Being or becoming an employer can seem daunting but the key is to get the basics right. We want to free our parishes from the administrative and legislative burdens that employing staff can bring, understanding that it’s difficult to keep up with legislative changes and the ever-increasing complexities of being an employer.
We are happy to assist with your employment-related queries using our understanding of the parish context and are happy to come and visit you and undertake an employer health-check. In addition, we can help PCCs with recruitment advertising, application forms, interview guidelines, recruitment processing, contracts of employment, policies, procedures, handbooks and letters relating to employment matters; as well as how to get started, including finding a payroll solution and reviewing pension scheme obligations.
In the near future we are planning to run drop-in surgeries and workshops to handle HR related queries and concerns, delivering increased confidence and subject knowledge in a relevant and accessible way.
If you have any questions or queries please do get in touch with us at HR@cofebirmingham.com.
