Locations: Birmingham/ Leicester/ Milton Keynes/ Essex/ Kent/ Reading

We are Citation – One of the UKs biggest providers of Health and Safety, HR, Employment Law and ISO Services to businesses. We don’t do micro-management – instead, we empower, support and innovate. We are leaders, not empire builders and we love our business. We have been named as one of the UKs Top 100 Best Companies to work for… Not one, but FOUR times!

We’ve always believed in hiring the most awesome people and treating them right. We’ve tripled in size in the past few years and plan to do it again with your help.  We’re a great bunch of people to work with because we care so much about our colleagues and culture.  We’re not interested in hierarchy or politics, just getting things done and enabling people to be their brilliant selves.

Why Citation? Why now?

With everything going on with Covid-19, we get that you might have had your working life totally flipped on its head. You might be working and have realised your business can’t offer you what you need either personally or culturally anymore. Or you might have been furloughed and had time to think, so now is the time for a change. Over 60% of our teams were all already working at home before the pandemic, so we have the infrastructure and support for you to succeed and allow you to concentrate on what you’re good at – dealing with clients.

We have the systems to do everything remotely – from interviewing, to your induction, to even “meeting” with clients. So, you don’t even have to worry about leaving the house to travel to work to start. With a team of remotely based managers solely there to support and guide you, you’ll have everything you need to focus on looking after your clients.

The role

  • Provide end to end telephone advice and support on a wide range of issues including terms and conditions, disciplinary and grievance, sickness and absence, performance and misconduct, TUPE, redundancy, discrimination, dismissal, employee relations, recruitment etc.
  • Draft documents to support advice given.
  • Management of own case load. We believe in a good work life balance. There is no taking work home, no mobile phone ringing out of hours, no time recording, and you will see a case through from start to finish, building up relationships with your clients.
  • Scope to assist in projects such as seminars, delivering training and workshops to clients.
  • Assist the Business Development team to market our services to prospective clients.

The world post-Covid is changing and evolving, as are we. This role will also have the opportunity to help with our HR Onsite services within a set regional area.

We know people are the biggest asset to any business but managing them isn’t always so easy. When tricky situations arise – from disciplinaries and grievances, to restructures and redundancies – it can feel like all our client’s time, effort and resource are focused solely on that.

That’s where our on-site HR service comes in. Having someone with the technical expertise by our client’s side, either to help them through the difficult conversation or even to lead the meeting – we are there when our clients need us most.

  • Visiting clients at their site to provide a range of Onsite HR services including:
    • Hearing disciplinaries
    • Hearing grievances
    • Carrying out investigations
    • Managing exit negotiations
    • Conducting redundancy or TUPE consultations
    • Preparing and carrying out bespoke training
    • Auditing personnel files
    • Conducting strategy meetings
  • Drafting reports containing your recommendations
  • Drafting outcome letters
  • Drafting settlement agreements or COT3s
  • Providing advice to clients covering a wide variety of HR/Employment Law issues from queries on maternity rights to disciplinary guidance to advice on TUPE
  • Promoting the wide range of products and services that Citation can offer

 

The Person

  • You will have a track record of advising employers on complex and varied HR and employment law issues and conducting meetings on a client’s behalf
  • Technical expertise is crucial, as is the ability to offer client focused pragmatic advice to assist our varied client base in achieving their business objectives
  • The ability to be impartial when conducting hearings on behalf of clients
  • Ability to disseminate information from the client to form a clear view and exhibit commercial awareness when thinking on your feet
  • Possess relevant qualifications and have a strong technical background within a similar role
  • Enjoys problem solving and getting to the bottom of issues
  • Tact, diplomacy, an eye for detail and excellent oral and written communication skills are essential
  • Possess a can-do, confident and positive attitude
  • Display integrity and professionalism at all times
  • Be self-motivated and able to work with autonomy. We pride ourselves on not micro-managing our professional employees and instead provide a friendly and supportive environment whereby you will invest in your own learning and career

 

You could be from a consultancy role already or have most of your experience from internal HR roles; either would be perfect for us. Having experience in every sector our clients fall into shouldn’t worry you either – you’ll be joining a team who will help you learn and develop.

 

What you get from us?

Working for Citation you will receive 25 days holiday, corporate gym membership discounts, private healthcare, your birthday off work, the opportunity to purchase extra leave, pension contributions and more.

 

It’s a great place to work because of the people we employ. Fun, professional and supportive, we want likeminded individuals who love to love their job (no ‘mood hoovers’ here thanks!). So, if our culture sounds like a good fit for you and you want to be part of our success story, then send us your details.
