We all share the same voice when it comes to changing the shape of the health policies of the future.

An opportunity to join our progressive People & OD team, as our Reward Analyst you'll use your positive attitude, your knowledge and experience of employee pay and benefits, and your ability to collect, analyse and produce management information of the highest quality to support the RCN to achieve its aims and objectives through its people.
Working as part of the People & OD team at either our Central London or Cardiff Gate offices - whichever suits you best - you'll help to ensure the organisation rewards its people fairly for the work they do, and encourages them to give their best every day, by overseeing all elements of our varied and highly competitive pay and benefits offer.
This will include close involvement with our pension schemes, operating and overseeing our job evaluation scheme and working closely with our broker around our Group Income Protection and Life Assurance schemes. You'll not only ensure the careful management of these activities, you'll also lead the development of new initiatives to ensure our reward and benefits package supports the recruitment and retention of staff whilst aligning with our organisational values and objectives.
Alongside your responsibilities for employee reward, you'll also lead our provision of workforce data to the organisation. Collating and making sense of data about people from various sources, including our HR database, you'll undertake routine and ad hoc reporting to support organisational decision making right up to our Executive Team and Council.
We're a small team and it's a job full of possibilities because alongside your core duties you'll have the opportunity to get involved in other pieces of work across the People & OD team to develop your knowledge and skills even further - helping you to realise your potential whilst making a real difference to the working lives of our people here at the RCN.
We expect you to look after our people. And we expect you to be rewarded for it. As well as a whole range of learning and development opportunities we can also offer you an impressive range of benefits. We have a highly competitive pay structure, as well as flexible working, and annual leave of up to 32 days.
Balancing work and life commitments is important to us as an organisation. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs. This role is available with weekly hours of between 28 and 35 to give some flexibility for the successful candidate to balance their employment with their commitments outside of work. As such, the duties will be adjusted to suit the chosen weekly hours of the appointed person.
What's more, all employees can ask for flexible working and when personal circumstances change we will work with you to find a smarter working solution that suits everyone. In fact, many of our employees enjoy home working, flexible working or compressed hours, enabling them to deliver results with minimum impact to their professional and personal commitments. We also offer generous Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave packages.
To join us you'll need to have experience of implementing and managing successful pay and reward initiatives and policies, running job evaluation schemes and being involved in workplace pensions. You'll have held effective relationships with external suppliers, and your IT skills will include advanced knowledge of Excel as well as using HR systems and databases.
Your attention to detail and ability to interpret and present information, including numerical data, in a variety of formats will be evident through your experience of producing reports for internal stakeholders up to the most senior level.
As a HR professional, you'll hold a strong knowledge of pay and reward practices and the legal considerations which underpin these, as well as a working knowledge of broader HR generalist processes and policies.
To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything's possible
