We are currently working with a hybrid working model, where there is the option of working from home combined with 4-12 days a month of working in the office.

About this role

Young people’s mental health is one of the most urgent issues facing the UK today. At YoungMinds, we are leading the fight to make sure that all young people can get the mental health support they need, when they need it.

To support our continued growth and investment, we are introducing a new Senior People and Culture (P&C) Manager role to the P&C team at YoungMinds.

This new role will deputise for the Head of People and Culture, managing our business partnering function which has recently been re-introduced and is moving from strength to strength.

At the heart of this role are our people and community, ensuring the business partnering function is constantly fit for purpose and providing support to colleagues across the organisation. This role will also lead the delivery of key people and culture aspects of our AJEDI (anti-racism, justice, equity, diversity and inclusion) action plan, making a significant impact on our organisational AJEDI aims.

About you

The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • experience of line managing multiple people
  • experience of managing complex and high volume employee relations cases
  • ability to analyse, monitor and take action based on both qualitative and quantitative data
  • understanding of safeguarding principles and how they apply to staff, volunteers, young people, contractors and safer recruiting
  • understanding of AJEDI principles

If you’re a strong leader, able to challenge empathetically and balance instinct, experience and data, we want to hear from you!

In return, you will join a brilliant team, full of talent, passion and support for one another, and organisation that truly values the impact (both current and potential!) that our team has.

This is a permanent post, and whilst cover is required on key days across the week, we are open to discussing your needs around flexibility and working hours to enable you to deliver the role to your true potential and ability.
