We are currently recruiting for an HR Assistant to join our forward thinking and innovative client based on the outskirts of Norwich with some occasional travel to their London office. The job will require all round support of the HR Function across the business including administrative support in areas such as induction of new members of staff, recruitment and HR projects. Due to this, the successful candidate will need to have very strong adaptable administrative skills with high attention to detail. Ideally the postholder will have experience within HR in a similar role but our client would consider someone without this experience if they have very strong administrative skills and a keen interest in HR.

Offer first line support with general HR enquiries and answer queries around employee benefits.
Provide full administrative support through duties such as filing, scanning and data input to assist the HR Coordinator in ensuring that company policies and procedures are adhered to across all areas of the business.
Provide assistance to managers to allow them to complete employee probation reviews and annual appraisals.
Recording, monitoring and reporting sickness and absence trends.
Minute-taking, preparing agendas and supporting with HR projects as required to meet the needs of the business.
Ensure accurate personnel records are maintained through Cloud-based HR database and employee files

Required key skills & experience include:
High level of attention to detail and accuracy
Experienced IT user (Excel, Word)
Minimum 1 years' experience in an administrative role
High levels of discretion and confidentiality as appropriate.
CIPD qualification is not essential, but is desirable
Great communication skills, perfect grammar and an excellent telephone manner
A proactive team-player with a willingness to broaden your knowledge and to take on additional responsibility

If you have the required skills and experience we would be keen to see your application. For further information please contact Caroline Meeson.
