Human Resources Manager

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, based in Aberystwyth, is looking to recruit a permanent full time Human Resources Manager. Established in 1908, the Commission has a leading national role in developing and promoting understanding of the archaeological, built, and maritime heritage of Wales.

This is a great opportunity for you to exercise and develop your HR skills with a small, friendly, and dynamic high achieving organisation. Most of our staff fulfil specialist roles and are highly skilled, agile, and passionate about their work.

The successful candidate will have a qualification in a HR related subject and/or a substantial level of HR experience.  You will also be able to work with a high degree of autonomy and be able to negotiate, persuade, encourage, influence, and build effective relationships.  You will also have a strong commitment to equality and inclusion initiatives and be comfortable with delivering bilingual training and presentations.

This is a broad and interesting role which has a direct impact on the day-to-day work of the Commission and has input and influence at a strategic management level.

The Commission is a bilingual organisation and therefore the requirement to speak and work through the medium of Welsh is essential.

Working for the Commission
We are an equal opportunities employer and it is our belief that everyone should have the same opportunities for employment and advancement based on their abilities, qualifications and suitability for the job.

Equality of opportunity is embedded in our employment policies and procedures including recruitment, training, promotion, performance management, induction and probation.

COVID-19 working arrangements
Under normal circumstances all of our staff work out of our office in Aberystwyth. At the present time however, our staff are complying with the Welsh Government request to work remotely when they can in order to minimise the risk from the Covid pandemic. This is a temporary arrangement and does not constitute a change to our designated place of work.

We review the situation regularly and once restrictions are eased, and staff start to return to normal office-based working, we will be looking at changing our existing arrangements to allow staff the opportunity to request a more flexible way of working. This could be in the form of smart working, where staff work part of their time in the office and part of their time remotely, or homeworking where staff work at home for the majority of their working hours.

Please be aware that all roles at the Commission are and will continue to be based in the UK and not overseas.
