Skills and Experience
Previous experience of supporting in a busy employee relations environment and giving advice to managers is essential, as well as a good understanding and knowledge of current employment legislation and HR best practice.
A strong interest in Human Resources is essential along with good IT skills, a familiarity with Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook) is crucial, and excellent written and spoken communication skills is also essential to the role.
A passion for delivering high quality customer service in the form of HR advice and support is vital, as well as the ability to take ownership of your workload to plan, prioritise and deliver on time.
