This role sits in the People Analytics & Systems Team within the People Division. The post-holder will support the team by providing high-level eRoster support to managers and employees ensuring the integrity of eRostering system is maintained to enable managers to undertake day to day workforce planning and support general management tasks such as sickness absence and annual leave. The post-holder will also need to ensure the security of the system is maintained through managing user-access and re-setting passwords.
Hybrid working is encouraged; some of the role involves face-to-face interactions with our people and therefore there is a requirement for the post-holder to work from the Corporate and Community Hub in Haggerston for at least 2 days per week (up to a maximum of four). Whilst you are working in the office you will need to cross-cover for those working at home in terms of the face-to-face interactions with our people.
Our Corporate and Community hub, at 6 Orsman Road, is an exciting new working space, which is open plan with the People Operational Directorate and Finance sharing a space, with two kitchenette areas. The space is modern and bright with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the canal. There are shared spaces for all building users to make use of including a communal lounge, dining space and roof terrace area.
Main duties of the job
Previous experience working with an eRostering system is preferred to undertake this role due to the busy nature of our team. You need to be someone who is organised and works well in a team. Although the post holder will have their own areas of responsibility in terms of managers to support, there will be an expectation to cross-cover for team members during times of absence (for example annual leave).
We need someone who can liaise with people from many different teams and will understand the importance of processes. We recognise that there is always room for improvement in our working practices and are open to ideas and different ways of working. Whilst there is always someone you can turn to for help, we would like someone who can show initiative to join our team and can look to solve problems on their own.
