Do you have a good level of education, high level of numeracy and experience of filing, record keeping and providing accurate information? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a HR & Recruitment Administrator.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a HR & Recruitment Administrator with good office IT skills and strong attention to detail to join their Human Resources team.

Your challenge? To provide an efficient administration service to support all recruitment and HR transactional work. That means ensuring the accuracy and integrity of data input onto the HR/Payroll system and processing employee information for starters, casual workers and leavers. It also means preparing offer letters and contracts of employment and helping with the on-boarding process for new staff. Dealing with routine enquiries, playing your part in the recruitment process, creating personnel files for new employees, building relationships with colleagues across the organisation and administering the DBS process – all are part of the mix in this interesting and varied role.

To succeed, you’ll need to be well-organised, self-motivated and comfortable working unsupervised at times. Adept at planning and managing your own workload, handling routine tasks efficiently and accurately also comes naturally to you. What’s more, you work well as part of a team and have the verbal and written communication skills it takes to quickly gain the respect of colleagues and managers alike. A working knowledge of Microsoft Office, Outlook and Excel, plus a high level of numeracy is also required, while a CIPD qualification, or evidence of working towards it, would be useful, but is not essential.

This post is offered as a six month fixed term contract in the first instance.

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £19,570 will apply to this post, subject to the post holder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' annual leave plus statutory bank holidays and a contributory pension scheme after a qualifying period.

So, get inspired today. Visit our website and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.
