Job description

London Bridge - office based with some remote working


What the job involves

This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate and flexible People & Performance (HR) Coordinator - who’s happy to roll their sleeves up - to play an integral role in providing a first-class employee experience that supports employee wellbeing and engagement, and the achievement of our strategic objectives and business plan. Working collaboratively with the wider People & Culture team to provide a customer focussed delivery, you’ll take ownership for all transactional processes relating to the entire employee journey, including onboarding, variations to existing terms and leavers. You’ll handle basic queries relating to terms and conditions, employee benefits, the HRIS, policies and pay - responding directly or directing them to appropriate colleagues in the team.


Following the implementation of our new HR system (CIPHR), you’ll be instrumental in the effective management of our people data. Working closely with our internal ‘system expert’ to ensure managers and employees use the system to maximum effect – you’ll be in a great position to spot opportunities for additional functionality that meets their needs.


Part of a busy team, in a fast paced and demanding environment, this is a hands-on role which is all about the detail – so naturally, understanding the importance of getting the basics right is key! There will also be lots of opportunities to develop and grow your knowledge as an active member of cross-organisational project or working groups focusing on EDI, Wellbeing or Employee Experience (to name just a few!).

What we want from you

We’re looking for a people orientated, self-motivated and hands on professional, who is committed to a career in HR, and experienced in providing excellent operational services within a busy HR/People team. You’ll need to have strong interpersonal skills and integrity, be able to communicate well with others and quickly build credibility. It’s a given that you’ll understand the importance of confidentiality and discretion when working in a trusted role with access to highly sensitive information and effectively managing a busy and varied workload won’t be anything new to you.

You’ll have awareness of best practice and the principles of employment law alongside a good understanding of the principles of GDPR and how they relate to communicating, storing and processing employee data. Whether you’ve worked on CIPHR before (or not), you’ll have flexible digital skills and confidence using HR systems that you can leverage through your system training, and beyond.

Why work for us?

We’re here to stop prostate cancer killing men and damaging bodies and lives. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise, we continue to make advances in research to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment and support so that we can build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.

Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.

What we offer

Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will support you to develop your skills and expertise. We’re particularly proud of our agile working arrangements which allow (as appropriate to the role) for flexibility around where and when we carry out our work to ensure we can achieve the best results for the charity, at the same time as balancing our working lives with life’s other commitments!


We also offer a competitive benefits package including generous leave entitlements, season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme, an enhanced contributory pension scheme, life insurance and group income protection as well as a Health Cash Plan and free advice and support on pretty much anything via our Employee Assistance Programme.


Our commitment

Our teams, supporters, partners, and those living with prostate cancer, come from all walks of life. We draw upon the difference in who we are, what we’ve experienced and how we think to build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes our charity stronger and helps us reach more people. If you share our ambition we would love to hear from you.


Closing date: 7th December 2021, but please note we will be shortlisting and interviewing candidates as applications come in, so please apply as soon as you can as we may close the vacancy early.

Interviews: By arrangement.
