Take our new HR strategy, and run with it

Who we are

We’ve just finished work on an evolution of our people strategy here at Warwickshire County Council. Our leadership team are deeply involved and committed to reinforcing its ambitions and key themes. Now, we need someone with the gravitas and nous to rally 4,000 colleagues around it – so we can ultimately deliver even better services. You’ll join a supportive and open culture where you can operate with autonomy and trust.

A pivotal responsibility

This is tremendously wide-ranging role with management of three teams: People Skills handles training, including E-learning; OD oversees culture change and transformation, inductions, benefits and engagement; and EDI focuses on inclusivity across the workforce, supporting staff networks and tailoring our offer to the needs of our staff.

As well as maximising a c.£2 million budget, you’ll manage four direct reports and a wider team of 22-staff, ensuring all our workstreams are on track for delivery.  You’ll also be a trusted advisor on all things HR & OD for the leadership team – which means you’ll also have many opportunities to champion innovations to expand and enhance our capabilities. 

What we’re looking for

CIPD-qualified, it’s vital that you bring a wealth of senior HR Learning and Organisational Development experience – not only operationally, but in large-scale change management.

Commercially-minded, you’ll have a strong reputation for designing and leading development products and solutions that deliver results, from cultural change and astute leadership to better performance, attraction and retention. We’ll also expect you to have a good grasp of public sector procurement and contract processes.

You’ll be a natural communicator with great people and stakeholder management skills and enjoy writing, presenting and winning buy-in for business cases.

Your rewards

Success here will mean we’re able to provide a better quality of life for our 550,000+ residents – not to mention the businesses investing in our ever-growing commercial and cultural scene.

Naturally, you’ll have the chance to build on your already-impressive HR & OD expertise too and, over time, take on even more senior roles. Plus, as well as a generous holiday allowance and the Local Government contributory pension scheme – you’ll have the flexibility to work from home two or three days a week over the long-term.

For an informal discussion about the post, contact Allison Lehky (informal enquiries will be responded to from 4 January onwards).

Should you require application forms in an alternative format / language or any adjustments to be made throughout the application process or upon appointment, please contact and we will make every effort to meet your specific requirements.

To apply, please visit our website.

Closing date: 18 January 2021.

Interview dates: 3 & 4 February 2021.
