Job description

We are Bloodwise, and we want to change the world for all blood cancer patients. Every year we stop more people dying of blood cancer and our researchers are even working to stop people developing blood cancer in the first place. 

We're the UK's specialist blood cancer charity and our vision is clear: we’re here to beat blood cancer and we’ve been working to do this since 1960.

Following a period of transition our new CEO joined in September 2017 and together we have begun the process of exploring the culture and operational approaches that we will need to deliver our strategic objectives. 

To create the necessary platform to drive and sustain this transformation we have brought together our Data & CRM, HR & OD, ICT and Continuous Improvement Teams under a new Organisational Effectiveness Directorate.  The Director of Organisational Effectiveness joined Bloodwise at the end of March 2018 and we are seeking an exceptional candidate to lead the HR and OD team as our Head of HR & OD.

This challenging role requires someone who will be able to influence, negotiate and challenge positively and effectively; building excellent relationships at all levels and bringing colleagues with them through the process of change.

We are seeking a highly experienced HR / OD professional who is able to operate at a strategic and operational level to deliver a highly performing HR service that is aligned to the business.  Experience of leading successful teams and managing organisational change is essential. The successful candidate will have a pragmatic approach, understand the importance of culture in driving and sustaining performance and have a superior attention to detail.  In return you will have the opportunity to have a significant impact on the effective performance of a growing organisation and of delivering life changing results for those whom we serve. We welcome applicants from a range of sectors with demonstrable experience of delivering high quality, HR and OD services.

If you have the necessary skills and experience we are looking for applications are now being accepted via our website.

Applications are to include a current cv and cover letter outlining your background and experience. 

The closing date of this exciting role is:

9am on Monday 21 October 2019

Join us on our journey to beat blood cancer!

*Please note applications will be shortlisted on receipt and if a successful candidate is found

we may bring forward the closing date of this role at our discretion*
