Each year, over 11,500 men die of prostate cancer, and 400,000 men are living with it. We have a bold strategic ambition that informs everything we do – we want to see a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.
Today, Prostate Cancer UK is leading the fight against prostate cancer by funding ground-breaking research, supporting men with advice and information and influencing for change in UK policy and health services. We are also starting the conversations that need to happen across the UK so that people become more aware about prostate cancer and their personal risk.
As the Director of People and Culture you will play a critical role in shaping and building our capacity to realise our strategic ambition. It is paramount to our success that we have an engaged, diverse and effective workforce. We need to attract, nurture, and retain talent by creating and investing in an environment that gets the best out of our people. There is a gap between our vision and our current situation, and if you are successful in this role we will look to you for expertise and leadership in building a more equitable, inclusive and diverse culture.
We are looking for a strategic and innovative leader who can offer clear direction to the organisation to build and deliver our People Strategy. You will be a rigorous, clear thinker and a sophisticated communicator, who will inspire trust and confidence in the People function and wider organisation. As a champion of inclusivity and diversity; you will be able to deliver practical changes that improve the culture, opportunities and participation rates for under-represented groups of people and help the organisation move forward.
At Prostate Cancer UK we need the very best people to help us achieve our ambition. If you believe you are a great fit for the job and our organisation, and want to make a difference for men, we hope you will be inspired to find out more. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our senior team and would particularly welcome applications that would help us achieve this aim.
