  • Manage interaction with candidates, including offer and rejection communications, processing screening and reference checks, and maintaining HR/Recruitment systems
  • Contribute to projects that develop the service in line with the priorities of the HR Division and the wider strategic direction of the University
  • Actively participate as a member of the Resourcing team, attending and contributing to Team meetings and working across the team to assist with peaks in workload or to share knowledge and skills.

About you

The ideal candidate for this role will join us with:

  • Extensive experience of providing administrative support (preferably gained in an HR environment) and of providing advice and guidance to management (ideally on matters relating to HR / recruitment);
  • The ability and confidence to analyse problems at an operational level, identify root causes and propose appropriate solutions based on documented procedures.
  • An innovative and flexible approach, with the ability to plan your workload over the short to medium term, contributing to wider project work as required.
  • Evidence of strong communication and customer service skills, with the ability to successfully present information through a variety of communication methods and tools.
