Working for Lumos
This vacancy has now expired, and is not accepting any new applications. p>
Named after the light-giving spell in Harry Potter, Lumos is an international children’s organisation founded by J.K. Rowling in 2005.
We have a bold mission: to have a world without institutions and orphanages by 2050. Research shows the dramatic harm that institutional care causes to children and the proven benefits of the alternatives: community and family care. Lumos tackles the root causes of family separation – poverty, trafficking and discrimination – and transforms care systems around the world. We speak up on behalf of children trapped in institutions and reunite them with their families. And we change education, health and social care systems so every child can thrive.
We are proud of the significant growth and many positive outcomes we have achieved in recent years. As we look ahead to embark on our new strategy we are seeking to appoint an outstanding Director, People, to lead a high performing global people function responsible for both HR and Recruitment that operates to the highest professional standards. You will grow and develop a dynamic team that understands the needs of the organisation and can respond to a rapidly changing environment. Key to the role is to shape and drive organisational change, identifying current and future capability requirements, codify our culture and support in attracting, developing and engaging the talent that will help us to achieve our ambitious mission and objectives.
The successful candidate will bring an extensive track record as a strategic HR generalist combined with experience of leading effective operational delivery in an international environment.

Right to Work:
If you do not already have the right to work in the UK, please think carefully before applying. This is because even if the role is sufficiently skilled to qualify for sponsorship, we will be unable to sponsor you if there is a suitably qualified settled worker available to fill the role (this is known as the ‘resident labour market test’) unless you are currently in the UK and your immigration status and qualifications mean that the resident labour market test will not apply in your case.
Lumos is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and criminal records checks where legally permitted.
