HR Assistant


As a world class strategic UX agency, Nomensa has been helping clients create innovative and inclusive digital experiences since 2001. Our services and designs place every human at the heart of every product, device, app and service we create. With offices in Bristol, London and Amsterdam, and client wins across the commercial, charity, and government sectors we continue to grow and need someone to support our people at #TeamNomensa.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be a key member of the People Team, supporting us to effectively deliver our day-to-day HR activities and plan to colleagues across the full employee lifecycle. You’ll get involved in a variety of people related projects, from supporting our Chief Happiness Officers to spread a little happiness and joy, to projects that make sure we are compliant in line with the frameworks we work within - and everything in between! You’ll also get involved in recruitment as we are growing and continually looking for talent to join us.

Why you’ll love us

We aim to have a supportive environment where we are all inspired to do our best work, where we respect, collaborate and learn from each other. We have an amazing variety of projects and clients in the commercial, charity, and government sectors and there is always scope to develop your knowledge, skills and experience.

We’ve got a fantastic culture we want to keep evolving. We have achieved the Gold Standard Investors in People award (not easy!) and encourage everyone to be involved, to share their ideas and shape our business. We are inclusive and ultimately want you to be successful and happy, and to live our values – think bigger, be bold, be human.

Our benefits include a competitive salary, 25 days holiday (rising to 30 days), your birthday off, pension, BUPA wellbeing, Employee Assistance Programme, Perkbox benefits, life insurance, cycle to work and time off for charity work.

Even if we do say so ourselves, this is an amazing opportunity for someone who wants to build their career in HR & the people side of business and we will support you in gaining the right professional qualification. This might be a Level 3 5 CIPD qualification if you are a graduate or an apprenticeship if you are qualified by your work experience.

What we need from you

You’ll have great administration experience, ideally in a similar fast-paced commercial environment. A relevant degree with business or HR content is desirable, but not essential. If you already have some practical HR experience even better, but no matter if not, a passion for the role and the impact you can have is more important.

You’re organised, detail oriented and you enjoy continually learning and improving ways of working. You’re a team player who enjoys collaborating with others but is equally comfortable going solo on activities that will give you some stretch and professional growth. You get the need to be people and service focused and you care about the quality of your work and developing effective working relationships with colleagues. You communicate well, understand the need for discretion in this type of role and overall are ambitious to get your HR career moving.

How to apply

If you’re interested in joining a growing business where you’ll play an essential part of our journey, then we would love to hear from you. To apply, upload your CV to our recruitment site with a covering email telling us why you’d be a great fit. The closing date for applications is Friday 11 June 2021.

The role is full-time and is based in our Bristol office. We are enabling hybrid working (i.e. WFH and office based) so you don’t need to be BS1 based every day and this would be discussed at interview.
