London, Waterloo

Part Time
Contract Type

We are a vibrant, forward looking mid-sized business operating in several infrastructure construction market sectors. We are a growing business with strong values and a vision to provide clients with a tailored approach to delivering social value through successful infrastructure projects.  

This is a strategic appointment which is viewed as a top priority for our growing business. We operate in a sector where  demand is expected to outgrow supply and where the attraction and retention of good people must be our primary focus. We are seeking a Board Level appointment who can come into our business and focus solely on people and the performance of our people.

We seek to provide our people with a working environment that is rewarding and challenging, where people  can enjoy working, feel valued and develop their skills. Our culture is a fair culture where good work is rewarded, but we also  need to up our game when it comes to goal-setting, recruiting the right candidates and performance management. 

We have strong desires around delivering a Social Value Impact through our recruitment strategies and we will require the  successful candidate in this role to champion this effort by aligning our business with strategic sourcing partners such as the  military, welfare to work providers, young offender rehabilitation institutions, and youth development charities.  

We are a growing business, and we are expanding our geographic footprint from our London HQ. We currently have circa 80  (white collar) full time employees which we envisage growing steadily. However, we plan to directly employ a proportion of  our (blue collar) site operatives going forward, to provide more opportunity for a Social Value impact to be landed. 

The successful candidate will be supported by a Human Resource Manager; a recruiter; and a training/competency manager.  We see this as a high-level role in our business, operating on a part-time basis and the successful candidate will have a seat  on our Board of Directors which will enable the successful candidate to drive our people strategies going forward.

Competencies and Training Requirements

We are seeking a suitable qualified professional with appropriate experience who could add value to our business in this role.  We don’t have a specific list of qualifications for this role.

Place of Work 

This role is very specifically about people and engaging with people. Whilst we appreciate that there may be some balance  between home working and attending the office, we would expect due to the nature of this role, for the role to primarily office based when on-duty. Our main office is located in Central London near Waterloo Station, and we have a growing number of  regional offices which are established to meet business needs, some short term, some longer term. The majority of time in this role would be spent at London Waterloo however there will also be a requirement to visit our other regional offices to promote engagement, successful on-boarding, and retention. 


Remuneration for this role will depend very much on the level of the successful candidate and as this is intended to be a part  time role, it will also depend on the level of commitment agreed upon.
