Job Description

A brand-new role has been created by the continual growth of the company for an HR Advisor to join a successful scientific company in Oxford. This is a permanent role where you will be part of a busy HR team with exposure to all areas of the business to support your own career development.
You will be working closely with the HR Group Leader to deliver a Generalist HR service for the benefit across the whole business.  This is a truly generalist opportunity where you will be involved in recruitment, line manager and employee support, payroll, administration and working on specific projects as they continue to grow.  In each of these areas you will be actively involved in matters such as being the first port of call for employees and line managers to provide consultative support.  Or coordinating the full lifecycle of recruitment activity, all the way through the offer process and onboarding.  As this is a generalist role you will be working on, and in some case leading, special projects.  The purpose of this is to give you broad exposure so you are able to gain the skills to move to a more senior position as the company continue to grow.

Desired Skill and Experience: For this role you will need to be at least CIPD Level 3 qualified with experience of working within a generalist role in HR, preferably for a small company.  If this is within another science-based company this is advantageous but not essential.  You will need to be have a high level of attention to detail and strong administration skills for this role, along with the ability to work autonomously within a wider team.
We are looking for someone who is keen and motivated, with a positive mindset and great initiative. You will need to demonstrate a drive for continuous improvement and excitement about training and developing your career. The company offers excellent learning and development opportunities and a positive, busy working environment, alongside a strong salary and benefits package. This is a full-time position based on the Oxford Science Park.
