We're already a successful college, but we're continually striving to be better and do better - be part of our story!

In the role of HR Advisor, you’ll predominantly be based at Waterfront, Huddersfield. Your focus will be to deliver consistent and accurate HR reporting, coaching and advice to the curriculum area.

We believe learning is not just for our students: it’s an important part of working here too. Staff development opportunities include a mentoring scheme, financial contributions for external qualifications and skills development for current and aspiring managers.
