Are you looking to make an impact on some of the most challenging issues our workforce faces in a post-pandemic world? Do you want to work in an environment where you have the opportunity to contribute to solving major societal questions that shape the future of how we work and how we live? Where you have the opportunity to have direct impact on our clients and their performance and drive social impact. 

As Timewise moves into its next phase of growth, accelerated by the spotlight COVID19 has shone on the business need for flexible working solutions, it is looking for an experienced OD/HR consultant with strong technical knowledge to work at a senior level as part of our consultancy team, leading innovative client projects and supporting team and business development.

Purpose of the role

As Lead Principal Consultant, you will be responsible for development and delivery of our work across a range of sectors.

You will work alongside our Consultancy Director (who leads our consultancy service and capabilities across the Timewise social business) and Consultancy Business Manager  (who oversees the operational running of the unit), as a senior member of the consulting team.

Whilst you may not have direct flexible working project experience, you should be able to demonstrate a level of technical expertise in organisation development and design, and an understanding of the key issues facing employers  post-pandemic (e.g. mental health and wellbeing, hybrid working, retention and attraction, diversity and inclusion).  You will contribute to thought leadership and development of our consultancy service and should demonstrate a passion for continuing personal development and wide reading around the future of work.

This is a fantastic opportunity where there is potential to lead innovative and high profile projects which will really make a difference to organisations and workers of all types, across the UK.

You will also be used to working autonomously and taking full accountability for the work you do.
