- Southampton, Hampshire
Job Title: HR Admin Superstar Location: Southampton Salary: Competitive Hours: 40 Hours per week The company are a fastmoving technology business undergoing rapid growth and is one of the leading providers of employee benefits solutions to employers. Yes, thats right: they deliver our product to HR teams across the length and breadth of the country, and you have a unique opportunity to come and be part of the HR team supporting the team supporting the HR teams supporting the you get the idea! At the heart of everything they do, they believe that work should be a great place to be for absolutely everyone, and the HR teams primary responsibility is to work closely with managers and employees right across the business to deliver an engaged and focused workforce who are passionate about their Mission and Culture, Achieving Together, Delivering and just Making them Great. (These points relate to some of our business values, which are hugely important to us, and which they will talk to you about in more detail if you come and meet them at interview stage.) They are a business which is growing at pace, which means that we need to strengthen their core HR team and bring in an HR Administrator. Now, lots of entry level HR roles will insist that you have previous HR experience despite being an entry level position. They know. This isnt one of them. In the nicest possible way, they are really not that bothered about what youve done previously its what youre going to come and do that they are interested in. There are, however, some prerequisites for the role that are absolutely essential, as follows: Superhuman organisation skills.One thing you need to know about how they work here is that they work FAST. Tasks will come in from all directions and youll need to be able to juggle them effortlessly, working at speed to turn around documentation and remaining outwardly unflappable. If you want to be just a number in a team then to be honest: this probably isnt the job for you. Youll have a large amount of autonomy (which they like to think is a really, really positive thing), and as a result youll need to be comfortable working independently and taking accountability for your own workload. A thorough understanding of MS Office.Yes, its an HR role, not an IT role, but being able to effectively use MS Word and Excel (plus occasionally PowerPoint) will make your life so much easier. They will test this at interview, so whilst you dont need to be an expert, it is going to be important that you can demonstrate basic word processing and spreadsheet manipulation abilities. An ability to respect confidentiality requirements.They work in an amazing, supermodern open plan office, with a wide range of teams who work really closely together. Whilst they think all of these are huge positives, it is absolutely imperative that the successful candidate is able to maintain complete confidentiality on all peoplerelated matters at all times whether thats in a crossfunctional meeting, or down the pub on a Friday night. Stand out communication skills.From Day 1 youll be communicating with stakeholders both internal and external at all levels from graduate employees to the CEO and Chairman. Youll need to do so with confidence and integrity whilst living and breathing their culture and their Cornerstones. Youll also be adept at building relationships and quickly obtaining the trust and respect of employees across the business. Incredible attention to detail.Think it doesnt really matter if you make a minor typo in a letter to an employee? Well, now imagine that letter is confirming their change in salary and youve just added an extra 0 to the end The Chief People Officer, who is a selfconfessed pedant when it comes to the importance of sending out accurate documentation, will grill you on this if you progress to interview stage so be prepared! Arguably most importantly youll bring with you passion, enthusiasm and a desire to just get stuck in.Whilst well be looking to get you involved in the full range of HR activities, there is no getting away from the fact that some of your duties are going to be rather less scintillating. Were not looking for someone who turns up their nose when we ask them to empty the office dishwasher were looking for someone who turns around and says Sure. While Im there, shall I do the second dishwasher as well? And if you can empty dishwashers and get involved in recruitment, training, reference checks, filing, meeting planning, compiling documentation, supporting managers, etc. etc. etc then you might just be the perfect match. In return for all of the above, they can offer you what is simply, bar none, one of the best places you could ever imagine working, filled with awesome people just like you who are on a mission to make a difference and deliver something truly amazing. They are open to absolutely all kind of working patterns, we are all about flexibility here! Want to work parttime? Thats fine with us. Want to work during school hours....again, thats fine with us. Want to work term time only....again....we are so open to this. Want a placement? Get in touch! It is completely up to you, as long as the job gets done. Let us know in your cover letter what suits you and we will look to accommodate. Candidates with the experience or relevant job titles of; HR Administrator, HR Admin, Administrator, Admin, Support, Assistant, Human Resources Administrator, Human Resources Administrator, HR Consultant may also be considered for this role.
