  • Oasis Restore

  • Kent | (SCP 14) £25,409 to (SCP 18) £27,344 p/a

Do you want to be part of a determined and innovative team developing the UK’s first secure school?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Payroll and HR Officer to join the People Services and Development Team which will play a key role in helping to create an innovative, inclusive, and therapeutic environment for staff and children alike. Initially the postholder will largely play a hands-on role in a mass recruitment, onboarding and induction program as well as helping the team to set up the payroll and pension arrangement and benefits offer to get the school operational and then as it becomes more established will provide a more broad, professional HR service that is in alignment with our ethos, values, best practise and employment law.

 

The role and what we are looking for

We are looking for someone who already is, or is looking to make the next step, to being a Payroll and HR Officer. Somebody who is self-motivated, diligent, and willing to learn quickly through trial and error. You will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to help build a completely new organisation that has not been tried before in the UK and in the process, positively change the lives of both staff and disadvantage children in custody or on remand alike.

In your role as Payroll and HR Officer you will fully assist the People Services and Development department with all transactional activities required to manage the whole employee life cycle such as marketing, recruitment and selection, induction, inputting and analysing data for payroll and pensions, supporting Occupational Health referrals, all in alignment with the Oasis Restore ethos and values, best practise and employment law.

We don’t expect you to do this alone. You will have the support of senior HR members of the People Services and Development team as well as an opportunity to collaborate with other HR teams within the wider Oasis family who communicate regularly to discuss ideas and share best practice.
