Job description

Your purpose

Voice 21 has grown rapidly, from 10 members of staff in 2019 to 60 now (and still growing). This has created a need for someone to lead Voice 21’s People and Culture function and ensure Voice 21 is a place which attracts, retains and develops diverse talent and continues to be a great place to work. To date, much of this work has been undertaken by our Senior Leadership Team (SLT), so this is a great opportunity for a strategic and proactive People and Culture leader to come in and formalise our culture while driving it forwards. We are grappling with a number of big people-related questions which the role holder would be expected to tackle:

● What does a high-performance, high-engagement culture look like in a primarily remote organisation? What is the link between a great culture and Voice 21 achieving its mission?

● What are the key drivers of diverse talent attraction, retention and development as we scale? How can we ensure that there is organisational visibility and drive continuous improvement?

● What information, training and support does everyone need to do their best work How should we provide this?

We are looking for a leader who knows what good looks like in relation to People & Culture, can think strategically in relation to how to apply this at Voice 21, and who is obsessed with how great organisations develop and maintain their cultures. You will have the experience and personality to inspire and influence others and drive organisation-wide culture change, working with the SLT. We are not necessarily looking for someone with extensive HR experience (although that would be a bonus). We are more interested in someone who has experience of leading and collaborating with people in growing organisations to effect change and bring the best out of people.

Your responsibilities

Strategy and leadership

● Work with the Director of Operations, the CEO, our SLT and Trustees to implement and refine Voice 21’s strategy and approach to attracting, supporting and developing diverse talent and building and embedding a purposeful, values-led culture.

● Develop Voice 21's approach to people and organisational development to support the aims and ambitions of our 5 year strategy.

● Represent V21 to senior stakeholders such as the V21 Board and at external events.

● Work with the SLT to plan talent development and growth for the future ensuring that our organisational design supports Voice 21’s strategy and that we have the right people in the right roles at the right time.

People Leadership

● Lead on embedding our culture and values across Voice 21 and ensuring that employee experience is consistent with these and identifying key levers across the organisation for us to increase engagement.

● Build and develop processes, approaches and policies across the employee experience to ensure that they reflect our values and are also scalable. This could be ensuring that the way we recruit and interview candidates is designed to identify the best and most diverse set of candidates, or that line managers have the training, resources and support to do their jobs and enable their teams. We want everything to be intentionally designed and linked back to our values and mission.

● Provide support, coaching, training and advice to managers and employees on all people issues and develop and implement creative and meaningful L&D initiatives for all employees.

● Act as the organisational lead for our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) journey to ensure that our commitment to diversity is at the heart of what we do.

● Develop our people analytics function to measure and improve the impact of our initiatives and provide the SLT with increased visibility over key measures of people and culture performance.

Team leadership and development

● Set and own your team’s goals, budgets and risks. Consistently influence the goals of other teams across Voice 21 and collaborate to enable their achievement.

● Direct line management responsibility for People Officer and dotted line management of Operations Coordinator. Integrate the team within Voice 21, fostering cross-departmental understanding, influence and collaboration.

● Support the Director of Operations as required in any duties which you could be reasonably expected to perform in line with this job description.
