Are you a wellbeing expert? Do you have an understanding of the issues facing people with mental and physical problems in the workplace?
We're recruiting for a Wellbeing Engagement Manager to join us at the BHF and play a leading role in the continual improvement and promotion of the BHF's internal wellbeing programme, which enable our people to bring their 'whole-self' to work and feel supported to live a healthy and happy life both at home and at work.
About the role
You'll lead on the design, develop and roll out of strategies, policies and guidelines which will enable a whole organisation approach to wellbeing that embraces mental and physical health, workplace (work and physical environment) and health risk factors, leadership and a culture underpinned and informed by a solid framework of engagement and insight.
We want to achieve excellence in all that we do, including being a healthy and inclusive place to work and volunteer. With a genuine passion for this subject and in making a real difference, you'll be the one to take our wellbeing strategy to the next level and the driving force behind its continued evolution and success.
We are a leading organisation with a reputation hard-earned by the dedication of our people. People who are brave, informed, compassionate and driven. By living our values, we will make sure we never take this reputation for granted.
The role offers great opportunity for personal growth and professional stretch, as we continue to push our own boundaries in the wellbeing and engagement sphere to ensure we give our people the best possible support so they feel truly able to bring their 'whole-self' to us.
You'll have previous experience of introducing/managing strategies that improve the wellbeing of staff in a complex setting as well as experience in collating and analysing insight and data, able to use this for practical solutions and programme development.
With a proven track record of translating strategic thinking into practical and deliverable activity you'll have experience of programme and project management in a fast paced environment including planning, developing, implementing, monitoring, evaluating and reporting on performance.
To succeed in this role you'll have the following skills and experience:
* Excellent communication skills, written and verbal, able to be empathetic and understanding, approaching sensitive subjects with discretion, tact and diplomacy
* Able to establish effective relationships with a wide variety of internal audiences across different operational disciplines in geographically dispersed locations
* A visible role model with demonstrable transformational leadership qualities
* Excellent planning and organisation skills able to lead and manage a complex programme consisting of multiple work streams, stakeholders and significant amounts of data moving at a significant constant pace
* Excellent self-management skills working independently, using own initiative and being flexible and adaptable including making decision making skills and confidence in making operational decisions
We are looking for candidates with a keen interest in the third sector and enthusiasm for health promotion work. You'll be involved in developing a truly exceptional programme promoting health and wellbeing. If you are up for the challenge and eager to be part of an exciting new BHF start up, we'd love to hear from you.
At the BHF we actively support our people in their career development and achieving their potential. Comprehensive technical training and certification will be available, as well as extensive learning and personal development opportunities. We enthusiastically support flexible working and positive, active lifestyles with activities from softball, yoga, bake-offs and many more.
When you work at the British Heart Foundation, you become a part of medical history. Part of a world leading organisation that has played a role in decades of life saving breakthroughs, from heart transplants and pacemakers to stents and clot busting drugs. And we're not about to stop any time soon. We are here to beat heartbreak forever. To stop heart and circulatory diseases devastating families. And if you want to help us get there sooner, you could be the Wellbeing Engagement Manager we need.
