Head of Organisational Effectiveness and Development - Kingston upon Thames

£69,855 per annum hour for 36 hours per week based at County Hall, Penrhyn Road, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 2DN.

From flexible working to job sharing (where possible) we are committed to providing a healthy work life balance. A laptop and mobile will be supplied if applicable to your role. You will benefit from 24 days annual leave, rising to 28 days after 2 years' service, a generous local government salary related pension, as well as the option to join our car lease scheme.

We have high ambitions here at Surrey County Council – our aim is to be recognised, simply, as outstanding and we are in the midst of organisation wide transformation that will help us get there. The challenge is huge, the opportunities even greater.

We have completely re-designed and re-focused our HR&OD function, with a strong focus on modernising our organisation, culture and workforce – where individuals thrive and are able to perform at their very best. You will be encouraged to think differently, share your experience and create solutions that truly deliver change.

If the idea of being part of a team which is committed to making a real impact to public service, and to the lives of the residents of Surrey, then this opportunity is for you!

A key member of the HR&OD leadership team, you will play a critical role leading the development and delivery of a dynamic approach to organisational effectiveness and development.

You will blend performance, employee experience and wellbeing, change, organisational design, leadership development, talent management and OD to truly impact upon critical capabilities and performance council-wide.

As a senior leader in HR&OD, developing a cohesive and integrated function that effectively delves into and resolves crucial challenges across the people agenda will be a key outcome.

Educated to post graduate level in an HR&OD related field or equivalent level, you will have experience of leading in a complex environment. You will have extensive knowledge and ability to apply behavioural science, OD theory, L&D, change leadership and organisational design. Being curious, adaptable, creative and resilient is key.

As a leader, you will inspire, motivate and coach both individuals and the team to think and act differently, be confident and focus on best fit solutions. Your high business acumen, collaborative approach and business consulting skills will enable you to truly partner with the organisation.
