Current Vacancies

Here our the latest vacancies at Matrix. You can apply by emailing us your CV. 

Human Resources Administrator

As an HR administrator, your role is a mixture of admin and HR, also known as human resources and personnel.

The proportions of each will vary according to the organisation, department and your own background and talents.

So, what will I actually be doing?

You will be expected to undertake some or all of the following:

  • Be the first point of contact for all HR-related queries
  • Administer HR-related documentation, such as contracts of employment
  • Ensure the relevant HR database is up to date, accurate and complies with legislation
  • Assist in the recruitment process
  • Liaise with recruitment agencies
  • Set up interviews and issue relevant correspondence

The finer details…

Normally, you will work a standard 35-40 hour week. However, you may be required to work extra hours at busy times.

You’ll be mainly office-based, although you may have to travel to other branches if it’s a larger organisation. You may also visit training providers.

Prospects are good if you’re looking to progress from HR administrator up the HR hierarchy into senior HR assistant and officer/adviser roles.

You’ll find HR opportunities in all kinds of organisation, including banks, local government, health services, airlines, hotels, retail organisations and manufacturing industry.

However, there is keen competition for vacancies, especially for inexperienced graduates. Gaining CIPD qualifications or NVQs/SVQs will help your promotion prospects.

Some multinational companies offer the chance to work abroad. Once you’re experienced, you could also set up your own specialist consultancy in an area such as recruitment.

These figures are for guidance only.

  • HR administrators earn around £15,000 to £18,000 a year
  • Starting salaries for HR officers can be between £18,000 and £25,000 a year
