Human Resources Administrator
Fixed Term Part Time Role
Hancock Forest Management NZ Ltd (HFM NZ) was established in 2004 to manage forests on behalf of Hancock Natural Resource Group’s clients. We currently manage approximately 198,000 hectares of plantation forests on behalf of two clients. Forests are located in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Horizons Manawatu Regions. HFM NZ is strongly committed to providing a safe working environment and to being good stewards of the environment. We employ approximately 90 staff based in four locations – Tauranga, Tokoroa, Rotorua and Whangarei. Our employees are our most valuable asset and are the key to our reputation and success.
We have recently secured a new client and will begin managing their 33,000 hectares of forest estate from 1 October 2018. This exciting new opportunity for our business will require the appointment of a significant number of new HFM NZ employees. A full recruitment and induction programme has been planned.
We are seeking a Human Resources Administrator extraordinaire to provide support through the recruitment and transition programme.
The position will be responsible for:
- Supporting a full professional end to end recruitment process including managing relationships with internal hiring managers and candidates.
- Supporting an onboarding and induction programme for all new employees
- Various day to day administrative tasks as required
It goes without saying that we need strong administrative skills, exceptional attention to detail and outstanding prioritisation and time management skills. We’re after someone with a warm, welcoming & professional manner and the ability to engage easily with a wide range of people. Proven experience in a recruitment or HR support role would be preferred but more important will be attitude and energy. This role will be one of the first contact points people have with our business and as such we will be looking for a professional who can be the face of our business, and deliver first class customer service.
The role is available immediately and will run for approximately 6 months. While we envisage hours to be approximately 20-25 hours per week, we are open to discussing exact hours with our preferred candidate who can commit to the full contract period.
