HR Administration Assistant (part-time)

We have an opportunity for a part time HR Administration Assistant (18.75 hrs/week, 3.75 hrs/day) to join our HR team based in the head office in Almondsbury, Bristol BS32 4DF. At the time of writing, we are predominantly working from home, but there is an appetite to return to the collaborative and social environment that is a Hydrock office, when it is safe to do so (although we expect a blend of office and home working in the future).

Hydrock is an independently owned multidisciplinary consultancy, of circa 500 staff, operating out of 16 offices in the UK. We are one of The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For and a champion of wellbeing (latest winner of Health and Wellbeing Leader of the Year award at the NCE100). We believe part of our success is looking after our people and our values help create a unique, dynamic, working environment. Feedback from our client listening programme and employee surveys indicates we are great to work with, whether providing a service to a client or rewarding employment to an employee!

Before March 2020 we would have been raving about our wonderful head office site, set in over 100 acres of the great outdoors, and all the great stuff that comes with it but for now that’s not as relevant, while we are all essentially working from home. However, we still have our culture and our people and the wellbeing champions in particular are busy dreaming up and delivering opportunities to help keep people happy and healthy.

When we do return to the office, this location has excellent links to the M5 and on site car parking. We also have great facilities for cyclists and many of our employees ride in from Bristol and surrounds. Some benefits you might not expect include opportunities to work out over lunch on our substantial site overlooking the Severn (casual fitness classes, running, cycling) and an annual wellbeing bonus.

Your role will include:

  • Day to day management of employees’ data on the HR information system and any other systems used by HR.
  • Process e-forms and self-service e-requests.
  • Uploading documents to the appropriate records on Cezanne and filing emails on the shared computer drive.
  • Manage administrative tasks linked to online onboarding (some of the tasks: give new starters access to the HRIS, ensure forms are completed, setting up new starters).
  • Issue employee correspondence such as contractual changes documentation and reference letters.
  • Responsibility for the HR inbox; dealing with a range of queries/requests, liaising with HR colleagues on more complex requests.
  • Manage the probation process via Clear Review.
  • Produce ad hoc basic HR data reports.
  • Assist with any HR administrative tasks or project work, as required.
  • What skills and attributes are we looking for:

  • Competent in the use of Microsoft Office with a very good working knowledge of Excel.
  • Excellent attention to detail.
  • Keen interest in data management as an established administrator.
  • Ability to manage day-to-day tasks in a confident, positive and professional manner.
  • Good organisational skills to prioritise and manage a varied workload.
  • Good interpersonal skills.
  • What you can expect in general

    Inspired and motivated colleagues. A great team, office and employer (check out our 2020 wrap up video here.) A genuine opportunity to achieve and to be recognised and rewarded merit.

    The remuneration package will include a competitive salary, employer pension contribution, 25 days annual leave (with the option to buy/sell up to five days), well-being bonus and a wide variety of flexible benefits. There are also little things like a paid day off for good causes and free fresh fruit in every office.

    We have several team, office, regional and divisional events but ‘Challenge Day’ is when the whole company comes together for a paid day of fun! You can check out our most recent Challenge Day here!

    A career with Hydrock offers you the chance to achieve your potential in a strongly people-focused and values-led business that provides great opportunities for professional and personal development.

    A place where we can all thrive

    At Hydrock we value our diversity and place wellbeing and inclusion for all at the heart of our culture. Offering our people flexibility is an important factor in achieving these aims, so we encourage you to talk to us about the working arrangement that best enables you to balance your personal commitments with your responsibilities at work. Please let us know your current and/or desired flexible working arrangements in your covering letter, so we can discuss how this could work for you in this role.
