Workplace wellbeing is a priority within our Council Plan and is strongly supported by our Senior Leadership Team here at Solihull MBC. Our aim is to enable workplace wellbeing which can also have a direct impact on service delivery and business outcomes.
We have an exciting Organisational Wellbeing Strategy, and the new Wellbeing Development Officer role will support the established Organisational Wellbeing Lead in its delivery.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented, experienced, and passionate individual to join our energetic and outcome focused Organisational Development and Wellbeing Team.

You will work collaboratively with partners, stakeholders and colleagues across the Council including Managers, Local Wellbeing Leads, Resolution Contacts and Organisational Development Leads to develop, deliver, and sometimes commission wellbeing learning solutions that have a positive impact for colleagues, including developing training content and blended learning.
You should have experience of designing and managing the delivery and evaluation of innovative Learning and Development and/or wellbeing content and programmes for a range of different stakeholders with different learning and wellbeing needs.
Above all, you will be a passionate supporter of people development and be able to influence and challenge others to achieve their potential through a wide range of learning and development solutions.
You will have:
- A relevant learning and development, teaching, adult learning, adult mental health/wellbeing, human resources qualification or equivalent

We are currently implementing Smarter Ways of Working as we recognise that work is what you do and not necessarily where you go. Our aim is to balance the needs of our employees with service delivery and, for this role in particular, that is likely to include a combination of working from home (if desired) and our main Corporate buildings in Solihull.
