HR Administrator

Two Fixed Term Positions available

12 Month Fixed Term Contract with the Employee Relations team
6 Month Fixed Term Contract with the Resourcing Team

At FCDO Services, the work you do will mean more. Join our Human Resources Administration Team, and you can contribute to this important work while making significant progress in your career.

Provide vital support across HR teams
You’ll provide customer oriented administration support within our Policy and Employee Relations and Recruitment Team. A key part of the role will be to act as the first point of contact to handle general HR enquiries face to face, by email and over the phone. You will also be expected to provide support to the HR Business Partners and wider HR teams to deliver Key HR priorities.

Take your admin skills to a whole new level
We’re looking for someone who has already built up excellent admin skills while working in a customer-facing environment. Previous HR or recruitment experience would be good but is not essential. In fact, this would make the perfect opportunity for someone looking to make the first step in their HR career.

Given the varied and fast-moving nature of the role, it’s important that you can respond proactively to changing priorities and have a calm, organised approach. You will also need to be a strong all-round communicator who works well as part of a team. In the same breath, you’ll help us to uphold our customer promise: to be reliable, responsive and build relationships.

And have a career you can be proud of
At FCDO Services, we keep information, assets and people safe all around the world. Our customers, who include the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, look to us to respond with speed, agility and innovation to their ever changing security challenges. This gives every job here added significance including yours. Become part of our diverse HR team, and you can look forward to a varied and challenging career while doing work that you can be truly proud of from day one.

All our employees must be security cleared before joining us, so you’ll need to undergo a vetting process if you’re successful in your application. This role would require you to undergo Security Clearance Vetting (SC). You can find out more about vetting on our website.
