  • Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people?
  • Do you want to be a part of a values led, driven and innovative team developing the UK’s first secure school?

Due to an internal promotion an exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced HR Officer or equivalent, to join the Oasis Restore People Services and Development Team as a Senior HR Officer. You will play a key role in helping to create an innovative, inclusive and therapeutic environment for staff and children alike. Initially the postholder will largely play a hands-on role in a marketing, recruitment, onboarding and induction program as well as helping to set up various systems, policies and processes including payroll, to get the school operational and then as it becomes more established will provide a broader, professional HR service that is in alignment with our ethos, values, best practise and employment law.


The role and what we are looking for We are looking for an experienced HR generalist who is self-motivated, resilient, resourceful and is passionate about inclusion. You will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to help build a completely new organisation that has not been tried before in the UK and positively change the lives of both staff and disadvantage children in custody or on remand alike.

In your role as Senior HR Officer you will be responsible for helping us to shape and deliver the provision of a proactive customer focused service which supports the management of the whole employee life cycle including, but not limited to, recruitment and selection, onboarding, training and development, payroll & pensions, data analytics, performance management, employee relations and casework, and in house HR projects; ensuring compliance with our Ethos, employment legislation, safeguarding standards and company policies. We don’t expect you to do this alone.

You will be guided and supported by the PSD team. You will also be able to work in collaboration with other HR teams within the wider Oasis family who link up to discuss ideas and share best practice.
