Job description

Horizon Care and Education Group supports more than 800 children and young people in England through a mix of children’s homes, specialist education and supported accommodation. We help young people to flourish and thrive, regardless of the challenges they have faced.

Our team of over 1,000 colleagues is at the heart of everything we achieve. From teaching staff to residential workers, psychologists to our specialist support services, they work tirelessly to offer the best services and support for children and young people within our care. We celebrate our team’s diversity and their range of personal experience and skills.

One of the most important factors in our continued success is building a strong, collaborative culture and a career offer that makes us the employer of choice in our highly competitive sector. We’re looking for an exceptional People professional to lead this work, with the full repertoire of HR and OD skills and a nuanced understanding of how complex, dispersed organisations can achieve world-class outcomes.

You’ll have experience of working across a number of sites, and of inspiring colleagues who are strongly motivated to do a fantastic job for the children and young people who rely on us to be the best at what we do. It’s important that you understand the careful balance between operational expectations and high-quality service provision, and that you have a proven track record of establishing a strong EVP that lasts throughout an individual’s career with Horizon. In return, you’ll have the personal and career satisfaction of creating a safe, nurturing environment in which both young people and colleagues can be genuinely fulfilled.
