So, what will I be doing?

As People Services Assistant, you'll be joining our friendly, supportive and motivated People Services team based at our new office in Highbridge.

This is a great opportunity for a highly-organised individual to collaborate with our co-owners, People Managers and site-based HR People Partners, ensuring our Employee Lifecycle - from onboarding new starters to employee relations to processing leavers - is fully supported throughout. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Using a ticketing system within our Shared Service Centre platform to manage all new starters, leavers, absence including Maternity and Paternity
  • Keeping all our co-owner records up to date, accurate, and ensuring best practise at all times
  • Providing HR advice and support to all our stakeholders, including our co-owners, People Managers and site-based HR Business Partners
  • Assisting with Employee Relation matters; sending out letters, note taking, ensuring our Policies are followed and being the first point of contact for all HR Administration across the business
  • Ensuring Welcome Back Meetings are held, recording information relating to absence and reporting to Sites
  • Liaising with on-site People Partners to ensure that all ER cases are on file and being managed effectively – assisting where required

Hours: 40 hours per week (These hours don't suit you? We'd still love to hear from you.)

Sounds interesting, what do I need?

The important things:

  • Demonstrable experience in a similar role, within an HR or Payroll team
  • Experience of issuing employment contracts, dealing with contract changes including flexible working requests
  • Solutions focused and forward-thinking, seeking to drive improvements where needed
  • Strong IT skills – excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office is essential
  • Ability to manage own workload within agreed Service Level Agreements (SLA's)
  • Desire to maintain high levels of satisfaction from all of our stakeholders.

Even better if:

  • You have previous experience within a dairy or FMCG business
  • You’ve worked in a Shared Services environment before
  • You're familiar with a ticketing system such as Zendesk and you've used Application Tracking (ATS) recruitment software
  • You have understanding of various shift profiles – we are a 24/7 business

Why should I join the family?

We’re independent, British and proud to be making the highest quality yogurts, desserts and ice cream under the Yeo Valley brand and for many of the UK’s major retailers. Operating from four dairies and two logistics centres in Somerset and Devon, we employ over 1700 staff and produce more than 25% of the UK’s packaged yogurt.

We’re sure you don’t need convincing, but there’s a whole host of benefits that we offer including:

  • 33 days holiday (including bank holidays)
  • non-contributory pension scheme
  • life cover
  • healthcare cash back plan
  • cycle to work scheme
  • subsidised Yeo Valley products and services
  • preferential rates with our partners
  • on-site gym
  • subsidised canteen
  • annual bonus (as part of the Employee Benefit Trust, based on company performance for the year)
  • learning and development opportunities; we’re committed to ensuring all of our employees have the chance to grow

Our closing dates are a guide for when the application window should close, although we may close the advert sooner if we can. So, we recommend you get your application in straight away – and don’t miss the opportunity to join us!

Unfortunately, we’re not able to provide employment sponsorship to candidates at this moment in time.

Please note that Yeo Valley do not accept speculative agency applications; we will only accept applications from preferred suppliers that have been submitted to us via our recruitment portal at the point of instruction.
