We are a not-for-profit HR consortium of 127 universities and colleges in our 25 th year of operation. We provide our members across the UK with HERA and FEDRA, the leading role design and analysis products in Higher and Further Education, supported by expert consultancy and training.

Due to growing demand - we will support the first-time implementation of role analysis in a further 20 FE and HE organisations this year - we seek an experienced People Management/HR professional to join our four existing Member Engagement and Reward Consultants.

You will manage a portfolio of c. 20-25 member organisations in order to:

  • build, maintain and develop successful working relationships with university and college HR teams
  • analyse needs, respond to local resource and time requirements, and deliver consultancy and training on site
  • prepare and deliver new business proposals for existing and new clients

We need professionals experienced in enabling organisations to deliver transformational People Management/HR practices including job evaluation, pay and reward, talent management, organisational restructuring or development. Previous experience of the higher or further education sectors is desirable.

You will be self-motivated, organised and flexible so that you can work from home and different locations effectively to achieve individual and team objectives and meet project deadlines. You will be resilient, often working independently as well as collaboratively to share intelligence and expertise and develop ECC products and services. The role requires frequent travel and some overnight stays to visit member organisations and attend ECC meetings.
