Head of People and Culture
Futures Housing Group owns and manages over 10,000 affordable homes extending from Derbyshire down to the Daventry area and serves more than 20,000 customers. We also co-own Access Training which supports around 1,100 FE learners every year. And our commercial development company, Limehouse, has enabled us to build and acquire more than 1,300 homes in the last four years.
With a track record of high performance and a wholehearted commitment to customer service, we are both confident and ambitious about our continued growth and success. We want to become an even more significant social housebuilder in our region, enabling people to live in high quality, affordable homes, confident that their landlord is committed to supporting them to live independently. Our Head of People & Culture will play a central role in achieving our ambitions: building on what we already do well – continuing to be efficient, customer focused and financially prudent. By investing in the skills of our workforce and ensuring we work hard to engage colleagues we can be confident that we will get the best from people and provide a great place to work. A key part of this is promoting an inclusive and welcoming culture that reflects and celebrates the diversity of the communities we work with. As part of our Senior Leadership team, this is a role with scope and influence and you’ll be the key strategic connection between our People strategy and our three-year corporate planning cycle.
It’s a role that demands a proven track record of leading a high-performing HR function that is customer focused and is expertly aligned to support business objectives. You’ll be able to add value to operational and strategic HR & OD issues, and be ready to take the lead on evaluating, testing and embedding new ways of working. We’re looking for someone who can engage and influence at all levels in the organisation; who is enthusiastic about organisational change and innovation; and who can work through sensitive or complex issues drawing on highly effective engagement, influencing and negotiation skills. We expect that you’ll be professionally qualified through membership of CIPD.
