The Role:

Benefits Summary:

The role of HR Process Specialist or Expert is to provide administration support to the HR Team and all Etex businesses within a specific aspect of the employee lifecycle.

There are two levels of this role, ‘Specialist’ and ‘Expert’. The differentiators between these positions are based on the technical competency of the role holder. The Expert role holder will be fully skilled on all processes within their discipline, through advanced knowledge and application of the HRIS (HR Information System), to a level they are able to train others. The Expert level role holder shall be trained in other duties so they are able to rotate to cover another HR Process Specialist/Expert for genuine business needs.

The HR Process Specialist or Expert will report into the Country HR Process Manager and provide administration support within their area to all Etex UK businesses as part of the One Etex philosophy. This HR administration role will manage payroll, training, Outplacement and Benefits.

You will be liaising with employees and managers on a regular basis in relation to the above and this will be over the phone, via Microsoft Teams and face to face. As part of our HR presence, you will be required to spend some time at other locations, to ensure we have representation within our customers area.

You will own the co-ordination of admin activities within your nominated area to ensure a positive candidate and employee experience.

Due to the nature of the role, you must be able to multi-task, be organised, have strong Microsoft Office, HRIS, and admin skills. This position will be exposed to various functions and people, so the ability to work all levels, understand how your role fits in, and build positive working relationships, is key (without overcommitting to tasks which fall outside your remit).

There are different terms and conditions of employment across the various employee populations therefore having great attention to detail and retaining knowledge of unique features are important.
