People Operations Manager

This is a new role within FFI, taking over responsibility for the development and delivery of our people processes, systems and administration, ensuring that they are fully fit for purpose. You will be joining a highly supportive and friendly People Team, committed to working together collaboratively to provide a high quality and responsive service to the organisation.

Although initially your main focus will be our UK people operations, you will also engage with our country offices around the world, developing an understanding of their people operations and working with them towards maximising efficiency across the organisation.

The role is varied and includes optimising people processes, leading on the implementation of a new HRIS, ensuring a high-quality information and reporting service to internal stakeholders, overseeing UK and international payroll and benefits administration, and working on global people projects and initiatives.

You will have substantial experience developing, implementing and managing people systems, processes and administration relating to all stages of the employee life-cycle. You will be experienced in HRIS management and optimisation, mapping and streamlining processes, developing, running and analysing reports to aid decision-making and working with providers to solve technical issues. Experience in implementing a new HRIS would be an advantage.

You will have a methodical and rigorous approach to work and a meticulous attention to detail. Excellent numeracy and data analysis skills are essential, as is knowledge of data protection legislation and relevant UK employment and immigration law.

You will enjoy collaborating and consulting with others to understand the needs of our stakeholders as we strive for continuous improvement and your excellent interpersonal and communication skills will enable you to build positive, productive working relationships with colleagues at all levels across FFI.  Fluency in spoken and written English is essential.

If you meet these requirements and are looking for a new challenge we’d love to hear from you.  You will be joining an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
