The Company

An award winning, industry leader with an established presence across their sector.

The Role

The Human Resources Coordinator/Officer will manage various HR functions including recruitment, onboarding and offboarding, staff leave, performance management, staff procurement, and ensuring compliance with government regulations.

  • The coordinator will post job advertisements, screen resumes, conduct interviews, and manage job offers and the onboarding process. They will conduct orientation sessions, handle all necessary paperwork, coordinate IT setup for new hires, and manage the exit processes for departing staff.
  • They will track staff leave requests and balances, ensuring compliance with company policies. The coordinator will also manage the performance review schedule, assist with goal setting, and oversee evaluations.

  • Good verbal and written communication skills
  • Strong organisational and time management skills
  • Attention to detail and accuracy
