What does the role involve?

Based in our lovely Staines office, our People Services team is the nerve-centre of HR operations across the UK.  Friendly and customer-focused; the team is responsible for on-boarding new employees, pre-employment screening, general employee life cycle processes and supporting our employees. As well as this, responsible for ensuring compliance and contractual processes for existing employees are maintained in line with legislative and regulatory requirements.

In addition, the following skills and experience would be ideal: 

  • Working with business processes relating to compliance, risk, or HR
  • Maintaining and reporting on records of compliance, vetting processes or business/regulatory risks
  • A desire to implement new processes, and improve existing ones
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
