OD Consultant, Open to flexible working
Hackney Council is looking for someone with a passion for learning and development to join our Human Resources team. As Organisational Development Consultant you will create tailor made learning solutions which are cost effective and have a big impact.
Named as Council of the Last 20 Years at the 2016 LGC Awards, we believe great local government can transform places and change lives. Our award proves that Hackney leads the way across the UK. But of course, none of this is possible without great people. This role will play a significant part in the development of our organisation and the future of our borough.
Day to day you will deliver workshops, facilitate team events, create online learning programmes and lead on projects. You will ensure our workforce has development opportunities to support continual improvements for people who rely on our services.
You should have experience designing, delivering and evaluating a range of learning interventions. We need someone capable of developing our Learning Management System, able to design online learning modules and webinars.
To thrive in this role, you will need to be able to prioritise your own workload, be able to build rapport with others easily and work as a team. Ideally you will have a relevant qualification in Training, Coaching or similar. We welcome experience using personality profiling tools and other relevant qualifications that demonstrate a focus on personal and professional development.
Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.
When applying, there will be a number of questions relating to the post on the application form. It is essential that you complete the application questions, responding to each using examples of your skills, knowledge and experience. You are not required to submit a supporting statement or CV.
Closing date for applications: 31 October 2019
Interviews: 13/14 November 2019
We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.
Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
