Depaul helps people around the UK who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged with a special focus on young people.  We are a homeless charity with the largest network of emergency accommodation for young people in the UK, making a difference to the lives of thousands of young people each year.  We are unique, innovative and very passionate about what we do working in the very heart of local communities.

You will have a vital role to play in helping us to achieve our mission of offering homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to fulfil their potential and move towards an independent and positive future.

We have recently launched an ambitious new three year strategy to 2020 with the goal of expanding our much needed services and growing our skilled workforce to deliver support to more individuals and communities.  To enable this growth, we have reshaped our Human Resources function to have more reach across our nationwide activities and more depth of specialist expertise to guide our managers and deliver a responsive, in house service tailored to Depaul’s operational needs and strategic aims.

As a vital part of the refreshed HR team we are now seeking a Learning and Development Manager who will work across the organisation to meet the learning and development needs of Depaul UK’s workforce by identifying, developing and delivering innovative and cost effective approaches to training and development.

The HR team is led by the Executive Director of People, Quality and Equality and you will work alongside HR Business Partners and the HR Services Manager in delivering strategic and operational HR management and development for staff, managers and directors.
