Working in virtual HR advisory environment, HR Advisers are the first point of contact for Line Managers and Employees, when HR support is requested, via various channels. Being generalist roles in nature, HR Advisers will receive queries on a variety of topics daily, covering both simple and complex cases. Cases can range from systems support, annual HR exercises, internal resourcing, performance or absence management. They might also include domestic transfers, disability entitlement and advice on vacation entitlement.
Following the initial contact by the Line Manager or Employee, an HR Adviser takes accountability to manage a case from end to end, seeking subject matter expertise from colleagues in HR Operations, or specialist support from HR colleagues sitting in country when appropriate. HR Advisers will determine the flow through of requests from clients and where escalation or further support is needed, to ensure timely delivery. HR Advisers will be the ‘face of HR’ to many of our workforce.
