Head of Engagement - Chelmsford

Head of Engagement Jobs

Engagement is not just a marketing buzzword; in corporations, it is the key to ensure you are maximizing the potential of your most valuable asset – your employees. How is this achieved? Well, as head of engagement, you will be expected to work out the route to optimum engagement for your team. You will be expected to come up with innovative leadership strategies and put them into action via your team.

When you set up a successful strategy within a department or location, the role becomes more consultative as you roll out new or modified strategies over multiple locations and departments. Your success will be measured in terms of employee satisfaction in the shape of retention and turnover.

The skills required

Typically, heads of engagement roles are filled by people from an HR background who have been instrumental in driving change within their employment culture. An understanding of what makes employees tick and how that can be applied to their jobs is a given, but so is demonstrating that this can be achieved within budgetary restraints and in line with the strategic aims of the company.

You will need to be an enthusiastic and personable type, who will be able to carry employees with you on your projects. This can be difficult with diverse workforces, but being able to understand employees’ motivations and how to incentivize them will be of great help.

Head of Engagement Jobs in Chelmsford

Located in Essex, Chelmsford was granted city status in 2012 and is the only city in the county. It is situated on the River Can, around 32 miles from Charing Cross and is considered to be part of the London commuter belt, meaning it offers a range of options for those seeking Head of Engagement positions.

Chelmsford's history can be traced far back in time and evidence of Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements have been found. In 1199, the town was granted a royal charter and the market is still held in the centre today.

During the Middle Ages, Chelmsford was named the county town of Essex and its population continued to grow in size. The railway arrived in the middle of the 19th century, leading to further economic growth and by the late 1800s, it had become known for its manufacturing industry, particularly electrical equipment.

In 1899, the world's first radio factory was opened in Chelmsford and during the second world war, the region produced machinery and light engineering.

During the end of the 20th century, Chelmsford declined economically. However, the city has gone through major regeneration over the last 30 years and these days it is an important location for administration and distribution.

Chelmsford is currently home to a number of large companies, including investment managers the M&G Group, electric motor manufacturer ebm-papst UK Ltd and e2v Technologies, which is known for its high-tech engineering products for the medical, science, aerospace and industrial markets.
