Job Description

Do you love going in to work and not knowing how the day will pan out? You will always go in with a plan but as the day progresses, inevitably things get thrown at you from all directions and you have to drop everything and address them.

If you plan your day meticulously and get frustrated when you're made to digress then this is not for you.

However, if you love diversity, get a buzz out of reacting to the immediate issue without losing sight of what is a priority then we should talk.

Our client is a highly successful food manufacturer, supplying delicious food to the major retailers. Being a manufacturing environment there is a naturally high degree of churn, so the recruitment side of the business is always a high priority. Alongside the 24/7 shift operation there are always people issues.

This HR Officer will have to be capable of juggling grievances and disciplinaries and have inside out knowledge of ER principles. Managers will be looking to you for advice on a daily basis. Very often several times a day, so it is imperative that you can cope with a constant stream of visitors seeking your specialist knowledge.

Don't get me wrong - I am not trying to paint a negative picture of this environment. This site is regarded as a very empathetic employer. Its staff are well-looked after and cared for. However, on a site this large there will always be issues and you will love the constantly changing needs and demands.

Ideally, you will have CIPD qualifications and very definitely you will have worked in a fast-paced environment and be capable of keeping many balls in the air.

If this sounds like the sort of role that would provide you with a purpose in life and a smile on your face, then we would love to see your CV!
