An opportunity has arisen for a part-time HR Manager to provide the full HR remit to two Aldridge Education schools based in Brighton (BACA & PACA) and to support with the implementation of national HR initiatives.

As the HR function is yet to be fully embedded the right candidate must be prepared to work in an evolving HR environment.

This is a dynamic role which offers the opportunity to make your mark in Human Resources.
