As we implement our COVID Recovery Roadmap and deploy our 2021-2026 Strategic Plan, we seek a senior HR/OD professional aligned with our ambition, who is passionate about our goals and capable of leading the strategic delivery of our operational plans. Reporting to the CEO, the Director of People will lead a programme of HR/OD and change management that will support the organisation for the next phase of its evolution, putting our staff and those who use our service at the heart of what we do.

The successful candidate will play a significant role in leading our change management and workforce planning response through the ongoing pandemic and will contribute to the deployment and revision of our plan as we address the financial implications that arise from the Covid-19 situation.
