HR Officer

Based inEdinburgh

Published17th July 2017

Salary£27500 to £27500 p/a



If you have a generalist HR background and feel passionate about working for a values-driven, customer-centred employer, then this may be the perfect role for you!

This charity is a leader in its field and its HR team is key to helping them grow and develop. They are currently looking for an experienced, generalist HR Advisor to join their professional team on a fixed-term contract until February 2018.  Ideally, you will possess a degree-level qualification in HR and/or CIPD membership. 

Your remit will be to deliver a high-quality service to line managers and individuals, offering customer-centric advice and support, whilst retaining a business focus and ensuring compliance with legislation at all times.  As an HR generalist, you should demonstrate significant experience and up-to-date knowledge in the following areas:-

·         Recruitment;

·         Absence management and occupational health;

·         Employee relations;

·         Payroll and pensions administration

A sound understanding of employment legislation and HR “best practice” is essential, as is a practical, customer-focused approach to policies and procedures and experience of stakeholder interaction.  An awareness of volunteer management would also be highly beneficial, but whilst previous experience of working for a charity is desirable, it is certainly not essential. 

First-class communication skills are a pre-requisite, with the proven ability to conduct difficult conversations when required.  Part of your remit will require you to analyse complex data and produce and analyse reports, so strong Excel skills would be extremely advantageous.  You should also demonstrate a well-organised, team-orientated approach to work, with the ability to embrace change and motivate others.

Please note that due to the multi-site nature of this organisation, there may be some travel and a current UK driving licence is essential.

If you have the relevant skills and background for this exciting opportunity, please send your CV to Rhian Lewis.
