Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

About the role

We are looking for an experienced Senior People and Organisational Development Business Partner (Senior PODBP) to work with our Operations directorate, influencing and enabling the delivery of our local and national information, advice and support services. You will drive forward the people agenda within the Operations directorate operating both strategically and tactically to provide expert and professional people leadership and guidance, supporting the directorate to promote a high-performance culture which enables their strategic and operational goals. You will lead and develop a team of HR Business Partners and work in close partnership with the National Volunteering Team to ensure excellent business-focused people advice.

As a leader you will drive forward an inclusive, collaborative, high-performance environment, supporting our values and expected standards of behaviour to be embedded across the Operations directorate, starting with your own team.

Reporting to the Head of People Partnering, you will be responsible for leading an efficient and progressive business partnering service that delivers expert and appropriate workforce management, leadership and guidance for the directorate. You will ensure our values and volunteering ethos are embedded across the directorate and lead the development and delivery of directorate specific plans and initiatives that drive improvements in the directorate’s capability, capacity and impact for people affected by dementia.

About you

You will be experienced in advising on complex employee relations matters and be confident liaising with and challenging senior stakeholders. You operate with gravitas; a strategic thinker and confident at decision making. You are excited by an environment where there is lots of change happening at the same time, being comfortable with transformational and operational change.

You'll be a first-class people manager able to inspire, coach and unite people towards a common goal. You’ll demonstrate compassion – operating with kindness and empathy and not shying away from tough conversations. You’ll be comfortable with working and leading through ambiguity.  And demonstrate sound judgement in the evidence-led decisions you make for us.

If you're interested in being part of this exciting future, we want to hear from you. We are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications for all people.  If you are considering applying, and something is holding you back – just give us a call, we love to talk!

Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely, all contributing to a strong work life balance. We also have various learning programmes to support you in your development and help you grow to realise your potential and shape a career with Alzheimer's Society.
