If you are a confident and self-motivated individual who would like to join a responsive and effective HR team, we would like to hear from you.

You will be able to demonstrate exceptional communication skills both written and verbal, with a good eye for detail. You will need to be proactive with a flexible approach and have the ability to work with changing priorities during periods of pressured workload. Naturally, you will be able to build and maintain relationships with a variety of people across the University. 

The role is varied, as you will be the first line of contact for both internal and external customers contacting HR. We offer telephone and email support to customers and use a range of IT systems such as the central HR database and a ticketing system.

The expected hours of work for this full-time role are 9am - 5pm. 

The typical starting salary for this role will be £25,285 (spinal point 17 on the University Level 1-6 pay scale), unless you have significant experience in a similar role. Staff increment one spinal point each year, up to the top of the Level.

Please see the job description below for further details. When appointed, your job title will be 'AskHR Officer'.

What we offer:

Our HR department works across Highfield Campus and One Guildhall Square, but your main work location will be One Guildhall Square. Both offices have easy access to public transport, restaurants, coffee shops and a University gym.

There will also be an opportunity to work flexibly from home, with an expectation that you attend the office at least once a week and at other times when required. 

As part of our commitment to your well-being, we offer an occupational pension scheme and generous holidays (starting at 20 days annual leave plus 8 bank holidays and 6 University closure days).  Staff also have access to our state-of-the-art on-campus sports, arts, and culture facilities and access to a number of University employee-discount schemes.
