The North East Autism Society is the leading voice concerning Autism and neuro-diversity in the North of England. Established over 30 years ago, we have a trusted reputation of providing a range of quality, specialist services for children, young people and adults leading happy, fulfilling and independent lives. With over 700 staff in more than 40 locations in the North East, we believe joining our NEAS family will not only provide you with a challenging and rewarding role but will help bring real life change for the incredible people we work with.

We are looking to recruit a HR Advisor to provide pro-active generalist HR support services to Senior Managers, Managers and employees of the Society. This role will allow an individual a high degree of autonomy to provide a service to the Society from an operational standpoint. You must be strong at building relationships within this challenging but supported environment. The successful candidate will report to the Head of HR and will become involved in all aspects of human resources, including discipline and grievance, absence and performance management, recruitment and selection and other HR related issues. The successful candidate will also be required to contribute to the development and/or review of policies and procedures and to liaise with Trade Unions.

The successful candidate must be an associate member of the CIPD with substantial experience working within a busy HR function. They must be a team player, highly organised and be passionate about HR. This position will be based at our Head Office in Chester-Le-Street, County Durham, although the post holder will be required to travel to different locations across the North East area. It is therefore essential that they hold a UK driving licence and have access to own transport.

In return we offer excellent terms and conditions. Joining our NEAS team will mean:
  • Working in a positive, friendly, rewarding environment, building your experience and career.
  • Dedicated support from our Learning and Development department who will work alongside you and your new line manager to enhance your career with our specialist training programmes. This is just the start of your new career!
  • Other benefits including childcare vouchers, bike to work scheme, pension contributions, an annual staff awards evening recognising and rewarding staff achievements, and much sought-after discounted rates at our family fun days and events scheduled across the year.
  • Having a hands-on role, valuing and supporting people. If you thrive on helping others, knowing everything you do is contributing to lives being changed then this could be the role for you.
