Head of HR, 4 or 5 days per week. Job share applications will also be considered.
Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.
Our aim is that current and potential employees and volunteers actively choose and champion Plan International UK as a great place to work, both for the impact that we have on the lives of children and young people and for our performance, culture and working environment. We achieve this through a partnership approach, adding value through working closely with our colleagues on strategic and operational HR and providing expertise in specific areas such as recruitment, learning and development and reward management.
We’re recruiting a Head of HR to lead our approach, ensuring we have the right structure and policies in place along with engaged employees and volunteers with the skills and resources to deliver our strategy.
In the role, you will
- work with the Senior Management Team to develop people focussed strategies and business plans that consider the HR implications of any proposals
- lead our approach to pay and reward, recruitment and development
- support effective leadership and organisational development
- develop the use of evidence and analysis to provide insight into employee engagement
- coach and support the HR team to develop professionally
You will also lead on safeguarding, ensuring that the right measures are in place to prevent harm to the children and young people connected with our work.
You will bring extensive experience in an HR leadership role including managing an HR team with a business partnering approach and supporting organisational change, coupled with Chartered MCIPD status. Able to create positive relationships with stakeholders at all levels within the organisation, you will support, challenge and build consensus as needed.
Although no previous experience in safeguarding is required, you will need to show awareness of the factors which create a safe environment for children and young people and a commitment to act as our safeguarding focal point.
