Head of People

We are excited to be recruiting a Head of People to lead the delivery of our People strategy.

As Head of People, your focus will be on keeping our people happy and productive. You will create our first people strategy, including in areas of succession planning, talent management, change management, organisational and performance management, training and development, and compensation.

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 provide line management to two post-holders: our Director of Ceremonies and our Head of Humanist Care, who are responsible for the delivery of our programmes of training celebrants and pastoral carers.

We are particularly keen to see applications from women, black, and minority ethnic candidates, as they are currently under-represented in our organisation.
