Are you looking to make an impact on some of the most challenging issues our society 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 design work?

Timewise is a multi award winning social enterprise and the UK’s leading expert and thought leader on workplace flexibility. We provide a range of research, consultancy and training services and programmes to build more inclusive workplaces that work for employers, individuals, the wider economy and society. And we run Timewise Jobs, the leading website for quality part time and flexible jobs.

We support businesses in all sectors to make a flexible working a success – from the NHS to Google, and Lloyds Banking Group.  We are a trusted advisor to Government, social funders and think tanks alike who come to us for our straight-talking evidence-based approach about what works when changing business practice on flexible working, and our work features regularly in the media. 

As Timewise continues to grow, accelerated by the spotlight COVID19 has shone on the business need for flexible working solutions, we are seeking an experienced and dynamic person for an exciting new role. You will help us to shape the work of our Innovation Unit, which focuses on stimulating wider systemic change for those facing specific inequalities in the workplace due to their need to work flexibly.

This is a fantastic opportunity to step into a new role at Timewise and work on innovative projects, research and partnerships with organisations across the public and private sector, policy makers and employers, helping shape the future of this impactful social business.

As our Head of Partnerships and Practice you will be responsible for overseeing a range of research, social change programmes and partnerships within our Innovation Unit to build new insight into how to drive scalable action by both employers and policy makers on creating fairer flexible work for all. You will be working closely with our co-founder and Development Director and alongside our team of consultants and associates.

This will be the ideal role for you if you share our passion for social change and driving workplace innovation. You will want to make a difference to how we design work in the UK and will have excellent relational and storytelling skills to inspire others to act and work with us. You’ll have some experience of service design perhaps honed from working within a think tank, social change organization or public sector body. You will have the ability to take a project from concept to delivery to dissemination. You will also be used to working autonomously and taking full accountability for the work you do. And as we are a relatively small organization with a big reach you will have both a willingness to be ‘hands-on’ as well as a strategic thinker.

You will find further details on the role in the attached job description. 

To apply, please send us your CV along with a covering letter highlighting your suitability to the role.
