We’re making a difference, can you?
Dixons are seeking to appoint a Chief People Officer to contribute to the leadership of its next stage of growth and development.
This is a challenging role requiring an experienced leader with a track record of success, strong interpersonal skills, an adaptive approach and a strategic mindset. The successful candidate will be passionate about making a tangible difference in children’s lives, particularly those facing educational and social disadvantage in the North.
The new CPO will contribute to an engaged, entrepreneurial leadership team during a period of rapid expansion, and will ideally have previous experience of growing organisations of a similarly complex nature.
Due to the growing geographic spread of our organisation, there will be the requirement to travel around and between West Yorkshire and the North West. A hybrid approach to office / home working can provide some flexibility whilst opening this opportunity to potential candidates from across the north of England.
