Take your skills to the next level as deputy of our HR Transaction Team
Ready for a varied supervisory role at the heart of a busy team? As a Senior HR Advisor, you’ll build your skills and knowledge as you deal with different transactional matters daily.
Our front-line HR advisory service supports colleagues across the Council, giving expert advice and guidance. Supervising a six-strong team, you’ll ensure that it provides high quality customer service, responding to diverse queries. Together, you’ll advise on HR policies and procedures via phone, video calls and email, while taking on a range of related administrative tasks. Employment changes, pay, pensions, resignations – you’ll tackle them all efficiently.
Day to day, you’ll be updating HR records, liaising with Payroll colleagues and supporting improvements in processes and self-service. That means familiarising yourself with a number of HR systems and policies, while building great working relationships. If you’ve got what it takes – including motivation, good organisation and exceptional people skills – we’ll give you the support to achieve CIPD qualification (if you don’t have this already). Meanwhile, you’ll learn and progress as deputy to the HR Transaction Team Leader.
