Job description

Humanitarian health needs are growing. We are seeking a skilled HR professional with the experience to help recruit, vet, mobilise and engage our staff and members. Our medical teams respond to disasters around the world and we work with local emergency teams to build their resilience to future threats. Our work has never been more vital, with disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe. Can you help build a world prepared to help?

As our new HR Operations Manager you will play a key role in ensuring UK-Med is a great organisation to work and volunteer for. You will help make sure we have the right personnel both in our small core staff team (currently 40 people) and our Register of 1000 medical and non-medical international responders. You will bring broad generalist HR expertise, the ability to inspire, mentor and develop colleagues and a passion for working thoroughly at high pace.

Our ideal candidate will be passionate about both UK-Med’s humanitarian mission and the power of the HR function to support successful programming. You will be experienced and expert in HR and a true generalist with experience across the full spectrum of HR activity including recruitment, selection, pre-employment screening, performance management, employee relations and organisational development.

You will be comfortable working at pace and thrive on achieving challenging objectives and meeting rapidly changing demands. You will have a sound understanding of UK employment law, HR best practice and associated fields (e.g. equality, diversity and inclusion / safeguarding). Experience working internationally, particularly in an international development or humanitarian organisation, is an advantage but not essential.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work. UK-Med is a growing and developing organisation with a committed team of staff, volunteers and members. This role is a truly exciting opportunity to help develop our people to meet the challenges and opportunities our growth present.
