Position title
HR Coordinator (progressing in time to be Head of HR)

Are you a recent Human Resources graduate who is looking to develop into a HR Manager? This Leicester based role could be ideal.

The group has six different brands – each with their own culture and requirements -totalling around 250 staff- plus another 500 or so sub-contractors.

There are 2 people in the HR team, the Manager and an assistant who is very good on the admin / payroll side- and is happy doing this.

With a view to succession planning, they are looking for a graduate to join them as a HR Coordinator initially, with a view to taking over as Head of HR in time (no set timescale it would depend how you progress).

Salary will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as you progress- there may be other opportunities with higher starting salaries, but do they have the scope of this one? And the pay rises will be significant ones as you develop your skills.

You will be learning the ropes, from payroll to recruitment, to onboarding, to managing the database- all sorts. You will be helping on the strategic side too- as this will be a key part when you take over. As will writing policies, managing relationships, looking at succession planning etc.

In addition, you will be able to manage your own project which is looking after 8 apprentices-  looking at their payroll, monitoring training, writing reports. And developing relationships with their training provider.

An HR degree is essential, with knowledge of employment law etc. While CIPD qualification is preferred it’s not essential (and you will be supported with working towards it if you like). You will need to be comfortable with holding your own with senior staff in meetings in time.

You will be in the office most of the time but could work from home 1-2 days a week. There may be some travel to other sites, so it is preferred that you have your own transport.

You will need good all-round knowledge of HR and some kind of related work experience- whether that be admin related or ideally a placement in HR.

Only candidates who are eligible to work in the UK without restriction can be considered.
