We are looking for someone to join our team as a HR Business Partner, which is a role within the Workforce and Organisational Development function of the Trust, responsible for supporting the clinical divisions and directly working alongside our clinical and operational managers to contribute to the delivery of the Trust’s objectives and strategy.
