As someone who can identify people’s skills and ability and who knows how to bring it out, you’ll have the opportunity to drive our people and our organisation towards new ways of thinking.
You'll have a good head for the operations side of things, but you'll have a motivated team to help you with that; we want you to facilitate, enable and guide our organisation to achieve its goals.

A natural leader, you’ll model a collaborative approach to work and will be able to identify and implement new ways of working, and seize unexpected opportunities.  You’ll have experience of successfully developing and delivering strategies encompassing L&D, employee relations, recruitment, volunteering and increasing diversity.

In return we offer a vibrant and friendly place to work, the chance to really make an impact and a competitive range of benefits including flexible hours, a great pension and excellent learning and development opportunities.
