Head of Business Partnering and Employment Practice - Kingston Upon Thames

£69,855 per annum 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 our new business partnering and employment practice function.

You will blend strategic business partnering, people consultancy, reward, policy, diversity and inclusion to develop coherent and cohesive approaches to drive organisational performance and transformational change.

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 Chartered F/MCIPD or equivalent experience, you will have experience of leading in a complex environment. You will have extensive experience of leading and developing a modern, business focussed people practice directly aligned to organisational direction, culture and employee experience.

 Being curious, adaptable, creative and resilient is key. As a leader, you will inspire, motivate and coach both individuals and the wider team to think and act differently, be confident and focus on best fit solutions.

 You will use your expertise and credibility to build relationships and influence at all levels to help enable people initiatives that build a truly great workforce.
