HR Generalist

Location – Paignton – On Site
Benefits – 25 days annual leave (increasing to 30 with length of service), 4 x life insurance, employer pension contributions starting from 6% increasing to 14%, Private Medical Insurance, & Medicash plan.

The Client:
Curo are collaborating with a Global Company in the Tech Sector. They specialise in innovative products and services, which address the test, assurance, and automation challenges of new generation technologies: 5G, SD-WAN, Cloud, Autonomous Vehicles and beyond. Their customers span across communications, transportation, government, defence, aerospace, financial services, healthcare, retail, and many more. They are driving forward the groundbreaking technologies that are changing the world.

The Candidate:
This position would suit a qualified (CIPD level 3 or above) candidate, who is looking to put the theory into practice, or someone qualified by experience. The business offers the opportunity to progress and upskill. Candidates will need some hands-on HR experience, and a basic understanding of employment law. You will be playing a supportive role to the HR Manager & Director, and be working on a small and friendly HR & Admin Team. Excellent communication ability is required, as building relationships with the greater team is important. A high level of accuracy, and organisational ability, is absolutely essential. You will be managing multiple priorities, so this would suit a candidate who has worked in a commercial environment, and is used to juggling tasks in tandem. Often the nature of this role means that tasks will need to be picked up and put down, so your to-do list is unlikely to ever be complete. As such, this role requires an individual who likes to be busy, and is fine with having an ever-evolving list of priorities.

The Role:
As a true HR Generalist, you will support all areas of the employment lifecycle, across the EMEA regions. You will have ownership over tasks and projects, but with no two days the same; you will have an adaptable approach to your workload and demands. If you are motivated by positive challenges and change in a close-knit, supportive team, this could be the role for you. The team has a very friendly feel despite the global nature of the business, so you will have a clear line of communication with the greater team. They hold ISO accreditation, so work to set standards, and the quality and accuracy of work is very important.

We are ideally looking for a full-time candidate, however we will consider part-time candidates on a case-by-case basis. This role is fully on-site in the Paignton office, as relationship-building with the team is crucial. The aim of this role is to be the ‘go-to’ person, who can react to issues on-site as they arise.
