Reports to: HR Manager


We are looking for an HR Assistant to work with our HR Manager on all things HR.

We’re looking for someone with a get sh*t done attitude, who is highly organised, confident in their ability and can take initiative. The role will be fast paced and exciting and has potential for growth for the right person.

The HR Assistant will have a broad remit, supporting on engagement, recruitment, onboarding, reward, learning and development, internal communications, diversity and inclusion and HR systems.  We are looking for someone with an empathic approach and excellent interpersonal skills. Previous experience in an HR/People role would be great although not essential for the role.

We believe we have a strong internal culture and the successful candidate will live out our values of community, collaboration and creativity. In addition to demonstrating strong leadership skills and the ability to work in a fast-paced, ever-evolving environment.

In addition to 29 days holiday, you’ll have two days a year to volunteer with a local charity, a pension with the People’s pension, birthday and anniversary treats, free fruit at work and plenty of beer. Once you’ve been with us a year, you’ll qualify for an annual health check and the Cycle2Work scheme.

As mentioned above, we offer the opportunity to progress professionally with access to internal and external training, and the chance to attend some of the best beer events across the world. Northern Monk is committed to providing a world class working environment and we are proud to say that our employees agree!
