The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults.

We are committed to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing, believing that high quality mental health services should be available for all who need them. We bring a distinctive contribution based on the importance we attach to social experience at all stages of people’s lives, and our focus on psychological and developmental approaches to the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of mental ill health

We contribute to the pool of ideas through our own research and development, but are also committed to bringing together the best ideas of the time, old and new, from inside and out, together with the most gifted and able professionals in our fields of endeavour. We aim to share our ideas and practice through as many routes as possible.

As a Trust we aim constantly to be evolving in nature and form in relation to the environment in which we work, to ensure that our contribution remains relevant.


Following the resignation of a very well regarded and experienced team member we are looking to recruit a successor.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a supportive and development HR team and gain exposure across a range of HR service areas.

As the successful post holder you will be responsible for all of the Trust’s transactional HR services including recruitment, an in-house bank, HR administration, payroll contract management, workforce information and learning and development. You will have a well developed customer service ethos ensuring that the services are delivered to the highest standard and within a set of agreed and developing key performance indicators.

With an established team you will provide leadership and instil our directorate ethos of developing talent and facilitating progression.

Through this role you will also be given scope and opportunity to collaborate with other London trusts through the sustainability and transformation partnership work taking place across north central London.

This is an exciting time to join the Tavistock and Portman. If you feel having read this advert, the job description and person specification you feel you’d be a great fit for this position then look forward to seeing your application.
