Are you looking for a career in HR? Do you have enviable administration skills and looking to progress in an environment where people genuinely love what they do?

Reporting to the Head of People & Talent, this role will support the wider People & Talent team to deliver exceptional people operations services to everyone in Dennis.  This is an exciting opportunity to work within a friendly and flourishing company and to gain strong insight into a fast-paced media business.

Supporting the People Operations Executive, you’ll take the lead in managing the department’s employee lifecycle administration, which includes invoicing and balancing costs against budget, responding to reference requests, data entry, involvement in onboarding new starters,  drafting all employee correspondence including offer letters, contracts and other employment documentation, booking learning & development sessions and supporting the logistics of our employee engagement initiatives.

You’ll have fantastic organisational and administration skills with razor-sharp attention to detail - and you’ll be comfortable and confident to communicate with people from all levels of the business.

You’ll also have plenty of initiative to problem solve with a real ‘can do’ attitude and the determination to deliver a high standard of service to your client group. Time management and prioritisation will come naturally to you, and you’ll always be calm under pressure.

This is an exciting opportunity to work within a friendly and flourishing company and to gain strong insight into a fast-paced media business.  If you’re the right candidate, you’ll be hungry to learn about all aspects of People and Talent; and if you’re keen to progress your career - then we’ll give you the support to do exactly that - whether that be to support a Business apprenticeship or support toward a level 3 CIPD qualification.

You will have:

  • At least two qualifications, which could include Grade A-C GCSE’s, a level 2 apprenticeship or other relevant qualifications
  • A good understanding of the full HR life cycle from on-boarding to exit would be beneficial
  • A passion/interest in working within a People & Talent department
  • A natural intellect and approach to work
  • Experience in administration or in a support based role and have great organisational skills
  • Alongside excellent interpersonal skills you be a great communicator and have self-motivation and the ability to use your own initiative
  • You won’t be phased by talking to staff at all levels from our board of directors through to interns
