applications of employment as part of our safeguarding procedures.
