Our HR team exists to make BSR (British Society of Rheumatology) the best place to work that it can possibly be. For us that means ensuring everyone who works here has a great experience during their recruitment and induction process, knows that their wellbeing is a priority, understands how they can learn and develop, and that they are trusted to make decisions about how they do their best work.
This role has dual responsibility for HR and Facilities, and you’ll have two roles reporting directly to you, our HR Assistant and the Front of House and Facilities Coordinator. Both the HR and Facilities teams are part of the Operations Directorate, and we work as one team to ensure we support all colleagues across the organisation effectively. The balance of the role between HR and Facilities is around 70/30.
As a team, we use data to help us make decisions about what we should be focusing on as a team, and where our impact will be greatest. We’re values-led, and although we’re a small team, we have a big impact on the organisation. We’re proud to have gained recognition for our work during 2023, including being the 10th most inspiring workplace according to the global Inspiring Workplaces list, being awarded top small employer by Inspiring Workplaces, most flexible recruitment process by Working Families, and best HR Team by Charity Times. We balance high levels of trust with high accountability, and enabling a high performing team to do their best work is always our goal.
This might be your first ‘Head’ level role, or you might already be experienced at this level. You don’t need to have worked in the charity sector previously. Continual professional development is vital for us as a team, and so we’re happy to support you if you’re interested in completing a professional HR qualification.
If you see people as the heart of an organisation, and HR as a career where you can make a difference to those people, then we might be the right place for you!
