    Health and Care Professions Council

Ref: GSe48410

The Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) is the regulator for 16 health and social care professions. Our purpose is to protect the public. We maintain a register of health and care professionals who meet our standards for training, professional skills, behaviour and health, and take action if their fitness to practise is called into question. The HCPC currently regulates around 360,000 professionals. 

This is an outstanding opportunity for an exceptional human resources and organisational development professional to join at a pivotal time for the HCPC as we look towards the transfer of social work regulation in England and the implementation of our five-year plan. You will lead our Human Resources function, covering HR Operations, Learning and Development, Organisational Development and Partners services and will play a critical role in developing and implementing HR strategies, policies, processes and services which support our ambitious organisational strategy, corporate plans and performance.

An inspiring leader, you will drive a culture of collaboration and high performance, where a valued workforce is motivated, supported and developed to deliver exceptional services. Outstanding communication skills and credentials in motivating teams and influencing others to deliver organisational change are essential and you will be able to combine a strategic overview with a practical, operational approach. You will have senior management experience in leading a successful HR function within a complex environment and will bring a demonstrable track record in the management of complex employee relations. A clear commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is essential. Personal qualities are equally important and you will be able to show how you have influenced and persuaded at all levels to deliver significant organisational and culture change in line with corporate objectives.
