Job description

Are you looking for an interim HR leadership position within a national development charity?


We are thrilled to be supporting an incredible organisation who are working towards putting an end to people experiencing poverty in the UK. As the interim Head of HR, you will actively input into and oversee the implementation of the charity’s people strategy, supporting and equipping colleagues in achieving their vision. Given developments across the charity, there will be further appointments at this level towards the end of this tenure.


This position can be based at their offices in either Salisbury or London.


A key part of this position involves effectively overseeing and managing the application of consultative, transparent and representative people and governance policies which reflect the values of the organisation and promote the safety and wellbeing of staff and volunteers. Importantly, you will actively support the implementation of learning and talent development strategies which recognise and enhance exceptional subject matter expertise, first-class influencing skills and outstanding collaborative cross-team working. As the acting Head of HR you will also advise senior leadership divisions on legal compliance and risk mitigation, protecting the organisation’s interests and reputation.


Additionally, you will have the opportunity to have oversight of the development of their resourcing and reward strategies, ensuring the recruitment and retention of a diverse and inclusive staff team of values-led experts.


We are looking for an HR professional with well-defined and demonstrable experience of working at a senior level and ideally, in an interim capacity. It is crucial that you have the ability to enter a role and hit the ground running, while also being comfortable at adapting to an organisation as it experiences a progressive period of change. You will have a broad spectrum of experience to facilitate a generalist HR role while also being well-versed specifically around employee relations and organisational development. This position will also involve team management and therefore we are seeking somebody who can hold a leadership role while also being comfortable with operating in a hands on capacity.


A full list of responsibilities and requirements will be shared on successful receipt and review of your CV. To register your interest please attach your CV in Word Doc format.
