Human resources

The aim of the HR portfolio group is to influence NOMS HR strategies and polices; to support the development of HR strategy and practice amongst the Trusts and to provide a forum for the employers; NOMS and the Executive to explore their common agenda.

Through a Management Advice Forum (MAF), chaired by the PCAs  HR portfolio lead, HR professionals from across the PCA membership take a role in:

  • facilitating effective communication with NOMS and the Probation Association (PA)
  • ensuring arrangements are in place for emergency comment and advice to be given to the wider membership, NOMS and the PA
  • attending meetings to represent the PCA
  • considering issues that require a national approach and  / or consistency
  • considering the impact of national policies on local delivery and providing a source of advice and opinion for the membership
  • bringing an informed operational perspective to the modernisation agenda
  • consulting with other local HR leads in Trusts to ensure that the whole of the membership are briefed on issues and have an opportunity to be involved in discussions and planning
