What we’re looking for:

The Diocese of Salford is seeking to recruit an exceptional individual to the newly created post of Human Resources Manager.  This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced HR practitioner who thrives on driving change and promoting excellence. Reporting to the Director of Administration and Personnel, the post holder will act as the HR lead working closely with senior managers to support the development and implementation of effective HR solutions focussed on the current and emerging needs of the Diocese.

The HR Manager will

  • Provide a comprehensive human resources service for the Diocese including providing technical advice to Trustees, senior managers and clergy
  • Support strategic objectives by developing and implementing policies and procedures to ensure a complete and effective HR solution.
