About the Role

The role will be responsible for providing full and accurate HR and Recruitment administrative support to this charity. Although supporting the whole HR function, the role focuses on recruitment and will be responsible for supporting the full recruitment lifecycle. This is an extremely varied role – no two days are the same!

Key responsibilities of the HR Advisor include:


  • Providing advice and support to managers on all aspects of employee relations and the implementation of policies and procedures.
  • Providing advice and support to managers on absence management.
  • Providing advice on queries from Charity colleagues.
  • Assisting in the development and maintenance of HR policies, procedures, and processes, responding to changes in employment law and legislation.


About You

Successful applicants should hold a CIPD Level 5 qualification, or equivalent level of experience, and have a good working knowledge of employment legislation and best practice. Previous experience in an operational HR Advisory capacity is also required. As part of your role, you will be supporting our teams based in Wisbech so will need to be able to travel there for regular visits. This is a varied role where you will be able to make a real difference.

We offer hybrid working (one day of your weekly hours can be worked from home once your three-month probation period has been completed). We are looking for a minimum of 25 hours, a maximum of 30 hours, and we can be flexible on the exact working pattern. For office cover, we require you to be in the office on a Friday.

About the Organisation

The employer supports people living in Cambridgeshire with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those in need of end-of-life care. They care for more than 4,000 patients each year at their Hospice in Cambridgeshire, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Community Team.

The Hospice at Home service cares for patients throughout Cambridgeshire who choose to remain in their own homes in their last weeks of life. They are holistic in their approach and the care is tailored to each person’s specific needs. The compassionate team of Nurses and Healthcare Assistants provide practical and holistic care supporting patients and their families.

The organisation is committed to inclusivity, respect, fairness, engagement, and equality of opportunity for their patients and their families, their staff and trustees, their volunteers, and their supporters.

They value the strength that comes with difference and the positive contribution that diversity brings to their community. Therefore, candidates with a disability who meet the minimum criteria will be guaranteed an interview. They are also working to increase diversity throughout the organisation, and they particularly welcome applications from BAME people who are currently under-represented.

The organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults who draw on care and support and expects all colleagues and volunteers to share this commitment.

You may have experience in areas such as: HR Generalist, HR Advisor, Human Resources Advisor, HR Business Partner, HR, Human Resources, People Advisor, HR Officer, HR Specialist, HR Coordinator, HR Consultant, HR Assistant etc.

PLEASE NOTE: This role is being advertised by NFP People on behalf of the organisation.
