Assistant Director, Human Resources
Innovation, ambition and a drive to deliver for residents underpin our successes in Barnet. We are proud of our ability to do things differently and can point to impressive results in tackling some of local government’s biggest challenge areas such as housing and adult social care, using a fresh approach.
With a new Leader of the Council and an ambitious five-year plan, it’s an exciting time for Barnet. Based in our brand new Council offices in Colindale, we want to ensure we provide outstanding HR Services to meet our future challenges and harness Barnet’s truly engaged workforce.
Having recently returned the HR Service from an outsourced provider, our aim is to enhance the strategic advice and customer services we provide and develop our OD offer right across the organisation.
We are looking for a new AD with a clear vision of what a highly effective, customer focused HR Service looks like with a strong desire to get the basics right. Equally important are excellent relationship building skills, commercial acumen and the ability to support decision-makers at the very top of the organisation.
We believe this is a great opportunity to deliver the people agenda within a motivated and driven London borough. You are most likely to bring experience of working in a local government context and will combine your strategic overview with a practical operational approach that meets the needs of our flexible workforce.
