  • Role Description

    We are looking for someone to join our team as a HR Systems Officer.

    The HR Systems team provides the University with systems and processes that support people-related processes such as recruitment, employment administration, and learning and development. We work particularly closely with colleagues in HR, IT and Finance, but also provide direct support to staff and students across the University using our systems.

    At present the team works with a number of different systems, which makes for a varied workload. Systems in use include ResourceLink, Cornerstone Learning, Kronos and Zendesk. Members of the team are expected to have some knowledge of all systems we operate as well as developing in-depth knowledge in some areas. A multi-year project to update the University's HR systems is expected to start in 2023.

    We also provide management information, complete a number of different data returns, and provide bespoke administrative processes workflows that support the operation of the University. Day to day, we work with tools such as Google Workspace, Dreamweaver, Oracle databases, Tableau, and Zapier. We are looking for someone with a strong level of affinity with IT, combined with organisational and customer service skills. Specific experience with the tools mentioned above isn't required, but some similar experience and an ability and willingness to learn is essential.

    We are a friendly and supportive team who generally work in pairs or small groups to share knowledge and reduce error. Our offices are in Heslington Hall on our University campus, and team members are expected to be on campus for some parts of the week for team building, service delivery and pastoral reasons. Staff can work on campus full-time if they wish, but most members of the HR Systems team work remotely for some days each week, collaborating via Zoom and Slack.

    The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.

    We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.

    We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
