This is my first post; I'm just starting out on my L5 in HRM in Nottingham, my welcome webinar was yesterday!
I will be leaving my current role and moving into another role in the education sector, setting up an HR Function in an academy trust where there currently are six admins (one per academy) doing HR administration as a very small part of their role, alongside a retained solicitor. The plan will be to begin to centralise the function, beginning with just myself working alone and (hopefully) as the business grows and work loads increase, creating a team underneath me.
The point of my creating this discussion is just to ask whether anyone has any tips or ideas as to how I can begin to establish HR in a business where there has been nothing beforehand. What would you suggest my first steps within 3, 6, 12 months be?
Thanks for your help!
