Head of People and Culture
Comic Relief is becoming a creative agency for social change, an agency that is proud to be bold, confident and even edgy. We want to harness creativity to better effect, value our brands, embrace talent, connect globally and engage many more people in our mission.
As one of the nation's most loved brands, Comic Relief is at an exciting and transformational stage in its development.
Whilst super serving our existing audience with refreshed comedy content and entertaining ways to give and participate through our flagship events of Red Nose Day and Sport Relief, we are looking to develop innovative ways to engage new and existing audiences and attract the next generation to care, buy, do and donate. It's not all about the money – it is also about the impact we're having and the changes we are making to people's lives.
As Head of People and Culture you will be a driving force in ensuring Comic Relief is a great place to work. You will be a natural relationship builder, supporting our leaders to take all aspects of people management to the next level. We are building a diverse workforce with a flexible engagement model (permanent employees, temporary, freelancers) and we want our internal talent to feel valued, trusted, understood and engaged all of the time. We have just come out of a transformation programme and, whilst our people are excited about the future, there is plenty of work still to be done in developing the right culture.
Curiosity, flexibility and a can-do attitude are essential qualities for this role. You will bring an engaging and optimistic approach as well as proven experience of delivering operational excellence in HR services.
Reporting to the Executive Director of Finance and Resources, you will be responsible for a team of six (currently) and will work with all parts of the organisation, including our CEO and Trustees.
