Fairfield Environment Trust (FET) is about to enter a new and exciting phase of development. Earlier this year our trading arm (Fairfield Recycling) won a new recycling contract that has seen us grow significantly. We have also completed a series of mergers and now our family of organisations includes activities as diverse as farming and building management.

With an increased workforce has come additional responsibilities and the resources to enable us to become one of Greater Manchester’s most impactful environmental charities. We are therefore seeking an individual to join a growing, youthful and dynamic team who are taking on the mantle of our retiring founders, offering a unique job opportunity to shape and grow our businesses and charitable work over the next decade.

The full-time FET Human Relationships (traditionally called Human Resources) Officer will be responsible for the day-to-day HR issues of the Fairfield Group which includes a charity and a number of social enterprises, working along side and supported by our finance team and our Business Development Manager.

The refined job title reflects our desire to nurture a team approach rather than a more traditional management structure, with a culture of continual learning and improvement.

As well as being supported by Fairfield’s Business Development Manager and our Finance Worker (who we are recruiting for at the same time) you will work alongside key staff at the Kindling Trust & Bridge 5 Mill.

Previously we have not had a dedicated member of staff committed to personnel issues and this post will prioritise the adoption of systems and procedures for supporting our growing staff numbers in progressive HR methods. Training and on-the-job learning will be a key part of this post in the first six months.

Your responsibilities will include: Record Keeping and Reporting; Staff Training; Health & Safety; recording Social Impacts and Key Performance Indicators; helping with Business Risk Management and Compliance of various employment regulations.
