Head of People & Organisational Development
This is an outstanding opportunity for an exceptional individual to join the Institute of Physics to take strategic responsibility for the development of our people and deliver a modern, diverse and “open space” environment that reflects our cultures and values at an exciting time of significant organisational and cultural change and transition.
The Institute of Physics (IOP) is a leading scientific society, with a membership ranging from students to those at the top of their fields in academia, business, education and government. Our purpose is to gather, inspire, guide, represent and celebrate all who share a passion for physics. And, in our role as a charity, we’re here to ensure that physics delivers on its exceptional potential to benefit society. Our programmes range from driving the excellence of physics teaching in our schools to programmes that will inspire the public about the role physics has in our lives. The IOP has been driving significant changes to its culture, working environment and people structure to drive the Institute’s ambitious strategy to challenge the traditional concept of Learned Society and Professional Body to become a modern, innovative and outward facing organisation which can advance physics for the benefit of all.
We are seeking an exceptional HR, Change or OD professional to play a key part on the Executive and Programme Boards (SMT), to drive our people and OD strategy, leading and embedding business critical culture change and enabling us to think differently about how we reflect our culture and values in our team of 160 staff based in London and across the devolved administrations. Our aim is to become recognised as an exemplar employer.
An inspiring leader, you will drive a culture of collaboration and high performance, where a valued workforce is motivated, supported and developed to deliver exceptional services to our members. Personal qualities are equally important and outstanding communication skills, the ability to think innovatively and challenge the status quo are essential. You will bring powerful credentials in motivating teams, the ability to lead a cross functional group of HR, Facilities and IT professionals, the credibility to inﬂuence others to deliver business change and will be able to combine a strategic overview with first class operational experience. You will be an experienced HR, OD or Business Change professional with a demonstrable track record in the development and delivery of organisational development strategy in line with business objectives.
