  • 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.

I couldn't recommend Solutions for HR highly enough!! Their team are so knowledgeable but also very friendly and quick to respond. They provide excellent and clear guidance when we need it and having the retainer is so reassuring, when HR issues can sometimes be unpredictable. They are so invaluable to our growing start up!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Solutions for HR, a leading HR company based in Manchester, and I must say, I was extremely impressed with their level of professionalism, expertise, and commitment to their clients. From the very beginning, both Jane's (Jayne and Jane) were attentive to my needs and worked tirelessly to ensure that I received the best possible service. They took the time to understand my business and its unique challenges, and developed a customised HR solution that perfectly met my needs. Their team of experts were knowledgeable, approachable, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I was satisfied with the services they provided. They were also very responsive, and I always felt like they had my best interests at heart. Overall, I would highly recommend Solutions for HR to anyone looking for great HR services. They are a company that truly cares about their clients, and they will work tirelessly to help you achieve your business goals. Thank you Solutions for HR for your outstanding service!
