Head of People Services, enableNY - Permanent opportunity 

Salary: LS2 £66,603 - £75,892

 Location: HQ Northallerton, with flexibility to work from home and other locations

EnableNY was announced in April 2019 and took over the management of enabling services to North Yorkshire Police (NYP), North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Services (NYFRS) and the Office of Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (OPFCC) in April 2020. The vision is for a more strategic transformation of police and fire collaboration that can deliver genuine change, focussing on outcomes for the public rather than organisational sovereignty.

To align with this vision, the People Services Function was re-designed, and a new operating

model and team structure were implemented. This has seen a shift from a traditional HR service delivery model to a unified Strategic Partner model, serving all three clients, which focus on proactive people solutions, continuous service improvement and measurable outcomes.

We now have an incredible opportunity for a Head of People Services who will continue to embed the new operating model and to deliver our People Services vision and Strategic Aims.  You will lead a talented team of people across all service areas including, People Operations; People Partnering; Talent & Development and Health & Wellbeing. 

 Key Responsibilities:

  • Operating in an agile environment you will lead, manage and continue to increase engagement across the people services function, driving a proactive and customer focused people service that delivers high performance standards.
  •  Embedding the enableNY model to enhance collaborative working across NYP and NYFRS.
  • Leading ongoing people organisational change initiatives across the Service to drive continuous improvement.
  • Providing strategic advice and guidance to Police and Fire and Rescue senior leadership teams and the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to support all planning and decision making.
  • Leading on complex employee relations matters, providing strategic direction to resolve people issues.
  • Driving the development and implementation of new policies and operating procedures, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.
  • Working closely with the Staff Association and Trade Unions to build strong and effective working relationships to enable all parties to achieve organisational aims.
  • Managing the budget and resources within the People Services function, continually assessing effective use of public money and looking at ways to generate efficiencies and potential income.

 What you will bring to the role:

  • A strategic leader with experience and expertise across all people, culture and organisational change.
  •   You will be highly motivated with excellent communication and organisation skills which allows you to establish and maintain key stakeholder relationships at all levels within a complex operating environment.
  • A values led, resilient leader who is adept at leading people through cultural change while developing a high-performing team.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of handling complex employee relations and industrial relations within a Trade Unionised environment.
  • Through your proactive approach you will quickly build your credibility allowing you to influence and inspire those around you.
  •  It is highly likely that the successful candidate will be educated to degree level (or equivalent), with a proven track record in leading a People Service provision in a large, complex and dynamic organisation.
