The role at a glance

UNW is looking for a Human Resources Apprentice to join our growing HR team. You will support the HR operations with administrative tasks for all people projects, as well as studying towards a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Human Resources. On top of your apprenticeship, you will also achieve a Foundation Certificate in People Practice (CIPD) which will enable you to access a knowledge hub from CIPD – a leading organisation supporting HR professionals internationally.

What you’ll be doing

Working in people practice means that no two days are the same and we will make sure that you can get hands-on experience of all people related areas including employment law, payroll, learning and development, HR administration and talent management.

As your role develops, you will become our HR expert and first point of contact for people queries at UNW, but don’t worry – you will always be fully supported by the wider experienced HR Team who will make sure you have all the tools you need to develop a successful career at UNW.

What’s in it for you?

At UNW we pride ourselves on “doing the right thing” and this ethos extends across the firm, for every role. For this role, it means providing excellent client service to UNW team members and actively contributing to HR operations. You will quickly get a wide range of experience and exposure to day-to-day HR work, plus the opportunity to be involved with HR projects.

Your CIPD qualification will also allow you to get an in-depth understanding of current people issues and how your role as a people professional can contribute to tackling them long-term.

Who is this role ideal for?

We are looking for someone who is passionate about people and supporting the employee journey, but you don’t need any prior experience in human resources.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated and comfortable working on their own initiative, as well as part of a team.

If you’re a current Year 13 student and want to head straight into a career within professional services after completing your A Levels, then our apprenticeship programme is the perfect first step for you to take. We are also happy to consider your application if you have already left school and are now ready to start your HR journey.
