An opportunity has arisen for an HR Administrator to join our team on a permanent basis.  Our HR team provides support to two specialist regional units: Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTPSE) and the South East Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU).

As part of these units, we play a key role in protecting the communities of the South East from the threats of serious organised crime and terrorism.

In this role, you will work with officers and staff, acting as the first point of contact for a variety of people matters.

To be successful, you should be able and comfortable relating to a wide range of people. You should also have sound experience of working in an administrative role.  Alongside this, we are looking for somebody that has excellent communication, organisational, and time-management skills.

We are dedicated to supporting continual professional development and, ideally, we are seeking someone who is passionate about a career in HR.

In return, we can offer flexibility in terms of your working week.  Our ways of working are a blend of three days working in the office and two days working from home.

Please note that this role is part of a national, regional, and local network and you may be required to travel for business purposes to other sites occasionally.

The office base location is difficult to access via public transport. Therefore, we are seeking somebody that holds a UK driving licence and has access to a vehicle ideally.

Security is of paramount importance to us due to the nature of our work and, therefore, it will be necessary to pass and maintain vetting level SC.  In order to achieve this, you must be a British National and have resided in the UK for the past five years. Exemptions apply for overseas or other diplomatic service (with HM Government), and studying abroad.

You can find more information about security vetting here.

As an employer, we support and encourage flexible working, and welcome applications from those interested in working either full or part time (ideally over five days a week to maintain resilience).  The working pattern for this role is three days in the office with flexibility to work from home two days each week.
