I am so pleased that you are interested in this exciting, challenging but important role.
We have a compelling agenda to meet the needs of our armed forces now and into the future; ultimately, we in DE&S play a vital part in the security of the UK. Delivering this agenda, we have approximately 11,500 people in a variety of roles from project managers and engineers to finance professionals and our critical industrial workforce.
It was a combination of the organisation’s purpose and its commitment to the people agenda that attracted me to join DE&S. Our People Strategy sets out our organisational ambition to “create an inclusive environment where skilled people are engaged, empowered and inspired to be the best they can be to deliver the DE&S vision and mission”. I’m looking for a Head of HR Service Delivery to be part of the HR Senior Management Team to make that ambition a reality.
The Head of HR Service Delivery is responsible for customer focussed delivery of HR services. This includes: Talent Acquisition, Casework, HR Enquiry Centre, Entry Talent scheme management alongside the Reasonable Adjustments team and the HR management system and future technology solutions.
To be successful, you will be a HR professional with experience of operating at a strategic level in a large, complex organisation. You’ll be able to demonstrate your ability to deliver HR service improvements and performance against a backdrop of keeping our customers at the forefront of what we do.
You’ll also know that you can’t do that on your own, so demonstration of senior management experience in coaching and developing high performing teams and effective stakeholder and supplier management will also be key.
You will be joining an HR team that is friendly, pragmatic and committed, focussed on delivering high value professional HR services and advice.
This is an exciting time for DE&S and our HR team, I hope the prospect of being part of that excites you, and I look forward to your application. – Jill Hatcher, Director HR
