Director of People & Organisational Development

Versus Arthritis
London hybrid

Versus Arthritis was created in 2018, following the merger of Arthritis Research UK and Arthritis Care. From the beginning our driving ambition was to demand and deliver better answers for people with arthritis. We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved so far, but there is so much more to do.


Our organisation is undergoing a period of significant change and growth; having recently completed a strategic review our new five-year strategy launches in April and along with new vision, mission, values and behaviours to drive the way we work, this is an incredibly exciting time to join the organisation as our new Director of People and Organisational Development.

As Director of People and Organisational Development, you will play an essential role in developing and implementing our people and culture strategy to attract, retain and develop talent in the charity ensuring learning is valued, and that diversity and inclusion are front and centre of all we do.

We need a strategic, visionary and engaging people leader with deep experience of leading teams, including volunteers, to success and of working across an organisation to help instil a strong people culture where everyone feels included. Collegiate and driven to succeed, you will work closely with the wider leadership team to lead the charity toward sustainable success with innovation and creativity.

We are looking for someone who shares our commitment to our work, our values and our Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) principles and achieve the targets we have set ourselves to increase the diversity of our charity by 2024.
