STFC's research seeks to understand the Universe from the largest astronomical scales to the tiniest constituents of matter, yet creates impact on a very tangible, human scale. Cancer treatment to airport security, high-tech jobs to hydrogen-powered cars, energy generation to accident-scene emergency care; our impact is felt within and beyond the UK in many aspects of daily life.
To sustain the UK’s position as one of the world’s leading research nations, we maintain a focus on research excellence and corporate leadership which is why we are now looking to appoint our next Head of Human Resources.
Through this role you will provide visible and expert leadership of the Corporate Services Directorate as a member of the Corporate Services Management Board, and specifically of the further development and effective implementation of STFC’s human resources management strategy to enable the delivery of corporate strategic objectives through its people and in support of its mission and values.
While you’ll share our passion for research, you’ll be able to offer so much more - promoting HR and Talent excellence internally and with STFC’s wider research communities. You will provide strong leadership to the HR function and to STFC in transition and re-shaping as part of the Research Council Change Programme. You will need to act as the key strategic interface between HR and STFC’s senior stakeholders, executive leadership, operational management, staff and staff representatives and manage an extremely complex stakeholder landscape to enable the progression of change. This is a key strategic role for STFC with a combined requirement for corporate governance, leadership and management capability as well as the obvious HR professional and technical expertise.
