Role of the HR Partner

The role of the HR Partner is similar to that of a local HR Manager. Their primary objective is to support organisational effectiveness by working strategically with management teams and individual staff managers, supporting them in dealing with organisational and individual challenges, and in developing proactive and planned staffing, employee relations and organisational strategies.

Functionally, HR Partners are part of the HR Dept. but are each assigned to specific Colleges or VP Units to work as part of the senior management teams. HR Partners typically spend most of their time physically located in the College or Unit they support, ensuring their accessibility. Working as part of the management teams allows HR Partners to build a deep understanding of the operational and strategic challenges of the area and informs the best practice initiatives they can partner with the management teams in developing and implementing. These can include specific projects relating to strategy clarification, staffing models, staff planning, management reviews, staff engagement, and change management.

HR Partners work closely with specialist HR colleagues in areas such as Learning & Development, Organisational Development and Employee Relations to deliver excellent services to Schools and Units in pursuit of organisational effectiveness.

HR Partners are also available to assist individual staff members who may require confidential guidance, advice or support.
