The post is available as a secondment (please seek agreement from your line manager) and will be until 31 December 2024.

This is an exciting opportunity to work for us as a People and Inclusion Officer (HR/Recruitment).

You will work with our friendly, supportive, innovative, and forward-thinking People and Inclusion Team (HR), reporting to a Divisional People Lead and Strategic Recruitment Lead to support the recruitment and staff change management processes for our Making Room for Dignity Programme.

This will involve implementing recruitment and selection plans to recruit to a large number of roles for new Hospitals being built on the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and Kingsway Hospital, Derby sites as well as new services being developed on the Kingsway Hospital site.

You will provide recruitment and HR advice to managers in accordance with employment law and organisational policies, procedures and terms and conditions of employment.

Main duties of the job

You will be responsible for identifying, planning and implementing new and innovative recruitment and selection practices for vacancies that are hard to recruit, where there is a shortage of applicants in the labour market.

You will work with managers to create job adverts, job descriptions and recruitment packs, making sure these are enticing to applicants and look at different ways of adverting these. You will also be part of interview selection panels.

You will be required to attend recruitment events, universities, colleges, schools and job centres along with line managers to promote vacancies for the new hospitals and new services. This will be on occasions at weekends and evenings across Derbyshire and other local geographical areas.

You will create a detailed tracking document which will show the progress of recruiting to vacancies and ensure this is kept up to date. You will present this information in writing and verbally at meetings, therefore excellent communication skills are key.

You will support the Divisional People Lead on change management processes to transfer existing staff to the new services. This will involve attending consultation and one to one meetings as well as collating detailed staffing data.

If this sounds like the role for you then we would like to hear from you. Please contact us if you would like to discuss the role!
