The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.

The People Partner will work as part of the wider People Team to provide a pro-active operational Business Partnering service to various departments, supporting managers and directors with core People matters relating to their teams.
As a trusted HR professional, the People Partner will provide support across the employee lifecycle, providing a high level of service to the business areas, providing effective and pragmatic solutions to a wide range of people management issues.
The successful candidate will work closely with other People Partners, providing fair and consistent advice across the Trust from employee relation casework to organisational change. They will assist in embedding our wider People Strategy, developing a culture which supports our Values and Behaviours and promoting our wellbeing initiatives across the Trust.
This is a full time hybrid role with the expectation of working from our Grantham office once a week.

You will be CIPD level 5 qualified or working towards the qualification with previous experience of working within a HR Business Partner/ Adviser capacity.
You’ll have an approachable and supportive nature with experience of coaching and influencing stakeholders. Your prioritisation, planning and organisational skills will be outstanding along with high attention to detail and accuracy. Experience of working within a non-profit organisation in a HR capacity as well as knowledge of MHR iTrent systems is desirable but not essential.

There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.

At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.
We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.
We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.
We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we find the suitable candidate before the closing date.
