Candidate Profile

The successful candidate will be the internal and external expert for Reward across the whole organisation, and exceptional credibility and influence will be critical to their success. Experience in a widely-unionised environment would be an advantage, and applicants must have real strengths in managing stakeholders, people and change.

Candidates need to show they understand the technical and professional aspects of Reward and Recognition, and that they also understand (and can apply) commercial and financial principles. It will be important that you can take a 'whole-system' view of issues, events and activities, with a nuanced grasp of wider implications. Organised, decisive and able to manage a busy workload, you will be totally committed to the highest quality of outputs, both personally and from your team.

A clear, engaging communicator, able to present with concision and discuss with fluency, you'll be flexible, resilient and a beacon of calm effectiveness for your team and colleagues. Finally, the successful candidate will also have a strong affinity with the mission, purpose and values of the RSPCA. You will understand issues around animal welfare, empathise with our charitable objectives and be an ethical professional who operates with integrity.
