Pay, Benefits and Reward Partner

About us
This is an exciting opportunity to join a progressive People and Organisational Development (OD) Shared Service that focuses on our customers’ needs across Kingston Council, Sutton Council and our traded services. We are building a strategically focused OD service, that is responsive to our internal customer needs and enables them to provide the services needed for the communities we work with. This a great place to be a HR and OD Professional.

We’ve recently undergone a significant restructure across the service which has resulted in the creation of a number of exciting new roles at various levels and the opportunity to define, shape and deliver our new strategic OD focused model. If you’re passionate about providing excellent customer, People and OD services and thrive in a challenging yet highly rewarding environment, then we want to hear from you.

About the role
You’ll work in partnership with our new Talent and Resourcing Partner to head up and jointly manage our new Resourcing, Talent, Benefit and Reward Team, comprising of 9 staff. Your key focus will be researching and implementing pay, reward and benefit strategies for both Councils and our traded services customers as required. This will involve implementing pay and reward structures, job evaluation and providing advice on pay and grading matters including pay benchmarking and additional incentives such as market supplements as required.

Both Councils currently utilise two different pay grading schemes (HAY for Sutton and GLPC for Kingston) but we are keen to review our pay structures and overall reward strategies in both Councils and you will play a key role in leading on this project.

About you
We’re looking for someone who will question and challenge our ways of working, demonstrate innovation and creativity, can work successfully with key stakeholders and customers within and outside of the Council through effective communication.

In addition, experience in implementing pay and reward strategies and job evaluation (HAY and GLPC desirable) is a must for this role. You’ll also possess strong leadership and management skills to support, motivate and get the best out of your team. You’ll also be someone who can demonstrate a strong commitment to your own personal and professional development to meet the changing demands of the role and be able to work across the wider People and OD Service to contribute to the successful delivery of key priority projects.

A full overview of the skills, abilities and experience we’re looking for is outlined in the job profile.

Our offer
You’ll have access to a wide range of staff benefits, some of which include:

  • 29 days annual leave plus 8 statutory bank holidays
  • Support to progress your career with relevant development opportunities and the chance to play a part in key projects
  • Three volunteering days a year
