Some of the key priorities already in scope, for the purpose of this project, include areas such as; strategic workforce planning, upskilling and reskilling, diversity and inclusion, building a clear employer value proposition and driving cultural change. The project team consists of a number of specialists which will define the content and progress in each of these individual areas (workstreams) and the role of this Group HR Program Director will be to sit across all of these areas, ensuring the end-to-end delivery of the overall future of work programme across 2-3 years.

This individual will succeed in this role through; being able to translate strategy in to measurable deliverables, operating within agile cross-functional teams and creating clear governance, metrics and expected ROI to enable ongoing review of progress. The ability to influence and manage senior stakeholder relationships internally (in CIB & leveraging CoE's) and externally (e.g. vendors) to deliver against program targets will be key, ensuring risks and issues are address and resolved in a timely manner, with effective change & communications throughout. You will also have the support of a Project Associate to support with the coordination of this program.
