A great opportunity has arisen for a proactive, fast-paced HR Assistant or HR/Business Studies degree graduate with some solid work experience evidencing a strong work ethic, who’s looking to progress quickly to be an HR Advisor.

This development role is with a successful Frome based manufacturing organisation.   This is a true generalist role supporting both manufacturing/production and support staff, so there will be real variety in this position.  As with many manufacturing roles, there is a need to work on site, as this role will need to be highly visible with shop floor colleagues who don’t have access to a PC whilst working.

You will work towards operating at all levels within the business and critical to this will be building strong relationships with key customers to influence and embed change.    This is a generalist HR role, including: induction, training, policies, systems, providing support on resolving complex employee relations casework especially with the production side of the business and varied HR projects.

Person Specification:

  • Graduates with a degree in Human Resources or Business Studies with modules in HR with a minimum of one year’s experience preferably in an HR Administration or recruitment role. We will also look at graduate candidates who have proved themselves as being an achiever in other industry sectors and roles i.e. retail or restaurant management.
  • The applicants must be organised, good communicators, flexible, with the ability to interact effectively with people at all levels within the organisation.
  • An understanding of employment law is essential along with excellent communication skills with the ability to influence both on the shop floor and management.
  • Excellent attention to detail and a good understanding of systems and processes.
  • Must be able to evidence a strong work ethic and going the extra mile to make a difference.
  • What is most important will be your ‘can do’ attitude, striving to do the best possible job, to be resilient with buckets of positive energy.

This is a great opportunity for an ambitious candidate, keen to develop quickly within the fun, fast-pace and friendly HR team and add value within an expanding successful international organization.
