This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We have much to be proud of in our one hundred years of history, but we know that to remain vibrant and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.
We’ve begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people at the heart of our organisation. We’re on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week.
Want to join a professional and collaborative HR team and lead on organisational design initiatives to support our transformation journey? In this generalist HR role, you’ll work in partnership with our senior management team to deliver a strategic and operational HR service to support our refreshed people strategy. You’ll be a key player in culture change to facilitate one team of volunteers and staff. You have a track record in providing a strategic generalist HR service and HR business partnering, to include organisational design. With strong interpersonal skills you enjoy influencing and negotiating with a variety of stakeholders, and are competent presenting to boards / directors on complex or controversial business. You have strong written communication skills. We look forward to you joining our team.
Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
We’re committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.
