Assistant Director of Human Resources - Specialist Teams

Shaping a World of Change.

Ready to take the lead at Manchester Met?

With change comes challenge. But that’s what you thrive on. An expert in organisational development, you’re ready for more opportunities to influence significant transformational change, to further enhance the customer experience and improve intra-directorate communication.

Manchester Metropolitan University is always evolving. Right now, we’re also undergoing intense transformational change. That makes this a rare opportunity to join us at senior level where you will lead our specialist People Development, Employee Engagement and Equality and Diversity teams, translating workforce planning data into innovative retention and development strategies.

You’ll also evolve service delivery and lead time-sensitive and discrete HR projects, all while maintaining ‘business as usual’ for everyone across our organisation. Moreover, you’ll support the HRD in developing and delivering our people strategies, specifically a People Engagement & Development Strategy, working to secure approval for its implementation by championing positive change.

You will also have strategic responsibility for the newly formed University Teaching Academy (UTA), which provides career development and continuous improvement support to our academic community, enabling excellence in leadership, learning and teaching.

Wherever you’ve gained your generalist HR experience, you’ve done it in a culture of ambitious change and so have a track record of delivering. Of degree calibre and a CIPD Member or Fellow, you’re also an accomplished leader who can inspire and motivate diverse teams in a fluid environment. Both emotionally intelligent and comfortable with complex situations, data and legislation, you’ll be excited to push the boundaries in our multi-cultural, non-linear environment.

Your approach is just as important: you’ll bring a positive, inclusive, and collegial leadership style coupled with the credibility and capacity to foster fruitful relationships with the HRD and senior team.

Whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever you want to achieve, if you have the drive, we will support you and help you make your mark on the world. Along the way, you’ll also enjoy a competitive rewards and benefits package.

Please note, interviews for this role will be held on the 3rd of June.
