We are an expanding Multi-Academy Trust that currently includes six primary schools, one all-through school and a multi-site alternative provision Pupil Referral Unit. We also work closely alongside and in collaboration with a Local Authority maintained nursery, Canterbury Nursery School.

The role will be varied and interesting, there is never a dull day, and we support and coach each other through the challenges HR brings. If you are passionate about delivering a service that is flexible and solution-focussed, you will love working with us.

An integral part of an outstanding HR team with an enviable reputation, this position is most suited to someone who truly wants to make a difference to the lives of the young people of Bradford. The right candidate will be a strong team player, proactive and innovative, with a desire to challenge the norm. Previous experience of managing HR case work is essential as is a desire to provide the best possible HR support and advice to our schools.
