£41,665 - £47,800

We are seeking a passionate, committed and motivated leader for our Head of People and Organisational Development. You will have a proven track record of leading and delivering transformational change within your organisation, demonstrating innovative people management solutions to meet organisational goals. You will be an accomplished senior leader, able to inspire and manage your team and work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders to make our vision a reality.

The Lake District National Park Authority is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda, enabling us to build on our success, becoming even more efficient, commercial and innovative. We want you at the heart of this journey, leading the development of our people (staff, volunteers and members) to support this journey of change. We want you to shape how we inspire, develop and manage our people to deliver our organisational goals. It is an exciting time to join us.

About you

A traditional approach will not work. We want someone to work with us to break new ground, locally and nationally.

You will bring fresh thinking with the tenacity to translate visionary ideas into a practical programme that will shape people management and development in the whole organisation.

You will be a tenacious and talented leader with a flexible, ‘can do’ attitude and with the enthusiasm to create a modern and effective approach to service delivery.

If you have what it takes to lead an exciting agenda to transform our Authority forever then we want you.
