People Operations Administration Supervisor

Hours: Ideally 36 hours

Morley College London aims to have a workforce that is reflective of the diverse population that it serves.  The College particularly encourages applications from ethnic minorities and disabled people who are currently under-represented within the College at this level.

About Morley College London

Established in 1889, and with our roots stretching back even further, Morley College London is one of the country's oldest and largest specialist providers of adult education.  We provide long-term, sustainable and affordable programmes of lifelong learning across three centres – North Kensington, Chelsea and Waterloo – including 16-19 provision at North Kensington and Chelsea.

As one of only nine Specialist Designated Institutions (SDIs) in the UK, we serve more than 17,000 students through a coherent, student-centred course offer, underpinned by our mission to empower individuals and strengthen communities through education in Arts, Culture and Applied Sciences. Whether studying for personal development and well-being, to gain essential skills (English, Maths, IT), to access higher education, or for career development or change, our vision is for ambitions to be inspired and achieved through learning.

Following Morley College’s merger with Kensington and Chelsea College in February 2020, the College is reshaping its curriculum and professional service teams to facilitate an ambitious plan for development and growth.  As the UK looks to a post-COVID recovery, Morley College London is more determined than ever before to support Londoners to learn, and so we’re looking for applications from talented individuals with commitment and enthusiasm.

About the role

We have a new opportunity for a People Operations Administration Supervisor based at our Waterloo Centre.

You will be leading a small team of administrators, introducing and embedding HR administrative processes while we look at implementing a new HR Information System.

We need you to be highly organised, focused on our customers (direct in terms of staff as well as our students) and able to work well in a busy, dynamic environment.

In return you will join a fascinating and exciting College, known across London for excellent learning opportunities – from ceramics and fashion to maths and English. You will receive 30 days annual leave, access to our courses at a significant discount, a very generous and attractive pension scheme and staff retail discount scheme covering most if not all of our major UK retailers. On top of all that Morley is a friendly, supportive learning environment, committed to social justice and providing an inclusive, diverse and welcoming working environment.

We look forward to your application.
