Job Description
We have an exciting opportunity to join a well-established, family run business as a HR Administrator, or HR Officer, in Penrith.

About the Company:
Our client has been producing some of the best sweet treats in Cumbria for many years, supplying both local delicatessens & cafes, to national retailers across the UK. You’ll be sure to have seen their products around!
Due to growth of the business, they now require a HR Administrator, or HR Officer, to provide administrative support to the Directors and assisting with the day-to-day operations of the human resources functions and duties.
They operate as a family run business; therefore, the culture and ethos very much reflect this. If you want to become ‘part of the family’ we would be delighted to hear from you!

Typical duties will include:
  • Maintaining personnel records by updating the HR database with personnel information changes and new hires.
  • Prepare and maintain employment records, contracts, and other HR documents.
  • Assist in the recruitment process by posting job openings, scheduling interviews, and communicating with candidates.
  • Prepare recruitment-related documents such as offer letters and employment contracts.
  • Process paperwork for new hires, including employment agreements and benefits.
  • Conduct exit interviews and process employee separations.
  • Respond to employee inquiries and requests for information in a timely manner.
  • Assist in the preparation of HR reports, audits, and filings.
  • As a small business, telephone answering and directing calls accordingly will be required when covering breaks and busy periods.
This is a full time role working Monday to Friday.
Flexible start and finish times can be agreed between 8am/9am and 4pm/5pm.

Salary and Benefits:
Salary will be dependent upon experience between £27k - £32k.
Various benefits on offer, including discounts on all products!

Experience required:
We aren’t necessarily looking for qualifications, although CIPD would be an advantage, however; full consideration will be given to candidates with HR admin experience and those with transferable skills in administration.

If you are interested in speaking further about this vacancy, we'd love to hear from you.
