This is a great time to join Sense.  With a new CEO we’re working together to develop our new strategy and in HR we’re right at the start of some really exciting projects looking at reward, engagement, HR systems and talent development and more.

You will take organisation-wide responsibility for Wellbeing and as a member of our HR management team you’ll contribute to redeveloping and implementing our People Strategy. We’ll encourage you to work closely with our People Partners and HR team in Birmingham and to grow your network in the not for profit sector.
