Director of HR and Workforce Transformation

Slough Borough Council
Slough, Berkshire
up to £119,000

Slough Borough Council is never far from the headlines at the moment - the challenges are well documented, but there’s been much less coverage of Slough’s recovery and improvement journey. There is a new corporate plan in place outlining Slough’s commitment to residents, including a determination to close the healthy life expectancy gap and improve the life chances of the borough’s children and young people. There is also a new top team in place – all focussed on turning the council around. Slough has already made some great progress but there are still mountains to climb. That is why the council is looking for an extraordinary group of senior leaders to join them for what will undoubtedly be the biggest and also the most rewarding challenge of their careers.


The Director of HR and Workforce Transformation will play an absolutely critical role leading the council through transformation.  They will rebuild the council’s HR function, upskill the workforce of 1,000 staff and drive the corporate cultural change programme.  Slough Borough Council is looking for a bold, creative and innovative HR professional to join them at the beginning of their journey and build a HR service that equips their workforce to deliver outstanding services.  Commitment to equalities, diversity and inclusion will shine through in everything, and the new Director will collaborate with senior leaders across the council to create a culture and workforce which is modern, dynamic and representative of Slough’s diverse communities.
