ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty. Our dedicated local staff are changing the world with women and girls. We are ending violence and fighting poverty so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced, progressive people professional to have a real impact on the way we work at ActionAid UK. You will provide effective interim leadership and management of the People and Culture team during a period of significant change. Working closely with the leadership team, particularly the interim director of OD and transformation, and key stakeholder groups across the charity you will review and develop our people policies, procedures and practice making sure that they are underpinned by our feminist principles and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion especially our ambition to be an anti-racist organisation. You will manage and support the people and culture team to provide effective HR, learning and development and talent acquisition partnering, advice and guidance to people managers across the organisation so that they and their teams are equipped and supported to deliver organisational priorities.

Important will be your ability to lead through change, bring people with you drive and to continue to drive engagement and continuous improvement.

With an impressive record of strategy development and operational improvement in a senior HR or organisational development role, you are skilled at effectively using data to inform decision making. You can make sound financial decisions and control budgets too. You should be comfortable in identifying and developing the behaviours that are demanded of effective leaders, you will also have experience of policy and procedures development together with expertise in working with and negotiating with Trade Unions.

ActionAid is committed to driving improvement through digital channels, tools and ways of working.  We will ensure that we provide the technology and the training to enable all staff to perform their roles to the best of their abilities. In return, we ask that all staff are committed to continually improving their digital skills and knowledge within the working environment. Our recruitment processes will evaluate the digital skills of all applicants. 

ActionAid is committed to supporting flexible working. If you would like to discuss flexible working options, including the possibility of a job share for this role, there will be space to do so during the interview process.

We are committed to continually improving the diversity of our workforce and therefore encourage applications from people of colour, the LGBTQI+ community, the trans community, and those with a disability.
