We have an exciting opening for an HR Administrator to join our centralised HR admin team based in Prospect House in the centre of Norwich. Working flexibly and cooperatively together, you will provide great customer service to staff, managers and the rest of your HR colleagues. This varied and busy job will encompass the administration involved throughout the life cycle of an employee and the policies and processes involved.

Attention to detail is vital as you are responsible for updating databases, preparing letters and contracts, keep records up to date, setting up new starters etc. If you are interested in working in a busy deadline-driven role and enjoy working in a small and friendly team, you must demonstrate experience of the following:

  • Accuracy/attention to detail and cross-checking facts
  • Inputting data onto internal systems
  • Answering the phones, dealing with and prioritising enquiries
  • Sending out confirmation letters
  • Updating employee information
  • Dealing with enquiries for payments, holiday pay, sickness
  • Following clear processes and procedures
  • Changing priorities and responding to ad hoc urgent requests
  • Keeping absolute confidentiality at all times

Shorter hours worked over 5 days a week are available as an option for those interested in this opportunity on a part-time basis.

To be clear, although this administration role is working in an HR team, we are looking for a long-term administrator and not someone who would see this as a quick stepping stone to get into the world of HR. Possibilities of career progression would be available but not in the foreseeable future.


  • Basic starting between £16k and £18k
  • Full 25 days paid holiday + statutory bank holidays (if full time)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Archant Gold – matched charity fundraising
  • Give as You Earn – tax-free charity giving scheme
  • Ongoing training and personal performance reviews


As diligent attention to detail is key to this role, please pay particular attention to the next bit… Apply by completing an application form and attaching a covering letter clearly describing your motivation for applying and relevant experience. Send it to and put ‘Administrator’ in the subject header. Closing date for all applications is Friday 24th November 2017. We are looking to interview w/c 27th November and for the successful candidate to join us at the start of 2018.
