What the job involves

We have an exciting opportunity for a Head of HR to join our small but busy HR team. This is a hands-on role and you will ensure we have the right people in place, doing the right things to achieve our strategic objectives and business plan. 

Working in a fast moving and fun environment, no two days will be the same. You will work across the organisation to develop and deliver our People Plan and organisational initiatives to support the business, ensure the delivery of effective and efficient HR systems and processes, as well as informing on operational and strategic decisions to support management, training and development across our organisation.

This role will see you working across all aspects of HR, including but not limited to: recruitment and retention, policy and organisational development, employee relations, pay and reward, change management, internal communications and performance management.

What we want from you

It goes without saying that you will be a member of the CIPD, but you will also need significant generalist HR management experience, able to manage multiple projects (both complex and operational), experience of handling a range of employee relations issues, an up-to-date knowledge of employment law and possess a facilitative approach to management and solving problems. You will need to be flexible, resourceful, fully appreciate the importance of putting people at the centre and have previous line management experience in leading an HR team and business partnering at a senior level.

In addition to the operational aspects of the role, you will also act as a catalyst for change; working closely with the senior people team and colleagues on the implementation of our people programme. We have set ourselves an ambitious aim to lead on a number of changes and improvements to our people processes, procedures and service delivery over the next eighteen months; you will have a key role to play in this.

Why work for us?

We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer.

Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.

The support we’ll provide

Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance, child care vouchers, and season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
