Do you want to make a difference by getting the best out of people, helping them develop and enabling high performing teams? If so, our new role of Organisational Development Practitioner supporting the Adult Social Care Directorate based in Solihull could be just for you.

This is an exciting opportunity to support a go-ahead customer base who is passionate about the development and wellbeing of their people and in an Organisational Development team that strives to continually learn, grow, and help others to realise their potential.

Reporting to the Organisational Development Lead, you will utilise your expertise and experience to understand stakeholder needs and design and deliver bespoke solutions that will provide positive outcomes.  This will include leadership and team development, facilitation, coaching and employee engagement activities using evidence-based approaches whilst measuring impact.

This is both an exciting and challenging time to support the Adult Social Care (ASC) Directorate.  ASC aim to help people to stay as independent as possible for as long as possible, enabling people to live their lives the way they want to.  Their workforce is at the heart of achieving this as they work in a respectful, diverse, compassionate, and inclusive way. 

Organisational Development plays a key role in developing the ASC workforce to navigate change, embed new cultures and working practices. This includes using OD expertise to enable high performance and the achievement of ASC priorities.

Working collaboratively with the OD Lead and Human Resources colleagues, you will utilise your experience, knowledge, and skills to influence and build excellent relationships at all levels.

In return, working for us will give you the opportunity to further develop your professional skills and experience, with involvement in a wide range of OD approaches that will seek to shape and have a positive impact on the employee experience.

We can also offer employees an inclusive and supportive working environment, together with a range of smarter and flexible working options, attractive staff discounts and a career average pension scheme.
