Director of People and Culture

About us:

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers, yet for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case. And, with treatment and care affected by the pandemic, the situation has only got worse.

Pancreatic Cancer UK is a national charity dedicated to taking on this injustice using every possible means. We’re supporting people with pancreatic cancer now, campaigning, and funding vital research to transform the future.

About the role:

As our new Director of People and Culture, you will embed inclusive people practices across our organisation, building agile business partnering, a continuous learning mindset, and a strong culture co-created with our team and supporters. You will lead the growth of practical people initiatives and collaborations that both transform our workplace and the work that we do.

We are looking for someone with rounded HR expertise, steeped in knowledge around inclusive and emergent organisational development and people practices. You will be credible operating at Board level, bring strong knowledge of diversity, equity and inclusion, and be prepared to try new and innovative people practices where needed. You will be a resilient and inclusive collaborator, enthusiastic about working with our team and supporters to meet our transformative goals.

At Pancreatic Cancer UK, we believe the more diverse our organisation, the bigger the impact we can have on our society – and the greater difference we can make for people affected by pancreatic cancer. We welcome applications from individuals of all backgrounds and are particularly interested in hearing from people of colour and men, who are currently underrepresented on our team.
