Who is Staffordshire University? 

Staffordshire University is an award-winning institution with over 100 years’ experience in delivering excellent higher education. Our main Stoke-on-Trent campus is located in the heart of the UK, with Centres of Excellence located in the towns of Stafford and Shrewsbury.

After a highly successful year in 2019, which included entering THE World University rankings for the first time, securing TEF Gold, and climbing in all the league tables, our University has constantly expanded its physical presence through new and industry-leading building developments and facilities. Looking towards our 2030 strategy, we are now transforming specific business processes to improve the student experience and integrate a wider feeling of inclusion and safety for our on-campus community.

About the Role  

Organisational Development Business Partner 

This opportunity comes at an exciting time as the University develops its 2030 Strategy which includes an ambitious People Strategy focused on building our next generation workforce, work environment and talent.   Join us and you’ll play an integral role in helping to design, develop and deliver the people capabilities and interventions which will be pivotal to achieving the People Strategy. As a senior member of the HR team, you’ll take the lead on the development and implementation of the University’s CPD framework. 

We’re looking for someone who has proven significant breadth and depth of experience operating in a large complex organisation and can show specialist expertise and knowledge in organisation development, organisation design, talent and career management frameworks.    Your experience may be from within higher education, but sector experience is not essential.
