Job Description

Here at the Disclosure and Barring Service, safeguarding vulnerable groups is at the heart of everything we do. We issue almost 6 million DBS checks every year, providing information to employers and organisations, so they can prevent unsuitable people from working with children or vulnerable adults. We also make complex decisions about whether to bar somebody from getting jobs in certain sectors. This is a pivotal moment in the future of DBS, it is the start of major change and we are looking for people who can hit the ground running. In this role you can be directly responsible for shaping the future of our organisation.

The HR and Organisational Development Director is an influential, demanding and rewarding role which will involve you working in partnership with a broad range of external stakeholders to design, lead and implement an HR and OD operational plan which enables the DBS to realise its vision and objectives.  You will need to be a flexible and responsive individual who can deal with the demands of an organisation undergoing a major transformation. You will play an integral part in the delivery of a DBS wide organisational design review that delivers strategic improvements, long term performance and cultural change needs for the organisation.  Our aim is to become a modern, forward-looking function, which is seen as a trusted partner and which supports a truly engaged workforce.

An inspiring leader, you will promote a culture of high performance, where a valued workforce is supported and developed to deliver exceptional service. Outstanding communication skills, powerful credentials in motivating teams, and proven success embedding change to cultures and behaviours are essential. You will combine a strategic mindset with first class operational leadership and bring a demonstrable track record in the delivery of sustainable performance improvement, introducing fresh-thinking, alternative perspective, and best practice. Equally important will be your ability to influence, advise, persuade and inspire at all levels.
