Job Type
1 Sep 2022

The salary range for this role is £46,634 to £52,625 per annum, based on a 36 hour working week.

This role is open to hybrid working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We're less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what hybrid working may look like for you.

The People and Change Service at Surrey County Council is in the midst of implementing its Workforce of the Future Strategy and its vision of being "at the forefront of innovation and best practice in people management to ensure that we maximise the value of our workforce in a rapidly changing world".

Part of that service is the OD (Organisational Development) team whose mission is to increase organisational effectiveness through our people, using the design and development of targeted initiatives in response to strategic priorities, objectives and issues.

This new Assistant OD Business Partner role will work seamlessly with HR Business Partners to offer an exceptional service to our customers.

To be shortlisted to interview for this position your application will clearly evidence:

  • Leading edge thinking in all aspects of Organisational Development, Organisational Behaviour, Design and Performance improvement.
  • Comfortable working with leaders at a Senior level, confident and ready to offer constructive, respectful challenge.
  • Able to see the bigger picture, can think strategically and make connections across the organisation.
  • An ability to process the complicated and make it simple
  • That you are top class communicator and collaborator, who can work across the organisation and can quickly build a strong network and use it to get things done.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
