Rupert McNeil, Government Chief People Officer

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the role of Chief People Officer for the Home Office, one of the most influential and important HR roles in government.

Leading a directorate of around 300 people, you will drive real transformation across the department in the whole range of HR activities, as set out in the Home Office’s recently launched People Strategy.

The Chief People Officer will also play a corporate role in the delivery of the HR Function across government. As Government Chief People Officer, I lead HR and people activities across the civil service workforce of c.420,000 civil servants.  There are over 3,500 HR professionals in the Civil Service - some work within the Civil Service’s central HR function, but most work within departments and are based all over the UK.  The Civil Service HR profession has a reputation for high performance and best in class professional development.

Civil Service HR professionals help their businesses deliver through building a skilled workforce, developing effective and inspiring leaders, and making the Civil Service a truly great place to work - a place where people from all walks of life can flourish.

If you are interested in this post, and feel your skills are a good match, then we look forward to hearing from you.
