|Highlighting the ‘Person’ in personnel
We are looking for someone with enthusiasm and a genuine interest in people. This is an exciting opportunity to become a permanent and valued member of our HR & Training Team operating in a fast moving environment.
The role offers a mix of formal professional education – with the opportunity to attain the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Level 3 Certificate in People Practice – together with hands-on learning working as a member of our HR & Training Team in each of the variety of activities.
As an equal member of the Team you will be supporting our Divisional Teams with day-to-day people management, handling the challenges together as they arise.
Operating in the HR & Training environment will offer the chance to enhance employee engagement from pre-employment through employee development all the way to post employment.
Our aim at Lindum is to ensure each person is treated and respected as an individual who is encouraged to be the best they can be; the HR & Training Team play a key role in making that happen.
Lindum believes ‘the difference is our people’ – because our most valuable resource is our people. The HR & Training Team ensure they are suitably skilled, supported, productive and engaged. We aim to continually improve what we do to achieve our aim of making the most of our people, remaining professional but personal at all times.
What we’re looking for
Above all we are seeking someone with the right attitude; with an interest in people and a desire to help them do well.
Our success comes from the strength of our Team, we need an individual who can join our Team to enhance it both willing to learn and share ideas to keep us improving.
It is a busy, ever changing environment, so you must be able to work flexibly, sometimes under pressure, while still maintaining vital accuracy. – We can’t always make things better, but mistakes and errors can make a situation a whole lot worse.
The right candidate will need to demonstrate a high degree of empathy for others. They must be a confident communicator able to establish trust in others.
Personable, professional and well-presented, the role will inevitably involve dealing with challenging and sometimes sensitive situations, all of which must be handled calmly and confidentially.
Employment or voluntary work, involving a high standard of accuracy would be advantageous.
Given the sometimes delicate nature of situations being handled, successful candidates would need to have enjoyed some degree of life experiences, similar to that of a post-graduate. This does not preclude others without a degree from applying, as holding a degree is not a prerequisite of the position and we would welcome applications from others who can offer at least equivalent life experience.
While dealing with people is the main focus operating computer software is unavoidable. Training on our bespoke systems will be provided but a competency using Microsoft Word and Excel would offer an advantage.
A full driving licence is also helpful as meeting our employees’ on-sites or in our other offices is key to treating them as individuals.
Employment Terms and Benefits
The role is full-time, 37 ½ hours per week (8.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday) with flexibility as required. The role is based at our offices on Lindum Business Park on Station Road, North Hykeham.
As well as a rewarding career opportunity, we can offer a competitive package including pension, profit related pay, employee share scheme, employee discounts and free on-site parking as well as personal and professional learning and development opportunities.
