VTS Vacancies

Full time/part-time HR & Training Adviser

We are looking for someone to join us to support our HR & Training Team working across all aspects of HR and Training giving advice and support to managers and colleagues and helping us to build resilience within the organisation on HR and Training matters.

As a small team, we all chip in so there is a requirement to be competent in dealing with any elements of HR and Training administration. You will be a team player capable of constructive debate and discussion with colleagues in our friendly and supportive team and in developing and providing solutions to any challenges that present themselves.

Initially you will be supporting several critical areas of the business. The successful candidate will be expected to be proactive in facilitating our monthly payroll (and pensions) processing requirements, dealing with any queries that may arise and ensuring a smooth and accurate monthly payroll. Following appropriate training you will also help to develop and create new and innovative modules on our Learning Management System to support our learning strategy.

Whilst a full-time 36 hour per week position, applications will be considered for those with appropriate experience who want to work a little less than full-time. The job will be based at our London Office – which is currently in Leman Street, near Aldgate East and Tower Hill/Tower Gateway stations. Along with our other staff, you will be expected to spend 60% of your available time in our office environment and the rest working from home. Initially, during your induction and your six-month probation period we may expect you to attend the office a little more frequently whilst you get fully trained and develop your knowledge and expertise on our VTS systems and processes.

To be successful in your application, you should be able to demonstrate attainment of an appropriate CIPD qualification (CIPD level 5 or its equivalent) but it is vitally important that you also have the appropriate knowledge and workplace experience of dealing with generic HR matters but particularly significant experience of payroll and pensions processing. We view this as an important professional role capable of advising and business partnering managers and colleagues on all HR & Training matters.

In return, we offer a competitive salary with the full-time equivalent salary ranging from £37,107 to £42,306. The pro-rata equivalent salary for less than full-time will be dependent upon the hours you work. Salary progression is dependent upon successful performance and your qualification level. We offer membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and 26 days annual leave (rising up to 31 on length of service), plus two employer determined non-statutory days (usually at Christmas/New Year). As the leave year starts from 1 April all leave will be pro-rationed for part-time workers and your leave entitlement as a full-timer will also be dependent upon when you start during the leave year.

To apply you will need to provide us with a personal statement telling us how you meet the criteria for the job as detailed in our job description, person specification and this advert. You should also provide an up-to-date CV which details current salary and notice period if you are currently in work. Please also complete our Diversity Monitoring Form and in your e-mail tell us where you saw the role advertised. Send your completed CV, personal statement and Diversity Monitoring Form to recruitment@valuationtribunal.gov.uk.

The closing date for received applications is 23:55 on 25 July 2024. Interviews/assessments are likely to take place during the 2nd or 3rd week of August.
