A Christian culture of collaboration is at the heart of our Trust. Our schools have a strong Christian commitment to each other so that individual schools and the family of schools grow and improve through working together in a strong school network.

  • Creating and developing our Trust HR policies
  • Managing our outsourced Schools HR Service (currently with Warrington LA)
  • Liaising and negotiating with Trade Union colleagues
  • Developing and streamlining HR systems across our Trust
  • Supporting members of the Executive team as needed

This is a central Trust role based at our Trust's headquarters at St James House, however, central roles serve all our Trust schools across the Diocesan geography. You will therefore be required to travel regularly to school locations across the Diocesan of Liverpool as required. Our Trust has embraced a flexible working model and therefore you will be able to work from home if desirable and when appropriate.
