Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint a People Officer who will join the Trust at an exciting time, following an expansion of the People function within the Trust. The People Officer will support the Trust People Manager in the provision of a high quality, efficient People service for the Trust. This is a customer focused role. You will need to be self-motivated and experienced to provide effective support across the People function with particular focus on People compliance and quality assurance, primarily responsible for ensuring all staff are compliant in regard to DfES guidelines and Trust internal policies.

At all times, you will ensure proficiency in the core business operations of the Trust, enabling students learning to remain at the centre of everything we do. As a key member of the support team, you will work collaboratively with colleagues to achieve the Trust’s objectives.

The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.

The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions.

On 10 May 1922, Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales.

The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michaelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.

If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.
