Tewkesbury Borough is one of the fastest growing districts in the country. We have ambitious plans for the local community and business backed by significant investment and our commercial approach to generating the funds we need. This year we have been designated by the government as a garden town attracting major investment over the next quarter of a century and our bid for a significant share in the national “future high street fund” was successful. A new council plan is under development ready to set out our ambitions for the next four years.

It is an exciting period in the council’s history and our people are enthusiastic about the challenge; our recent “Your Say” survey showed 97% were committed to delivering the council’s vision.

As the council’s HR and OD Manager you would have a great opportunity to be part of delivering this vision. We recently adopted a Workforce Development Strategy setting out the challenges we must address over the next few years if we are to attract, retain and develop the talent we need. A key part of your role will be to implement this strategy and ensure it stays fresh and relevant to the environment we face.

Supported by a small but highly respected HR and OD team, you will provide leadership and direction and be an ambassador for our corporate values and behaviours across the council. You will be part of the Operational Managers group whilst at the same time expertly influencing and advising the senior management team and members. Possessing the skills, experience and insight to deal with the full range of day to day HR issues that arise in a busy organisation, you will combine this with an eye for the long term identifying and delivering the strategic workforce initiatives that will have a major impact on our future success. CIPD or equivalent qualified, you will have the skills to establish your professional credibility and personal impact with all those you work with.

This is a highly rewarding role in a small but influential council where you will be highly visible and have the opportunity to make a lasting impact.

For an informal discussion, please contact Howard Crabtree, Interim HR Manager, on 01684 272262 (or Sophie Newbery, HR Assistant, on 01684 272030 to arrange a time).

Closing Date: Sunday, 27 October 2019

Proposed Interview Date: Thursday, 7 November or Friday, 8 November 2019
