About the role

We are looking for a passionate Head of People to join our People Team here at Butlin's Bognor Regis

As Head of People, you will be responsible for all people related activity across the Bognor Regis Resort including employee relations, recruitment, talent management and learning and development.

You will have accountability for the People Team as well as our Nursery and Team Accommodation Team. This is a very hands on role and you will work alongside your team to manage and deliver change projects across the resort. You will also coach and develop the team to deliver the Butlin's people strategy of Get, Grow, Keep which is focused on building a truly amazing place to work where our team always makes a difference to our guests.

This role is an integral part of the Resort Leadership team reporting into the Resort Director with a dotted line to the Butlin's People Director.

About You

We are looking for an experienced Senior HR professional with demonstrable experience in a similar role within a large or multi-site environment.

You should have experience of developing, planning and delivering strategy for all HR specialisms, with the ability to prioritise and drive the teams' activities accordingly. 
From an organisational and culture perspective you'll develop and manage our ways of working, staying up to date with best practice and legal developments and translating these into innovative, meaningful and effective changes. You'll need to be able to confidently communicate at all levels, building valuable relationships across the business.
With strong leadership skills, you should be confident in inspiring your team to deliver amazing results for our teams and guests every day.

A CIPD qualification would be considered advantageous, but this is not essential. What is more important to us is your mindset, the ability to understand and connect to our culture and values and the drive to learn quickly.

As with all roles at Butlin's, you should enjoy a fast-paced environment and working in an agile way. We operate all year, 7 days a week and as such, some weekend working will be required to support our operation in this role.
