Sally Evans

NSAT HR Manager

Before working in education, I always considered teaching as ‘a job’. However, from literally day one I realised how wrong I was! I quickly realised that actually, it is everyone’s ‘job’ to influence our children – they are our future. ‘Education is not preparation for life – Education is life itself…’

I have worked in education HR for approx. 15 years, but in a substantive role for the past 8 years, and am currently working towards a HR Management qualification. As HR Manager for the Trust, I support our people to work within our policies and procedures to ensure we do things right first time. My role is to support our schools and central team to achieve what they want to achieve whilst operating with the very best practices in mind and staying within the law. HR combines strategic visioning as well as the operational, day-to-day queries and casework.

I am a central point of contact for the HR staff within our schools for support and guidance with the day-to-day HR and payroll. I ensure the correct systems and procedures are in place and maintained both from a Trust and individual school’s perspective. I lead the HR Policies across the Trust, ensuring they are up to date and compliant with DfE regulations.

Key Areas of Responsibility:

  • Provide personal HR support and advice to all schools in our Trust
  • Ensure HR compliance within the Trust HR Policies
  • Lead transformational changes to central HR Services in NSAT
  • NSAT Recruitment and support where needed with school recruitment
  • Daily support and advice to HR staff in NSAT schools
  • Lead for Payroll and contact with Dataplan (Payroll provider)
  • NSAT contact for pension providers
  • Employee benefits
  • HR Competency monitoring across the Trust schools
  • Oversight of all disciplinary, capability and redundancy cases across the Trust
