  • Human Resources and Learning Associate

    We’re looking for someone to join our small Human Resources and Learning Team at Leeds Playhouse as an HR&L Associate. The Playhouse is a complex, busy organisation which is determined to make a difference. You can read more about us on our “Who we are” page of our website, and you might want to watch the video on our “About Us” page, too (it’s subtitled).

    With so much going on no two days in the HR&L team are the same, although there is some routine and process, with things like payroll and recruitment to deal with. This is a role where you can hit the ground running, or you can develop in role. You’ll need to do quite a bit of administrative work at the beginning, but you will pick up areas of work where you have more discretion and autonomy. You’ll be working directly for Chris, the Director of Human Resources and Learning who will help you learn how the Playhouse works, and also with your professional development.

    This post might be suitable for someone who is working at the Associate level of the CIPD profession map. Equally, this could be a first HR&L role for someone who is an experienced team player, who is used to working in a complex environment, and who can demonstrate that they are interested in organisations, processes and people.

    We’re looking for a wide range of applicants, whether you’ve worked in Human Resources (or any of its off-shoots) before or not. We’re more interested in what you can do and where you apply yourself, than what specific jobs you’ve had before, or whether you have specific qualifications.

    If you’re interested, but aren’t sure if your experience is a good fit, or want to know more about the Playhouse or the job before applying, please give us a call on 0113 213 7238 or email and we can set up a time for a quick phone call or a chat on site here at the Playhouse. We’re particularly keen to talk to people who might not already have a relationship with the Playhouse, or may not have previously thought about a career in Human Resources. You don’t have to have a chat to get shortlisted, and having a chat beforehand won’t count against you either.

    How to apply

    To apply for this role, you will need to complete an online application and diversity monitoring form below. Please read through the guidance notes and job description before you start the application form:

    The deadline for receipt of applications is 9 a.m. on 26 March 2020.

    If shortlisted for an interview you will hear from us by 30 March.

    Interviews will be held at Leeds Playhouse on 7 and/or 8 April.
