We have a fantastic opportunity which has arisen working within the busy and varied HR department for a local organisation based in the heart of Taunton.

Your duties will include;

You must be able to hit the ground running and be a team player. Previous experience in supporting multi-sites and multiple departments across a range of HR issues is essential.

The role is full time working 37 hours per week and flexibility is required to work around company needs, the company is split across two sites in Taunton and Wellington so you will need access to transport to commute between the two sites.
