We have an exciting opportunity to join the Senior Management Team (SMT) of a dynamic and growing children’s charity as Head of Human Resources & Operations.

The Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) is a leading provider of mental health services for schools across London and the Southeast. CCS also provides family support and early years education.

This rewarding role will support the next phase of their development which requires someone with a strong background in HR, reporting to the CEO.

As Head of Human Resources & Operations, you will work closely with the SMT as the most senior HR professional, providing strategic and operational advice and support to the organisation on all people related practices. You will be motivated by the mission of CCS and manage all health and safety matters, as well as lead the ongoing digital development of the organisation.

Main duties

  • Manage and review all HR policies and provide leadership towards change. Develop relevant structures and processes to maximise organisational effectiveness.
  • Work with the charity’s School Counselling Admin & HR Coordinator, as well as Service Managers, to recruit counsellors and therapists to work in schools. Manage recruitment needs across the organisation and champion the profile of CCS amongst multiple stakeholders.
  • Collaborate with the Remuneration Committee and SMT to create processes for pay reviews and staff remuneration, as well as performance management systems to address any issues or concerns.
  • You will receive training to ensure all CCS office space, centres and sites comply with statutory regulations relating to health and safety. You will motivate all staff leads to encourage their teams to adhere to the company standard.
  • Manage IT and digital developments across the organisation (including Sage HR, Salesforce CRM and Office 365).

We are looking for someone with a passion for making a difference to support the charity organisational goals and business needs. You will be a strategic, people and operations individual with a strong skill set to support the charities ongoing growth.
