Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s main economic development agency. We support Scottish businesses to grow nationally and internationally and access the funds they need to develop. We work with strategic partners to accelerate economic growth and attract investment into Scotland to create a fairer, more inclusive, economy.

The difference you'll make

This is your chance to develop your HR skills and experience, supporting SE’s HR Customer Delivery team to deliver a range of HR services. You’ll be working in a fast-paced environment where a pro-active approach and excellent admin skills are essential.

You’ll be a first point of contact for all HR enquiries from your internal customers. You’ll take responsibility for ensuring that issues are resolved or referred to the appropriate manager.

You’ll carry out a range of general HR admin tasks which could include:

  • Administer our payroll, recruitment, systems and people development processes
  • Maintaining our employee data system, including information on holidays and absence
  • Keeping our manual and electronic filing and archive systems up to date
  • Editing HR content for the SE intranet

This is a fixed term role for twelve months. Benefits include flexible working arrangements and a competitive paid holiday entitlement.

The qualities you'll bring

You’ll have experience of working in a broad HR role and have knowledge of HR processes and practices — familiarity with payroll systems will be a bonus. You’ll know your way around Microsoft Office and SharePoint and be able to plan, organise and prioritise your own work.

You’ll be comfortable managing a varied workload and dealing with your SE colleagues and external customers and suppliers. Being a team player is important, as is having a keen eye for detail.
