Do you have lots of enthusiasm, great problem-solving skills and competency using Microsoft Office applications? Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that’s open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join the University of East London as a Human Resources Apprentice and gain a level 3 qualification in HR support.
It’s a particularly exciting time here at the University as, under our 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, we’re committed to providing students with the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world, including increasing the diversity of the talent pipeline, particularly for Industry 4.0 jobs. We also want to position our east London location as being at both the heart of a major global gateway and the local community. And, right now, we’re looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our HR team and start building a career in human resources.
A great opportunity to contribute to the effective running of our HR team, we’ll look to you to provide first class administrative, logistical and customer service support to assist with a variety of human resources activities. A typical day might see you updating and maintaining HR systems and information, responding to emails received on our HR top desk system or getting quotes for recruitment advertising and other resourcing activities. From undertaking basic admin duties like photocopying and collating materials through to formatting job descriptions, posting jobs on our job board and assisting the Resourcing Manager with projects to improve recruitment procedures and efficiency, one thing’s for sure - you won’t be short of interest and variety.
Used to using your own initiative to solve problems, you enjoy working collaboratively in a team where suggesting improvements to processes is positively encouraged. What’s more, you’re great at constructing and conveying clear, concise communications to high professional standards and creating a positive impression face-to-face, on the phone and via email and other forms of written and verbal communication. And, if you have experience of working in a team in a busy office where you delivered a high standard of service to members of a team and other stakeholders, even better, although this is not as important your positive ‘can-do’ approach.
So, if you have what we are looking for and are keen to learn and further develop, get in touch.
At the University of East London, we aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a working environment at the heart of a dynamic region with excellent transport links. You can look forward to a warm, sincere welcome, genuine camaraderie and mobility in an institution led with passion, visibility and purpose. Your impact, resilience and sense of collegiality will directly contribute to the University’s future and those of the students whose lives you will touch and change forever. We also offer a great range of benefits including pension, family friendly policies and an on-site nursery and gym at our Docklands Campus.
