The role

This is a varied and hands-on role that entails working on a multitude of HR topics. The scope of work we provide is dependent on our clients’ needs and there is a strong opportunity to apply your own background/skills in HR.

We don't expect you to have experience in all areas but some of the more common deliverables include:

  • HR Compliance: Provide expert recommendations to ensure our clients’ HR practices and documentation comply with the Australian legislative requirements (Modern Awards, EBA’s, NES, WHS etc).
  • Employee/Industrial Relations: Provide timely day-to-day HR advice, guidance, and support to managers and employees on employment relationship matters including: absence management, breach of policy, performance management, bullying and then leading activities such as workplace mediation, investigation, FairWork representation, termination of employment.
  • Best Practice HR: Creating and leading initiatives such as employer of choice strategies, engagement/pulse surveys, focus groups, or other needs to solve problems/increase engagement.
  • HR Coaching and Training: To managers and employees to empower and educate in the area of Human Resources.
  • International Mobility: Coordinating mobility programs and facilitation of visa applications.
  • Remuneration & Benefits: Defining compensation packages and ensuring remuneration is paid according to legal minimums and market rates.
  • HR Administration: Drafting and developing policies and procedures, employment contracts, job descriptions, psychometric assessments, and other letters or amendments.
  • Other HR projects: Change management, outplacement, psychometric assessments, HRIS implementation, etc.

In addition to HR activities, this role also involves:

  • Conducting autonomous business meetings and consultations with current/potential clients.
  • Maintain contact with clients and being aware of developments within their business.
  • Creating business proposals for HR engagements.
  • Having professional conversations on HR topics with current/potential clients to promote Polyglot Group Services.

Preferred Experience & Qualifications

  • 2-3 years of experience in a generalist HR role.
  • Good understanding of ER/IR in Australia.
  • Appropriate tertiary qualifications.
  • The ability to listen and interpret our clients’ needs and provide valuable solutions.
