The Head of Engagement role will be a strong influencer and will support a number of initiatives including a robust approach to well being, a drive for diversity and the pursuit of an authentic inclusive culture.
A key measure will be the engagement of the wider workforce in key strategic plans and purpose, you will tasked with improving every element of the employee experience and life cycle - from recruitment through to off-boarding and exit interviews.
