The National Lottery Heritage Fund
Leading, Inspiring and Resourcing the UK’s Heritage
The National Lottery Heritage Fund is the largest funder of the UK’s heritage. The projects we fund create lasting and positive change for people and communities and we believe that heritage has a crucial role to play in contributing to a more equal society.
As part of its People Strategy the Heritage Fund is committed to continuing to invest in workforce development, to ensure everyone working in the Heritage Fund has the necessary skills, Values and behaviours to deliver the services our customers and stakeholders need.
We are currently seeking to recruit an experienced Workforce Development Manager on a full time, permanent contract based in our Leeds or Manchester Office (Hybrid Working). Role modelling our Values, you will lead our Workforce Development Team and work closely with senior Directors across the Heritage Fund to design and deliver programmes, initiatives and events to drive forward our People Strategy and enhance organisational performance.
You will be a key member of the HR senior team, supporting the Director of HR and their team in driving organisational change and effectiveness. The role will require close partnership working with colleagues in HR leading the development of new systems, processes and policies, ensuring that opportunities for driving forward our Values, behaviours and commitments to workforce diversity are maximised. Collaboration outside HR will also be key, and partnerships will need to be developed with colleagues leading on overlapping business improvement activities focussing on supporting customers, stakeholders and business processes.
If you are excited about helping ensure that heritage is inclusive and accessible to everyone, for now and future generations, then we want to hear from you.
- Applications close on 11 December 2023.
- Interviews are expected to take place on 18 December 2023.
Our Values and Behaviours sit at the heart of our work and are central to how we recruit. How you demonstrate our Values is just as important to us as your skills and experience.
- Inclusive of all aspects of heritage, people and communities
- Ambitious for our people, communities and heritage
- Collaborative by working and learning together
- Trusted for our integrity, expertise and judgement
The National Lottery Heritage Fund has offices all over the UK and we champion a flexible approach to working where this supports our business needs. We have formally adopted a hybrid working approach. This means that most employees will work from their contracted Heritage Fund office twice a week at minimum. Time spent on site visits to projects or other meetings based at another Heritage Fund or external office are counted as part of those two days. The other days in the week employees may work from home.
