Senior Head of Human Resources – Service Delivery

University of Leeds

Ref. CSHRS1053

Salary: Competitive


The University of Leeds was established in 1904 and is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK, renowned globally for the quality of teaching and research.

The University strives to achieve academic excellence within an ethical framework informed by values of integrity, equality and inclusion, community and professionalism.

The new role of Senior Head of Human Resources – Service Delivery will be primarily focused on identifying, developing and delivering a strategic HR service which embraces agility whilst delivering consistency.

This activity is essential to pursuing two of our key Corporate aims: -

  • To ensure that all our employees experience a consistent, quality service and employment relationship;
  • To move to a standard approach to our operational activities ahead of implementing new processes and systems as part of a wider corporate processes & systems (CP&S) programme.

The successful candidate will provide strategic leadership and structured development to the four Heads of HR who lead the faculty/service HR ‘hub’ teams.

This is therefore an exciting time to be joining the University and to be leading an area of activity that will be highly influential in creating an environment that will facilitate the delivery of a high performing organisation, where staff at every level have both the desire and capability to support our ambitions.

The HR team is proud of its reputation and contribution, and work together in a supportive and constructive manner. The team is keen to welcome a new colleague to provide leadership and direction, and to support the development of a consistent approach to our HR Service activity.  This will help us ensure that the credibility of the HR function remains high, and that our partnership approach with academic and service leaders is supportive, constructive and forward looking.
