Positioned in the economic and social capital of the south east, Croydon Council is big business which provides essential services to a diverse population of over 330, 000 people.
Serving a community rich in culture, heritage and ethnic background, Croydon Council is comfortably the largest London borough and has a budget of over £700 million. Croydon is also one of the few councils to have recently secured more that £20m in funding from a new Government programme called the Local Enterprise Growth Initiative.
“A prosperous, safe, healthy and sustainable future for the whole community”
The Human Resources and Organisational Development (HR and OD) department at Croydon Council has been successfully restructured within the last 12 months to form a newly centralised function of around 100 HR professionals operating from one location and under one Director.
The fully integrated team provides a highly efficient operation which now benefits from economies of scale and straightforward communication. The organisational model is widely considered to be at the forefront of HR thinking and the large structure provides exciting career development potential attracting staff from diverse professional backgrounds of both public and private sectors.
The new department is poised to implement a new e-HR information system and consult on a 3 year HR and OD strategy that will take Croydon from a ‘good’ to an ‘excellent’ Comprehensive Performance Assessment (CPA) rating carried out annually by the Audit Commission.
As part of the continuing programme of transformation and improvement we are looking to recruit the following 3 posts:
- Head of Organisational Development Consultancy
- HR Manager – Education & Social Services (Childrens’ Services)
- Learning and Development Manager
