Perhaps you are working towards your CIPD – though, that’s not essential? If so, this is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills within a fast-paced and challenging HR environment.
It’s a varied role in which you will benefit from exposure to a broad range of HR activities – involving everything from advising managers on recruitment and selection procedures, to establishing metrics and benchmarks to inform management decision making.
In essence, you will be responsible for the coordination work that ensures the smooth daily operation of the HR function and the successful delivery of our strategic plan. So, you’ll monitor probation dates, ensure accurate and timely completion of the monthly payroll closure, support annual salary and other review processes, advise employee benefits, maintain and monitor spend against budgets, and provide advice on HR policies & processes.
Required to deliver a variety of regular and ad-hoc reports - including establishment, turnover and sickness reports - you will also act as the first point of contact for HR database queries. Additionally your database responsibilities extend to maintaining data integrity and liaising with your colleagues to ensure consistency of use.
Success in such a busy and wide-ranging role demands solid IT skills, a proactive approach, and exceptional planning and organisational skills to manage multiple strands of work to meet tight and conflicting deadlines. Accuracy, attention for detail and professionalism are naturally of key importance in this environment - as are the well-developed communication, relationship management and assertiveness skills to handle sensitive issues and to give advice and information with confidence and discretion.
And in return for your enthusiasm and commitment? We commit to actively develop you and offer excellent benefits including a 34.5 week (with an early finish on Friday), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, and generous annual leave.
For those shortlisted, the initial stage will be a short video interview for you to complete by 31 May. In you are successful, there will be a face to face interview on 6 June in London.
Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.
We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society.
We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
