Head of People and Culture
Deadline: 9am, Monday 6th December, 2021
The Bromley by Bow Centre is a vibrant community centre in the heart of Tower Hamlets. The Centre is a charity with a national and international reputation for its innovative work in inspiring and empowering the people from the local community, using a unique model of integration. It supports over 2,000 people each month.
Our new Head of People and Culture will provide strategic leadership across the Centre in areas including staff wellbeing, human resources, training and development and internal communications. We understand that our people – our staff as well as our volunteers – are at the core of what we do. The role of Head of People and Culture is not about owning and delivering our People and Culture Strategy in isolation – we believe that is with all of us, across the Centre. Rather, it is about providing the continued impetus for improvement as well as ensuring that our processes, procedures and general ways of working support us on our journey.
You will be a seasoned HR professional, ideally within the charity or not for profit sector with a CIPD qualification. You will have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, and able to comfortably operate and lead in a multicultural and multi-stakeholder community organisation. As a natural relationship builder, you will be able to work collaboratively, balancing operational and strategic responsibilities – rolling up your sleeves will be something you’re used to but comfortable with. Experience of change management and improving organisational Diversity and Inclusion is a must.
As an organisation, we are committed to taking equality, diversity and inclusion into account in everything we do. We are looking to further enhance the diversity in our team, especially at a more senior level, and as such would particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, people from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds, people from the LGBTQ+ community, and people from different social- economic and educational backgrounds.
