One of our partner clients, based in Lancashire, are looking to recruit a HR MANAGER to their management team.

Based out of their Chorley office, this is an opportunity for a strong-willed, articulate HR Professional to join a forward-thinking management team at an exciting time of their development.

The Ideal Candidate MUST have....

  • CIPD Level 5 as an absolute minimum
  • Experience - you must be confident when dealing with strong-minded department heads
  • Patience and resilience - this won't be an easy job!
  • The HIGHEST of standards - the MD/Owner is extremely hands on!

It is the medium term vision of the business to bring their HR function fully in-house; currently, they utilise an external HR Advisor with insurance cover - so experience of in-sourcing services would be advantageous (please detail this in your covering letter if possible).

What about core professional competancies?

It goes without saying; for this role, due to the seniority of it in the business, you MUST have:

  • Excellent and robust communication skills at all levels, both oral and written.
  • A highly organised approach to work; being flexible and having the ability to work to tight deadlines.
  • A positive, proactive nature and self-motivated.
  • Meticulous attention to detail.
  • The ability to manage confidential information in an appropriate manner.
  • Strong Microsoft Office skills, including Excel, Word and Outlook.

So, all that sounds exciting - and a full job specification is available to candidates who, after applying, pass the initial shortlisting process.

What else could your new role entail?

You will be...

  • Liaising with the external HR Advisor (with a view to assuming their responsibilities in due course).
  • Administrating all Group HR policies and procedures.
  • Acting as first point of contact regarding all HR enquiries, escalating as appropriate.
  • General HR administration.
  • To provide Management information when required.
  • Maintaining accurate HR records, including Gender Pay Gap reporting.
  • Management of the employee lifecycle (e.g. recruitment, departure, improvement plans etc).
  • Coordinating HR processes (e.g. maternity/paternity; absence; redundancy; grievance and disciplinary).
  • Liaising with the external Payroll Bureau.
  • Providing information / processing childcare vouchers in line with individual salary sacrifice details.
  • Processing of maternity/paternity/adoption pay in line with statutory policies.
  • Processing of holiday requests and sickness absence notifications.
  • Maintaining illness absence records and eligibility for sick pay.

This really is an exciting opportunity for a talented, skillful HR professional looking for a new role in one of the North Wests' most established companies.
