There will also be the opportunity to become involved in T&Cs, policy formulation and providing support to line managers with people issues.

• Continuous improvement of HR policy and procedure, including developing new ones in line with changing legislation.
• Liaise with internal management to ensure an effective staff training programme is developed & delivered
• Dealing with grievances and disciplinary procedures
• Disciplinary and grievance procedures
• Recruiting shop floor people, skilled and unskilled
• Produce offer letters and contracts for new starters / potential employees
• Producing monthly information reports to the Directors as requested.


• Previous experience as an HR Officer in a generalist role is essential, as is a minimum level 3 CIPD qualification (would consider part qualified or working towards)
• Proven knowledge of employment law and best practice in recruitment, selection, inductions, and staff training.

We look forward to your application, which we would hope would be accompanied by a covering letter detailing why you feel you fit this type of role, and this type of company.
