Job description

If your idea of a perfect day is:

Answering emails from managers to help them out how to prepare for a promotion request 'please respond asap'. Getting a coffee and hurry to the meet up with your HR colleagues to share a case of how to effectively deal with the challenge to find staff and think along with a colleague dealing with a difficult possible WIA case. You meet one of your managers and together walk through their team; who is up for promotion? Who needs some extra attention or care? You go back to your workstation and prepare a difficult job offer for a new international hire. Luckily you can call your expert colleagues to think along with you. A teams call pops up from an agitated employee who doesn't agree at all with the last review given. You listen and help out. And then you see an invite of a HR colleague requesting your participation in a process optimalization project. But before you can answer, you have your meeting with a new manager who you have to inform their enthusiastic idea isn't legally possible and convince them to explore together what could be possible.

Then you are the new colleague we seek. Working as HR advisor means no day is the same.

This position is of interest to you
  • If you have recently obtained your HRM diploma or hold a Bachelor's or Master's degree in a different area but are eager to learn.
  • If you 'like to work with people' but you also have a strong interest in organizational needs and demands and legal framework.
  • If you are not afraid to learn, make mistakes and try again.
