We are looking for a remote HR administrator to join our global team of humans. You can be based anywhere in the world. Human Made is a fully distributed company, with employees in the UK, Australia, and the United States, and contractors all over the world. We are looking for someone who is active, motivated, and driven, who thrives while dealing with multiple different tasks in different contexts, who is sensitive to different cultures, and who loves working with people.
You will be responsible for coordinating the hiring process, so experience with recruitment is desirable including building role profiles and understanding and using recruitment platforms. As Human Made is actively seeking to create a more diverse team, experience with recruiting from minority groups in the tech industry is an advantage. You will draft job descriptions, advertise new roles, triage applications, and follow up with applicants. When a new employee accepts a position, you will be responsible for creating their contract and onboarding them to the company. You should provide input into how to refine and improve Human Made’s recruitment and hiring processes.
Human Made has a number of HR management systems, including CharlieHR and TriNet. You will be responsible for updating these as required and ensuring that they remain compliant with relevant data protection law. The company has a public handbook, which you will be responsible for updating, including HR policies based on the suggestions of our HR advisors in the UK, USA, and Australia. You will be expected to liaise with those advisors on HR-related matters, and to speak to our other legal advisors with regards to issues such as new subsidiaries, insurance, and visa applications.
You will be responsible for administrating Human Made’s HR processes, including engagement surveys, 360s, and Performance Review. You’ll work with the Director of People Operations to roll out new HR and culture initiatives.
Human Made is a visa sponsoring organisation in the UK and Australia. You will be responsible for administering the visa application process for employees who are seeking to move to these countries.
You will be responsible for Human Made’s GDPR compliance, including updating our data protection policies and conducting data protecting audits as necessary. Prior knowledge of this is not required and training will be provided to support you.
Human Made is a remote company so you should have excellent written communication skills that enable you to work with a diverse group of people from around the world. You should be able to work in a self-directed manner, addressing problems as they come up, and identifying issues in your area of work and fixing them. You should be able to prioritise your tasks and able to ask for help when you need it.
As this is a HR role, you should have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to communicate well with people at all levels of the company. You will be a member of the Operations Team, reporting directly to the Director of People (who reports to the CEO).
