Located on the beautiful North-East coastline, South Tyneside can provide an unrivalled quality of life. South Tyneside is a unique place: the natural assets, heritage and geography set it apart from the rest of the region and the resilience, pride and solidarity of the people make South Tyneside special. We have some magnificent places of natural beauty including our beaches and parks, and our local places are clean with an impressive range of housing, schools, and services to meet residents’ needs.

South Tyneside Council is an organisation where you can really make a difference. Under fresh political and officer leadership the Council is already high performing across many areas and is now looking for an experienced Human Resources and Organisational Development leader to take us on to the next level by helping us to design and implement a corporate-wide transformation programme. Responsible for the full functions of HR and also OD which has a renewed focus underpinned by new investment, the successful candidate will be people centred and committed to further developing an innovative and exciting vision and culture which also embrace and embed the principles of equality, diversity, inclusion and well-being. These new ways of working will support our employees and members to flourish through maximising our potential and be a catalyst for further organisational improvement.
