Are you a HR manager with experience of managing people and cultural change as part of a large and complex transformational change programme? Are you able to develop and deliver change management plans to ensure stakeholders are engaged; new ways of working are embedded; benefits are achieved and risks mitigated? Can you demonstrate effective relationship management and influencing skills? Do you want to bring your knowledge of HR and change management best practice to one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK and join a HR team and a wider community of change practitioners who are committed to supporting the organisational development of the University?

Our University is renowned globally for the quality of our teaching and research, and has an ambitious vision for the future.  Working collaboratively with a community of change practitioners, the HR team have a significant part to play in championing and supporting the delivery of that vision.
