Job Description

MAG vacancy: HR Administrator

Manchester City Centre

Starting salary for this position is £18,960 per annum (plus contributory pension)

As the only UK aid and development charity to have shared the Nobel Peace Prize, Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an energetic, inspiring and forward thinking organisation. Wars and conflicts erupt, subside and end. But they leave behind millions of landmines, unexploded bombs and unsecure arms. These pose an every-day danger for decades and disrupt the lives of communities for generations. At MAG, we believe that whenever and wherever wars happen, ordinary people should not be the ones who pay the price.

Working with us, your administrative skills will help make a real difference, supporting our global lifesaving work.  You can use your existing administration skills and get experience in HR whilst doing something really worthwhile with your time. In the role, you’ll provide excellent administrative support to the HR team, looking after the administration systems which underpin our projects overseas.  This is a fast-paced role which will require high levels of organisation, attention to detail, pro-activity and multi-tasking.  You’ll work on administrative tasks related to areas like recruitment, payroll, inductions and many more.  

Previous experience of working in HR is not necessary, but you will need to have strong administrative experience to ensure that all our processes are followed effectively.  Above all, you will need to be approachable, flexible, super organised, have a good eye for detail and be ready to work in a busy role, taking pride in your work and striving for perfection.

This is a great opportunity to work for an international charity, using your existing skills and gaining new ones to develop your career.  We’ve got a friendly team and a modern, professional office and this job is a fantastic opportunity for the right person.
