NSPCC appoints Brett Terry as Director of People


The NSPCC has appointed former Director of People and Organisational Development from the Alzheimer’s Society as its new Director of People.

Brett joins the NSPCC with nearly 20 years’ experience of the charity sector, having held senior strategic and operational HR roles at Amnesty International, Cancer Research UK and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Most recently Brett was at the Alzheimer’s Society where he was in charge of organisational development, engagement and internal communications.

He was also responsible for delivering Dementia Friends, a programme which delivered dementia awareness and encouraged people to offer support to those affected.

Throughout his career Brett’s teams have picked up many awards such as an HR Excellence Award for employee engagement, and a Charity Times winner of the HR Team of the Year Award. In 2017, the Alzheimer’s Society POD team won four prestigious awards, including Excellence in Internal Communication and best not-for-profit Organisational Development Initiative.

Brett also co-founded Volunteers Count with Roger Parry of Agenda Consulting. This initiative, the equivalent of People Count, enables volunteer managers to benchmark their volunteer data and activities with other organisations, thereby constantly driving up volunteer processes and practices.

NSPCC Chief Executive, Peter Wanless said: “We are delighted Brett is joining us as our new People Director. His passion, extensive experience and knowledge of the charity sector will be invaluable as we step-up our drive in 2018 to recruit more volunteers to Childline.”

Brett said: “It is a privilege to be joining an organisation that is the best equipped, trusted and respected to prevent child abuse, and give the future generation the best start in life that they deserve. I am looking forward to playing my part, alongside so many fantastic employees and volunteers.”
