Are you interested in pursuing a career in HR or looking to gain further HR experience to progress your career? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior HR Assistant in Warwick Business School (WBS).
The successful applicant will work on a variety of interesting and challenging HR issues in a busy and fast-paced dynamic department. Interpersonal skills are key in this role, so you must be able to demonstrate your willingness to be involved in a diverse range of HR tasks to ensure a customer-focused HR service for this busy department.
The successful candidate should have excellent written and verbal communication skills with an ability to liaise on HR matters and to persuade and influence. This role directly engages with all staff in Warwick Business School as well as other stakeholders such as central HR. You must also be able to problem solve and deal with sensitive and highly confidential issues, both in person and via the WBS HR email inbox.
Acting as a first point of contact in responding to and addressing a wide range of departmental HR enquires as well as determining those which need escalation to the HR Officer and previous experience and/or an ability to work as part of a team is essential. You also need to be able to work independently and use your initiative to manage your workload and therefore having decision making skills is key. In addition to this an ability to prioritise work, accurately undertake and deliver this within tight timelines and to track and monitor the progress of the work is vital.
