Your future is here

A place to thrive

Being part of Nottingham College means playing a vital part in helping thousands of people reach their potential. Together, we’re making a positive difference to our learners, to our communities and to each other. We’re building better futures, for others and for ourselves. Here, you’ll have the freedom to work in a way that suits you, the support to thrive and the opportunity to shape your career.

Who we need

The People Services Team Leader is a pivotal role within our shared service team, responsible for managing the People Services shared service inbox, organising team workload, as well as carrying an administration workload themselves, supporting on more complex queries.

The role requires exceptional organisation, communication skills, as well as a deep understanding of HR processes and a commitment to delivering high-quality service to our managers and colleagues across the college.

What you’ll bring

We are looking for someone who can manage a fast-paced environment, with periods of high traffic at peak times, such as payroll or start of term time. The ideal candidate will be able to remain calm under pressure, supporting the People Services team to prioritise workload to ensure our colleagues receive accurate responses, documentation and pay in a timely manner.

We are looking for someone with the below experience:

  • Extensive HR administration

  • Pensions schemes and pension administration

  • Payroll handover

  • Line management/team leadership

  • Experience working in the Education sector is also desirable, but not essential.

A place to belong

Join a diverse, vibrant community of over 1,300 staff and feel welcome from day one. Whether it’s enjoying a cuppa and a chat at our Wellness Cafes, collaborating with your colleagues or making the most of the facilities on our campuses, this is a place you can feel involved, connected and supported. With an attractive benefits package including 35 days annual leave, flexible working opportunities, access to a generous pension scheme and perks package, this is a place where you will feel valued and where you can grow and develop. It’s a place where you can share your ideas, work with people from all kinds of backgrounds and together, make a positive difference.

Be a part of a dynamic and diverse team that thrives on innovation, creativity, and outstanding outcomes. Our aim is for our workforce to mirror the rich diversity of the individuals and communities we serve, creating an environment where a range of experiences, skills, and viewpoints are valued. Within our inclusive workplace, everyone is given the opportunity to belong. As part of this we are happy to consider any reasonable adjustments that successful candidates may need.

Nottingham College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of our students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks including employer references and an enhanced DBS check will be required for this role.
