Solutions for HR is a growing HR and Employment Law consultancy based in Bury providing a complete range of outsourced HR and employment law services to small and medium-sized businesses in the North West and beyond.

As HR Adviser you will be working within a team of HR professionals, responsible for providing professional and commercial HR and employment law support to clients. We are not a call centre and provide a range of local and personal services.

This role provides a fantastic opportunity to further a career in consultancy and with clients in all sectors and industries, it will provide a broad and varied range of experiences and knowledge.

Are you what we are looking for?

You could be from a consultancy role already or have most of your experience from internal HR roles; either would be perfect for us.

We are looking for a resilient and pragmatic HR professional who has up to date knowledge of employment law and is experienced and confident in managing wide-ranging and sometimes complex HR issues.

You should expect to be able to ‘hit the ground running’.

Your client support will involve office-based telephone and email support and occasional client-facing meetings, onsite or virtual.

Your expert HR and employment law knowledge will be underpinned by strong administration experience, meticulous attention to detail and outstanding customer service.

What you’ll be doing

  • Advising clients on disciplinary and grievance processes, from investigations through to appeals.
  • Advising clients on restructuring, redundancy and TUPE, supporting them through the process.
  • Advising clients on performance management processes and sickness absence management.
  • Drafting documents to support advice given, reports containing your recommendations and outcome letters.
  • Management of own caseload; you will see a case through from start to finish, building up relationships with your clients.
  • Conducting strategy meetings with clients to identify the most suitable approach.
  • Providing a coaching role to clients with their HR issues.
  • Writing guidance documents, fact sheets and legal updates to issue to clients following case law updates and legislative changes.
  • Supporting wider HR projects and business activities within the team as required.

What you’ll need

  • CIPD qualified – level 5 as a minimum.
  • A track record of advising employers on complex and varied HR and employment law issues.
  • Sound understanding and knowledge of UK employment law and its pragmatic application to assist our varied client base in achieving their business objectives.
  • Ability to interpret information from the client to form a clear view and exhibit commercial awareness when thinking on your feet.
  • The ability to be impartial when conducting hearings on behalf of clients.
  • Tact, diplomacy, and attention to detail.
  • Solutions orientated and ‘can do’ approach.
  • Strong and articulate communication skills, both written and verbal with the ability to communicate with a range and number of people at all levels.
  • Ability to apply sound judgment and identify and appropriately manage risk.
  • Ability to manage, prioritise and adapt to a busy and changing workload.
  • Great team player and positive attitude.
  • Passionate about excellent customer service.
  • Integrity and professionalism.

What we can offer you

  • A friendly, supportive and fun team environment.
  • An honest and open culture.
  • Exposure to a breadth of HR and employment law activities, situations and learning opportunities.
  • Investment in your learning and continuous professional development.
  • A good work-life balance – there is no taking work home, no mobile phone ringing out of hours, no time recording.
  • Excellent perks including generous holiday, your birthday off, enhanced pension contribution, private health and free onsite parking.
  • Full time or part-time hours and some homeworking.

If you believe you meet the above, we would love to hear from you.

We've been using Solutions for HR for several years now. CHASE International isn't large enough for our own dedicated HR person so it's good to have a team that we can call that we have confidence in.
