Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, Richmondshire District Council has an exciting opportunity for a motivated, experienced HR professional to act as HR and Payroll Manager on a permanent, part time-basis. The successful candidate will be a ‘hands-on’ generalist HR practitioner, but also able to operate at a strategic, corporate level.

Based at our refurbished office at Mercury House in the market town of Richmond you will lead a team delivering HR and Payroll services to a range of service areas across the Council, supporting the delivery of services to meet the current and future needs of the local community.

The role will involve working closely with the Corporate Director (Resources) and the Senior Management Team to produce workforce initiatives which will drive a cultural change to promote the successful delivery of dedicated services within the framework of the business plans

You will lead the Human Resources team and implement a People strategy across the organisation to address key people-centric change management issues including

  • complex case management

Being based in Richmond allows easy access to the Yorkshire Dales which brings both the challenge of service delivery in a rural area but offers unparalleled opportunities for a great work/life balance.
