Organisational Psychologist (20596)

As part of Principal Directorate People, the Directorate HR Customer Engagement is responsible for helping employees to perform and contribute positively through genuine engagement with the overall mission of the EPO. In co-ordination with teams in PD People and elsewhere, it channels and acts as the interface for people advisory services at three levels:  

  • Organisation: to provide actionable insights to support people policies based on behavioural science and people analytics, in the Office’s context and in a wider organisational perspective  
  • Management: to advise and support managers in implementing the people strategy
  • People: to support individual staff members throughout their employee life cycle in an environment that fosters engagement and well-being 

The directorate includes the departments HR Business Partners, HR Interlocutors and Well-being and Engagement, and uses business-focused HR teams to co-ordinate activities across HR services in line with the needs of the organisation. Our Well-being and Engagement team is responsible for enhancing staff engagement and well-being by providing people advisory services and designing practical interventions based on behavioural science and people analytics. As an organisational psychologist, you will support both PD People and other units in delivering people-related strategic goals through the implementation of various organisational and staff surveys, and by providing insightful analysis and actionable advice to management, core business, HR business partners (HRBPs) and strategic projects in partnership with different departments and stakeholder groups.
