Senior HR Coordinator

Cambridge, UK

About the Role

Are you looking to develop your HR career in 2020 and beyond? Are you motivated by having a real impact on a company and its people? Our HR team sits at the heart of the business and we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about delivering an effective and high-quality service to our colleagues. Our Senior HR Coordinator role would suit somebody with existing HR Advisor experience, or someone who has extensive HR administration experience behind them and is looking to take a step up to their next role.

You will have varied responsibilities for a range of tasks to ensure the smooth operation of the HR and recruitment function. These responsibilities will include providing guidance and advice to colleagues across our global offices, developing and implementing HR processes and policies in collaboration with the HR Manager, supporting the finance team in the accurate completion of the monthly payroll and overseeing processes such as internal promotion and performance review rounds. You will also support the HR Manager with a wide range of ongoing projects within the HR function, facets of which you will be tasked with overseeing independently.

In addition, you will support our busy recruitment team which will involve managing the recruitment for either scientific or operational roles. This is therefore a truly generalist role and will suit someone who enjoys spending their time across numerous areas of HR.

Our standard working week is 37.5 hours, Monday to Friday; however, we can also consider applicants looking for part-time hours of 30 hours per week.

Applications are now open and the closing date is Wednesday 10th June. Virtual interviews will be held shortly after.
