What will you be doing?

We're here to make sure children and young people with cancer get the right support at the right time and we do this through tailored psychosocial support and by ensuring that their voices and their unique needs are heard and understood.  To deliver our mission we need a talented and engaged workforce and a workplace that fosters opportunities for skill enhancement and growth.  What you will be doing:   

Collaborating closely with our People and Culture Team to assess and refine our current workforce planning strategies   Sharing your insights and best practices in strategic workforce planning to enhance our approach   Upskilling us in the use of effective workforce planning techniques, including methods to effectively evaluate our workforce planning initiatives   Supporting us to develop tailored workforce planning frameworks to meet our organisation's unique needs and challenges and to use and analyse workforce data to inform decision-making and anticipate future talent requirements   Assisting in the creation of scenario planning and developing forecasting models to anticipate future needs   Offering recommendations on recruitment and talent development strategies.  

We are flexible and open to discussing how much time you can commit to the role (and, as the expert in this field, what you think will be needed and how you think you can help).   As the People & Culture Team is geographically scattered, this role can be carried out from any location in the UK. That said, we have offices in Bristol and London and love nothing more than coming together in person to work on projects and solve challenges. 

What are we looking for?

If you have:   

previous experience in strategic workforce planning   proficiency in using HR software and systems for data analysis    a keen eye for detail    great communication skills   a passion for our cause and a desire to make a meaningful impact through volunteering 

then you could be the key to unlocking our organisation’s full potential, ensuring that every member of our workforce is in the right place, at the right time and maximising our effectiveness.  

What difference will you make?

You will receive:  

A solid introduction and first-hand experience of working in the charity sector with the opportunity to meet other Teams across the organisation and gain a clear insight into the day-to-day work of Young Lives vs Cancer   The chance to broaden your skills and expertise in strategic workforce planning within a new environment   Opportunities to develop your coaching and mentoring skills with an incredibly engaged People & Culture Team    The satisfaction of using your skills and talents to make a tangible difference in the lives of young cancer patients   And of course, we’ll cover any out-of-pocket expenses in line with our Volunteering Policy!
