Vacancy – HR Advisor

Are you an expert plate spinner?

Love the intellectual challenge of never knowing what question you’ll be asked next?

Enjoy being mentally agile and thinking on your feet?

If you come to work with the team here at Metis HR we can promise you without any doubt that every day will be different. One of the most interesting aspects of the job is that you never know what client from which sector is on the end of the phone and what kind of a problem they need help with there and then. You’ll enjoy keeping the plates spinning and the variety and the intellectual challenge that that gives you! At the end of every day, you’ll have the satisfaction of working closely with clients, getting to know them and their businesses very well. A client is never just a number at Metis HR.

You’ll enjoy solving problems and working with the team to build solutions that fit business needs. As an experienced plate spinner, you’ll already be an excellent communicator, a confident contributor to team activities and tasks and you’ll crave experiencing the professional pride of making a difference.
