Job description

Now is an exciting time to lead Humanists UK’s growing People Team. Having recently embarked on implementing Humanists UK’s first People Strategy, we want to unite our vibrant community of volunteers, staff, and consultants under one ‘People’ umbrella. The coming years will see us focus on modernising our approach to HR,  including how we recruit and retain the best people; establish a culture of continuous development; develop future-focused HR policy and practice; continue our positive progress on diversity and inclusion initiatives; and build happy, engaged teams.

As Head of People, your focus will be on keeping our people happy and productive. You will lead initiatives associated with our people strategy, including in areas of succession planning, talent management, inclusivity, change management, organisational and performance management, training and development, and compensation. You will lead our newly formed People Team to embed a professional, modernised HR function to serve our community of over 1000 personnel.

You will be a part of the senior leadership of Humanists UK, reporting directly to the Chief Executive, and will provide strategic leadership by articulating HR needs and plans to the executive management team.

You will lead our HR function, providing line management to a People Team consisting of our People Advisor (Staff & Consultants), People Officer (Volunteers), and the fixed-term Project Manager who supports the development of our local volunteers in communities.

You will also line manage our Head of Humanist Care, who is responsible for the training and accreditation of our pastoral carers.

Your work on our equality, diversity, and inclusion priorities will be supported by a volunteer Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Group, drawn from across our personnel and charged with setting and achieving our ambitions in that area of our work.

Completed forms should be returned electronically by email with the subject ‘Head of People” to by 17:00 on Thursday 25 August. Please note CVs and cover letters are not accepted. We reserve the right to interview suitable candidates on a rolling basis.
