  • You will be a whizz on Excel and you are able to assist with all of our weekly & monthly reports to help us manage our headcount process and budget reconciliations.
  • You will help us organise our own internal events as well as attending industry ones. The logistics can be quite difficult but this is where you can really help; ensuring we have an eye catching stand, great merchandise and coming up with cool ideas to ensure we’re capturing the best talent.

 Who you are: 

  • You have previous experience of working in an administration role, preferably within a previous HR or Talent Team

  • You have the ability to demonstrate high level of enthusiasm and a proactive attitude.
  • You have the ability to thrive in a fast-paced high growth environment. 

We can’t wait to receive your application. But before you send it to us, here are some helpful tips to make sure your application is as strong as it can be. 

  • Have you set out why this role is a good match for your career aspirations and that you have the skills and experience required? We want you to be as clear about your future ambitions as we are and whilst we encourage people to learn, develop and grow, you will need to hit the ground running.
  • Have you checked spelling and grammar? We have high standards and you don’t want to miss out because of something as easily correctable as a typo.
