HR Advisor (Part-Time), South Cambridgeshire

We are proud to be recruiting for an early-stage drug development company. The company has a great reputation for being a leader in their field.

An opportunity has arisen for an experienced and highly capable HR Advisor to join their small, cohesive and collaborative HR team. This is a part-time role (around 22.5 hours per week) and there is some flexibility available on the pattern of hours/days per week.

Key responsibilities will include:-

• Providing first line generalist HR support and guidance to managers and employees.
• Assisting the Vice President, HR in the review and development of policies and procedures in support of the HR aspects of the company's strategic plan.
• Building effective relationships with staff at all levels and provide a prompt and reliable HR service to both internal and external stakeholders.
• Administration of key HR processes and services including the performance appraisal process and annual salary review process.
• Recruitment and selection including drafting job adverts, coordinating the application/interview process and conducting HR interviews.
• Managing a full employee lifecycle including compiling contracts, offer letters, pre-employment checks, administration of leavers, exit interviews, employment changes and any other related processes.
• Coordinate on-boarding and deliver HR inductions for all new starters.
• Maintenance of accurate HR information, to include absence management and holiday records, using an HRIS system (PeopleHR) and in line with data protection legislation.
• Effective administration of company benefits schemes whilst acting as the first line of contact for employee queries.
• Assisting with the coordination of training and development as required.

What you will need for the role:-

• Relevant HR experience working in a busy generalist role.
• HR degree or equivalent.
• Good knowledge of employment law and HR policies and procedures.
• Strong Microsoft Office skills (Excel, Word) and knowledge of HRIS systems (experience of using PeopleHR would be an advantage but is not essential).
• High level of integrity with a strong understanding of, and ability to maintain, confidentiality.
• Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills.
• Strong planning and time management skills.
• Pro-active, positive attitude with an ability to find effective solutions to issues.
• A high work ethic with a can-do attitude.
• Experience of working in the biotech or pharmaceutical industry would be an advantage, but is not a prerequisite for the role.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to join this fast-growing biotech company and to contribute to the development of a new class of medicines. With a high level of attention to detail your administrative abilities will be exceptional and you will be a highly organised and effective multi-tasker.

Benefits
We offer a competitive salary along with a contributory pension scheme and other excellent benefits including 25 days holiday, death service x 4, private medical, annual bonus scheme, summer party and free parking.
