We hope that you’ve found this site comprehensive and persuasive, and that the information provided has enabled you to make an informed decision about your application.

Before you apply, please ensure you have read the role profile and person specification in detail.

Director for People and Operations

Cadence Partners are using Applied, a new application platform developed by the Behavioural Insights Team, to record your application. Applied is focused on using behavioural and data science to improve hiring decisions and minimise unconscious bias in the recruitment process.

You will be asked to respond to four questions which will allow you to express your match against the person specification. Your answer to each question will be viewed in isolation, and reviewed against the job specification. Please therefore ensure there is enough detail in your response and evidence in that single response, without any references to your other responses.

NB: Whilst we are also asking for your CV, please note that we will not be viewing your CV during the initial sift process. The selection panel will not have access to your CV, so it is therefore essential that you respond to each question fully.

Non-Executive Trustee Director
