About Versus Arthritis

This is an exciting time to join us in People and Organisational Development (POD), where we’re recruiting to new roles created following a review and restructure. This is an opportunity to lead a step change in our approach to people engagement and join our community providing support for people with arthritis across the UK.

Further information is provided in a Candidate Pack, when you click the APPLY NOW BUTTON

To achieve our ambition to ensure that one day no one will live with the pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes, we want to be accurately reflecting the UK’s diverse population.  Currently 44% of our workforce are disabled or have a long-term health condition and 38% of our workforce have a direct relationship with arthritis.  We are a Disability Confident Committed employer with an action plan to become Disability Confident Leaders soon.

About the Role

Providing core services to managers and leaders of staff and volunteers, our Business Partners are the heart of our function. As the leader of this team you’ll need to ensure the team is at the top of its game, both in terms of subject knowledge and partnering skills. You’ll be committed to evaluating the impact of your service and routinely use data and feedback to drive service delivery. You’ll also act as the organisational expert on complex people relations issues and oversee the policy framework for people engagement across the organisation.
