City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level), from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.

In the last decade City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. During this period City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.


The Human Resources Department is a strategic function which supports City's core business through the development and implementation of policies which underpin our Research, Teaching and Learning and other Academic strategies. The HR department also provides a comprehensive service to City's Schools and Professional Services.

The HR Administration team is a small team within the Department that plays a key role in delivering a range of HR services to staff across City as part of the wider HR Operations team.

In addition, you will be responsible for administering multiple recruitment campaigns with tasks to include posting job adverts, liaising with candidates, arranging interviews, and carrying out pre-employment checks.

Supporting your own client groups, you will be expected to work pro-actively and harmoniously with a wide range of colleagues, both within and outside the HR function to ensure that all administrative activities are executed accurately and efficiently within defined procedures and timescales.

Person Specification

You will have previous experience of working in an HR department, preferably in a role supporting large groups within a complex organisation setting. Experience of using an integrated HR / Payroll database and providing administration across a range of HR processes covering the complete employee life cycle is also desired. 

In addition, you will be a team player with a strong customer focus, with previous experience of managing high volume workload within a fast-paced environment. You will have excellent prioritising skills to work on a range of tasks to deadlines. Attention to detail in all correspondence and data entry is essential.
