We are looking for ambitious people with a passion for enabling exceptional individuals to join our unique people-first business. 

Our team’s purpose is to both cultivate and optimise our exceptional talent and build a values driven, highly effective and healthy organisation and culture; an organisation where world-class research and creativity flourish, and doing great work that contributes to our mission is everyone’s number one focus. 

This is the dream role for someone who thrives in fast paced, changeable environments, and is looking to define their career within a company that could change the world. 

About Us

At DeepMind, we've created a unique environment for long-term ambitious research to flourish in. Our world-class interdisciplinary team combines the best techniques from deep learning, reinforcement learning and systems neuroscience to build powerful general-purpose learning algorithms. We have already made a number of high profile breakthroughs towards general AI, and we now have all the ingredients in place to make further significant progress over the coming years. We are looking for highly talented and driven individuals who want to be part of an exceptional team, in an inspiring and collaborative environment, working on ground-breaking technology with potentially extraordinary impact. 

About You 

  • You have some experience leading and inspiring a team of People professionals. You are a great manager and coach, you have a few examples of developing others. 
  • You gained some of your experience in fast-paced, technical environments, preferably with some international exposure and enjoy the opportunities of working as part of a diverse, globally minded team. 
  • You are comfortable with ambiguity and enjoy changeable environments. You can use your experience to implement creative and innovative people focussed practices and make sound, well thought through decisions, which drive business performance.

  • You are able to act with confidence in a high performance culture, instilling trust in everyone you interact with, delivering well thought through solutions. 
  • You are extremely organised and used to juggling many different priorities, whilst at the same time ensuring impeccable attention to detail. You’re proactive and see what needs to be done - no task is too big or too small. 
  • You are an excellent communicator adept at influencing and driving positive change. You share information and understand that succeed or fail, we do so as a team.
  • You are looking for the career defining role and are ready to commit to this long term mission. The chance to be a key part of something extraordinary, the opportunity to make a real difference. 

The Role

You will need to use your previous experience and show initiative in order to fully carve out your contribution in this role. You will be mentored and managed by the People Experience  Lead and you will manage a growing team of four. You will work closely with the wider People & Culture team.
