Start Network is made up of more than 50 aid agencies across five continents, ranging from large international organisations to national NGOs. Together, our aim is to transform humanitarian action through innovation, fast funding, early action, and localisation.
We embrace diversity, promote equality of opportunity and eliminate unlawful discrimination. We are an equal opportunities employer and treat every application on merit alone. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, black, indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC), and LGBT+ and non-binary candidates. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants who meet our essential selection criteria.
Our roles are open to discussion about flexible working. This role is part-time as one role has been split in two for this maternity cover. If you have the skills to do this role and the Head of People and Culture role, please get in touch. Our office is London-based, but requirement to be in the office will be determined later in 2021. It is likely to be 1 day a week regularly, with additional ad hoc days e.g. for all-staff meetings.
You will support management on all HR matters, working closely with the Head of People and Culture and the HR Administrator and Team Coordinator. For this maternity cover, the role has been split to enable the Head of team to focus on strategic organisational development issues, with the HR Manager taking on day-to-day HR operations.
You will be stepping into the role to cover an exciting period. We have built HR foundations. The next 12 months will be about embedding and improving our ways of working. With a solid understanding of employment legislation, you will enjoy working at different levels, from issuing of contracts, through to reviewing total remuneration. The function supports approximately 40 direct employees and the wider team of approximately 70 employed by host organisations working together as one team. In this small organisation, relationship building is key.
