HR Placement


We’re currently offering the opportunity for undergraduate placement students to gain valuable experience and develop a number of key skills that will help you to pursue a career in human resources.  

Working at our Head office in Skipton, North Yorkshire, this is a great opportunity to gain a real insight into the role of an HR professional, in a busy, faced-paced environment.  Working with a supportive team around you, the role will equip you with skills that will stand you in good stead to tackle your last year at university and a career in HR in the years thereafter.

What you'll do:

  • Liaise with employees across the business, from site operatives to directors, to provide support on any issues.
  • Support the recruitment process including the production of job adverts, dealing with applications, organising interviews and assisting in the delivery of inductions. 
  • Helping employees utilise their benefits, including private health care and the ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme. 
  • Keeping records of absence, monitoring the ‘return to work’ process.
  • Run reports on holidays, working time, absences and timesheets and provide data for management reports on such topics. 


What you'll bring:

  • The ability to work under pressure whilst maintaining a sense of humour.
  • Great teamwork skills – you’ll be a key part of the HR team – but you’ll need to be able to work independently too and have the ability to prioritise your workload effectively.
  • A strong work ethic.
  • Experience of using Microsoft Office and a basic understanding of other IT systems. 
  • Good communication skills – you’ll be speaking to people at all levels of the business!
  • The paperwork: You must be studying a full time business-related degree and be eligible to work in the UK.
