We are currently looking at our values and how we work across the BFI, including how we support more agile working and the changes that the Covid-19 pandemic have accelerated in meeting working life expectations and ambitions.

We are looking for someone who is a generalist with an interest in Learning and Development.

You will be a proactive, client focused professional who will collaborate with peers to deliver high levels of service. CIPD qualified, your approach will reflect best practice HR but with a pragmatic ability to adapt and deliver solutions to sometimes complex employee relations matters.

Your working environment will be both challenging and inspiring. We have around 580 core people plus fixed term, freelancers and volunteers to support our highly varied activities including the London Film Festival, the world’s largest film archive and the funding of film productions to name but a few.
