Full Time
Only areas within Greater London are entitled to this allowance.

British Transport Police (BTP) provides a vital policing service to Britain’s railways, the rail operators, their staff and passengers across the country.  We are a specialist force, highly responsive to railway issues alongside our policing mission to keep the public safe and protect vulnerable people.  Our vision is to work with the rail industry to deliver a safe, secure, reliable and expanding transport system.  To achieve that we have developed a new operating model that will see us transform our services and how we deliver them.  This is the most significant transformation we have undertaken and we need your help.

There were 62 million passengers journeys across the UK last year and this is set to rise substantially.  As the UK's national railway police, we employ more than 5,000 people across the country who keep people safe and the rail network moving.   Our transformation will change how we operate, establish new ways of engaging with rail users and those who work on the network, and digitise our services – all while equipping our officers with modern technology. At the same time, we will build our capability to exploit data, become more insight driven and deliver better value for money.

The scale and pace of our transformation is significant, and we are looking for the best people to help us make it a success. This is an opportunity to shape the future of railway policing – and to work with highly motivated team of people – with and without a police background.

Our Transformation Portfolio Group is developing its capability to become a stronger and more mature change function.  We currently have an opportunity for a HR Manager who will play an integral role in overseeing the delivery of people based project activity associated with the BTP2021 portfolio of change. We are looking for applicants who have experience of the following:

  • Assisting with the delivery of large scale change programmes involving significant culture change across a dispersed organisation
  • Experience of coaching and consulting at a senior level, underpinned by a collaborative and supportive style of working and an ability to successfully manage relationships.
  • Acting as a change agent, working proactively to make organisational change happen.
  • An in-depth knowledge of all HR disciplines, such as employee relations and staffing.

With your help, we can make improvements to the way we police the rail network, investigate crime and safeguard the most vulnerable, and modernise our supporting infrastructure.  ‘We are BTP’ – come and join us.
