Head of Engagement - Essex

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.
