An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior HR Lead on a permanent basis in Epping.
Following a restructure, a Senior HR Lead is required for Epping Forest District Council.
You will lead a team, working collaboratively with Directors, Managers and Stakeholders, delivering an effective service across HR Operations, Organisational Development and Learning & Development.
EFDC is in the process of changing how they think about service delivery in the future and this role is a key part of that process. The district is facing an unprecedented period of growth, which will bring changes in demographics, in the types of services required and, in the ways, people access those services.
The drivers for change are:
As Senior HR Lead, you will contribute to and implement a strong vision for the department. Deliver ambitious, innovative and forward-thinking approaches. Drive high-quality work and achieve objectives by effective performance and risk management. You will lead on developing a strategy to ensure the adoption of best practice and alignment to the strategic objectives to deliver the corporate plan, corporate values and people strategy to continuously improve the service.
To be successful you will have previous experience of working within Human Resources at a senior level in an organisation that has gone through an extensive change. You will have a strong background OD and continuous improvement. Previous experience of working in Local government is preferred, however, it's not essential.
You will be CIPD / degree qualified or equivalent with some formal management or project management training and be able to demonstrate a good understanding of safeguarding and local government legislation. Experience leading, motivating and inspiring staff is also essential for this role.
You will also be assessed on how you embody the Council's Core Values and Behaviours. In return, EFDC is offering a competitive salary and excellent benefits package which includes flexible working arrangements and career and professional development.
