CBC210254 - Job description and person specification

Who are we?

Chesterfield Borough Council: we deliver services the people of Chesterfield rely on. This ranges from managing an extensive housing stock, maintaining the Town Centre, provision of two leisure centres to ensuring the Councils green spaces are maintained to a high standard.

We are seeking to appoint a HR Apprentice to join a friendly, busy and supportive HR team in the heart of the council, where we will provide you with the opportunity to develop full knowledge of the HR lifecycle, from recruitment to day one ‘onboarding’, to the end of a contract.

You will work with and alongside the Department’s HR team, which administers recruitment and selection, payroll and induction, reward and recognition, and training and development. We also provide advice and input on all of our HR procedures and policies

What do we offer?

Our apprentices are never on their own; you will benefit from a supportive environment working in collaboration with the rest of our committed team. You will also be supported by our Learning & Development team and you will join our growing network of apprentices within the council. You will also have the opportunity to become an apprenticeship ambassador for the council.

We will provide you with a welcoming and inclusive workplace, offering support and development opportunities that will enable you to progress and do your best work. We recognise diversity as our strength, vital for innovation and creativity, and we aspire to build a truly diverse community, which values and respects every individual’s unique contribution.

Who do we want?

We want to recruit an apprentice who will relish the opportunity of the support and training on offer at the start of their career in HR. You will need to have a proactive and positive outlook, a good customer focus and interpersonal skills with a commitment to your own personal development. Also, you will be flexible, methodical, have an accurate approach to data entry and be open to change.

You will need to have the following:

  • Level 2 Maths and English
  • Good IT skills and experience of Microsoft Office

If you have completed another apprenticeship or qualification it must be at a lower level or in a completely different subject area to the apprenticeship you are applying for. If you are successful in your application, you must not be in receipt of or attending any other funded training or signed to another apprenticeship.

Finally, we need you to bring a positive can-do attitude and we will help you make this role your own.

What’s in it for me?

The apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to learn different areas of HR where you can gain relevant experience and knowledge to enable you to complete the apprenticeship more effectively.

You will receive:

The National Minimum Wage depending on age.

  •  The opportunity to gain a recognised qualification over 18 months: Level 3 Business Administrator. Once this has been successfully completed and you have demonstrated yourself in the role you would progress into the role of HR Administrator.
  • Flexible working hours to achieve a healthy work life balance,
  •  Access to the Local Government pension scheme
  • Training opportunities to assist in your personal development.

The successful applicant will be subject to a skills scan at Chesterfield College.
