We are looking to recruit a School Culture & Engagement Manager.

The Opportunity:

This is a new role within the School which seeks to develop an Employee Experience Programme for the School which fosters a positive, rewarding work environment that our employees feel proud to be a part of. You will work on programme activities that are in line with the School’s People Strategy and will help the School reinforce and evolve our culture, ensuring it is embedded across the entire employee life cycle. New initiatives should be well researched and produce real impact in terms of employee experience. You will work very closely with the Campus HR Manager and members of the Senior Leadership Team to develop some of these projects and initiatives.

The programme of activities developed will have a strong interdisciplinary focus, and map onto the delivery objectives within our Athena SWAN, Investors in Young People, EDI and Research Culture plans. This programme of activity includes, but it not limited to:

  • Improving recruitment and on boarding process
  • Enhancing learning and development activity-resources that instil our values and behaviours and ensuring completion of mandatory training by relevant staff groups.
  • Improving health and wellbeing initiatives-resources
  • Organising staff events and celebrations.

As this will be new activity for the School, the Programme of activity can be experimental and innovative in its approach, it is envisaged that activities will continually evolve and develop based on employee engagement and feedback. This role will gain an awareness of the employee needs, in order to identify and research new initiatives which can be introduced to our employees as part of the evolving programme.

This role will manage a budget for delivery of the Programme, and will also be responsible for contributing to fundraising bids to raise additional funds to support specific initiatives. This role will be an active influencing and advice role, both in the wider College and University but also with our key partners and stakeholders. This role will promote and celebrate the programme of activity, but also seek to enhance and evolve the programme in line with changing HR and Culture strategies.

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • Professional Qualification in Human Resources – Employee Engagement – Staff Development –Organisational Development (or other relevant discipline)
  • Experience in a Higher Education Environment and an understanding of the diverse needs within a large School (800 employees)
  • Experimental and innovative in project delivery, with ability to adapt and change project plans.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills in order to foster trust with employees.
  • Proven negotiation and influencing skills to get active employee engagement
  • High level of Organisational and Analytical skills with ability to assess employee needs, evaluate feedback and translate into actionable recommendations.
  • Experience of the Athena Swan Charter and/or IIP would be advantageous.
