Place2Be is a leading children's mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.

We provide emotional and therapeutic services in over 294 primary and secondary schools in England, Scotland and Wales, reaching a school population of approximately 142,000 children - building children's resilience early in life through counselling, creative work and play.

Place2Be also provides training on mental health and wellbeing for teachers and other professionals who work with children and young people, so we can help to build “mentally healthy” schools and communities where all children can thrive and grow up with prospects, not problems.

If you share our core values of perseverance, integrity, compassion and creativity and have the counselling skills and patience to support some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people and families, we would love you to join us.  It’s sensitive and demanding work – but hugely rewarding and fulfilling - you will be helping give young people brighter futures.

Overall purpose of the role

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a high performing, fast paced HR team in order to provide comprehensive human resources support to the whole organisation.

The role will contribute to Place2Be’s strategic and operational HR objectives and provide the full range of HR generalist advice and guidance to managers and employees. As the first point of contact for all employee related matters, you will ensure that staff are aware of our HR policies and procedures and that these are being implemented consistently across the organisation. You will develop and coach managers so that they can confidently and consistently address any staffing issues that may arise alongside managing routine employee relations cases. You will also coordinate and administer regular HR activities including the work experience programme whilst contributing to a range of HR projects.

Proven experience in a HR function alongside a good understanding of employment legislation and employee relations is essential, together with an enthusiastic and flexible approach to work, strong interpersonal skills and a genuine passion to make a difference.
