Job Description

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families supports distressed children and their families through innovative therapeutic practice and research, training and promoting awareness of mental health issues. In April 2019, the Centre opened its new Centre of Excellence located in King’s Cross.

This post will work as part of a small HR team, providing an efficient and proactive HR and payroll service across the Centre. The role requires you to work with limited supervision so experience of working in a busy HR team is essential. Candidates must have strong hands on experience of working with HR systems; knowledge of CIPHR would be an advantage. You will be the main point of contact regarding the DBS application process so a good working knowledge of clearance levels and acceptable documentation is also required. The post-holder must have a calm, organised approach to a varied workload.

Please note the successful candidate must be able to start by 20 January 2020, at the latest.

The post-holder will be based at the Anna Freud Centre, 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH.

The Centre values diversity and aims to have a workforce that reflects this. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.

Please email Recruitment if you require assistance or experience difficulties in applying.
