Our client, a well-respected, national social care charity, is now looking to appoint an experienced HR professional to oversee the charities HR function, and provide strategic HR leadership.
The role will oversee a department of 25 staff, and oversee a workforce of circa 3300 people split between a number of companies forming part of the wider charity. The role will form part of the senior management team, and will enjoy close working relationships with regional Directors of each portfolio company. The role will report directly into the Group Board Operations Director.
Due to continued growth plans across the charity, our client would be looking for somebody with a high degree of career mobility and ambition, and would expect this candidate to be able to work for a rapidly expanding social care provider.
The ideal candidate will be working already within a senior HR Business Partner or Regional HR Management capacity at the moment for another well-respected Social Care provider, or already working as a HR Director for a smaller provider, and would naturally see this as the chance to be able to work at a more strategic HR level.
The ideal candidate will have good 'hands on' HR Leadership experience, with experience of working for a similar social care provider that supports service users with Learning Difficulties and Complex Care requirements, and will therefore be familiar with dealing with legal professionals supporting complex care cases, and release contract negotiations. In addition to this, candidates will have a proven track-record of carrying out and evaluating qualitative research methods, and helping a company to align themselves for strategic workforce improvement. The successful post holder will possess good man management and leadership skills, and will be an effective communicator.
The ideal candidate will be preferably degree qualified, although consideration will be given to those candidates with relevant industry HR Leadership experience.
