About the role

The HR Team at Sense is looking to recruit an experienced HR People Partner to lead our Recruitment function.  

Based at TouchBase Pears, our newly built, state of the art centre in Selly Oak, you’ll take the lead for enhancing our recruitment strategy so that we attract high calibre applicants who have the best possible candidate experience.

As an HR People Partner, you’ll work across our business with our core customer groups; Social Care, Education, Retail and Charity.

This is a great time to join Sense. With our new CEO, we’ve just launched our new strategy and in HR we’re right at the start of some really exciting projects. We are currently working on raising the profile of Sense as an employer, increasing ways to engage with our workforce, rationalising our HRIS and payroll systems, enhancing our leadership and management development offer and much more.

We’ll encourage you to work closely with our People Partners and HR team in Birmingham and London to grow your network in the not for profit sector.

About you 

Ideally CIPD qualified, you’ll need to have a proven track record in leading a high volume recruitment function that works across sectors. You’ll be an experienced manager of a busy team who can quickly understand the recruitment challenges our different customer groups face. You’ll be an innovative and resilient leader able to drive real change and make a difference to the people we support.
