Assistant People and OD Partner

Organisation: The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Salary: £28201

Location: RBGE, Inverleith Row

Permanent post, based in Edinburgh working on a hybrid basis
30 hours per week
Starting salary £28.2k pro rata, plus generous holiday entitlement, civil service pension and other benefits

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is one of the world’s leading scientific botanic gardens, holding knowledge gained over our 350 year history that benefits the world. All known life depends on plants and fungi, and it is our mission to explore, conserve and explain the world of plants for a better future. Our four Scottish gardens – Benmore, Dawyck, Logan and ‘The Botanics’ in Edinburgh – attract over a million visitors every year. Together, these gardens comprise one of the richest plant collections on earth.

We have an exciting opportunity for an Assistant People & OD Partner to join our small but dynamic People & OD team. The role is fundamentally administrative in nature, but will also involve taking on some of the more straightforward people-related activities the team are involved in – so as well as being the main contact for all our recruitment, training and volunteer processes, amongst others, you’ll also be speaking to line managers about their recruitment needs, helping them with attendance and performance management, and generally getting involved in all people-related activities. The post would suit someone with strong administrative skills who has started or is keen to start a career in HR.

We’re happy to be very flexible around weekly working schedules to enable as wide a range of candidates to apply as possible.

To apply please email with:
• your CV
• a covering letter outlining the skills, knowledge and experience you’d bring to the post
• a completed equal opportunities questionnaire

Closing date: 12pm GMT on 20 March 2023
