The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.
Our people are at the heart of what we do and fundamental to our success. The Head of Strategic Resourcing will lead the capacity and capability strand of our people strategy to ensure the Trust has the right people in the right roles delivering the right impact. This role will promote a culture where our people are empowered with the skills, capability, tools and decision-making to deliver the best outcomes for the cause. Through insight-led strategic workforce planning this role will align and mobilise resources to deliver our strategic aims, developing flexibility and autonomy and enabling the Woodland Trust to move at pace.
You’ll be a credible HR senior leader with experience leading talent management programmes, including the identification, development, engagement, retention and deployment of high potential and critical roles. You’ll have experience leading change and implementing a strategic approach to workforce planning, informed by insight-led data and evidence.
You’ll be a strategic thinker, confident in building effective partnerships with wide ranges of people, coaching and influencing senior leaders and stakeholders to ensure the capacity and capability strand of our people strategy are aligned promoting a culture that plays a real part in the continued success of the Trust.
This is a hybrid working role, where you’ll work some of your time from home and some of your time from the Grantham Office. Time in the office will vary, but is expected to be around twice a month.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.
We believe that all people, no matter their background, identity, ability or circumstance, should benefit from trees. We believe everyone deserves equal protection from climate change. Equal air, water and soil quality. Equal opportunity to feel the positive impact of trees and woods on our minds, bodies and spirits.
We also believe our own organisation should reflect and represent all voices within our communities and recognise that the environmental sector as a whole is one of the least ethnically diverse in the UK.
But we are determined to change this and we are taking action. At the Woodland Trust we encourage applications that reflect the richness of human diversity and promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.
