HR Director – Not for Profit.

Our client has retained us to undertake a search for an accomplished individual to take charge of the HR function at this small, but extremely successful charitable organisation.

Although your primary function will be to lead and manage the HR function, we have been briefed to identify an individual who is commercially aware, and who will also be able to work collaboratively with other heads of department across all other areas of the business. You will very much be an integral and essential part of the business, and your influence will be as far reaching as it will be valuable. This role offers a very real opportunity to make a significant contribution, helping to grow and develop an already successful business, with aspirations for further growth in the future.

Your primary function will be to formulate and implement policy relating to all aspects of the HR and employment function, and you will be supported by a team of three experienced and capable colleagues covering the areas of payroll, recruitment and training and development. Although supported  by a team of three, we are looking for a hands on manager who can lead from the front, and manage with many fingers in many different pies at any one time.

To be considered for this exciting opportunity you should be an experienced HR professional with a minimum of three years HR experience. Man management experience is not required, as the current team is very capable and highly experienced however it might be a small bonus. Our client is very open to considering first time man managers provided they have the gravitas to assume authority, and to win the immediate respect of their peers.

Applications are not restricted to candidates from the Not for Profit / Charity sector however, and we have been briefed to consider applications from experienced and capable candidates from all industry backgrounds.

Key responsibilities.

. To make available a high level of support to line managers and other directors on all issues relating to personnel management and employment matters.

. To provide an environment which encourages employee engagement.

. To help maintain the current working environment which is both friendly and relaxed whilst at the same time professional and effective.

. To assist in identifying and promoting opportunities for leadership development.

. Recruitment and retention, including the identification, attraction, and processing of high calibre and motivated candidates into the organisation.

. Training / L & D including identification of training needs and structured implementation, along with all line managers.

. Advice and compliance regarding all employment law matters.

. Install and monitor disciplinary and remedial structures.

. Install and monitor robust and reliable anti-discrimination policies which will be both legally and morally compliant.

. Payroll and other HR related administration.

Although not essential, it would be beneficial if you were CIPD qualified.

There may also be an opportunity to stand in for the CEO in his absence and to be the second in command, depending on your previous experience.

The role will require attendance in the Central London offices two days each week, and the remainder of the job holder’s time will be spent either at home or out in the field. You should live within the south east, and in any event no further north than Cambridge, and no further west than Oxford as you will be required to commute to central London two days each week.


In return for your dedication and expertise our client is prepared to pay a basic salary of between £45,896 to £59,869 depending on your previous experience and level of seniority. There is also a company car with this position. The company operates flexi working hours and actively promotes life / work balance to all its employees.

To be considered for this exciting position please send your CV in the first instance to Nick at  quoting reference HRD/ Charity 4589
