This is a challenging and exciting role for someone who is motivated to drive positive change and deliver a modern human resources function.
You must be comfortable working in a 'hands on' leadership role, where you work across all strategic aspects of the People Service Department whilst keeping oversight of operational and tactical service delivery. You will lead the development of highly efficient, professional, and contemporary people services (which includes a range of partnerships and collaborations outside of policing), enabling our people in policing to thrive. With a new strategy and structure for the department, along with a flourishing leadership team, you will have significant scope to enhance our existing ways of working to deliver and influence innovative projects and to shape the culture and behaviours we need to deliver our exciting future force ambitions. The department consists of HR Services, Health & Wellbeing, Workforce Transformation and Learning and Development.
Humberside Police is a modern, forward thinking Police Force, with a keen eye to promote continuous improvement of all front line and support services using creativity, innovation and digitisation in order to better serve the public.
