I’m Hiring…and Experimenting!

Posted on: November 23, 2011

So, I’ve never written a blog post quite like this one before…but I’m quickly learning that experimentation is a good thing… ūüėČ

I’m hiring for a couple of roles in my HR team and I would love to be able to make my first social media hire. And clearly I’m biased, but I genuinely think they are great opportunities to work in a fantastic and friendly HR team and be part of a great business. All roles are London-based¬†in our Farringdon office and I’d love to hear from you if you like the sound of one of them, or if you know someone who may be interested.

Interim Senior HR Manager (12 months) Р£45k

This is a generalist role, working closely with the sales team and managing an HR Advisor and HR Assistant. ER issues, change management, influencing at a senior level, setting and driving the HR  agenda for this area will be dynamic and exciting and will require someone with strong experience of generalist HR roles, potentially also with a sales organisation.

HR Assistant Р£20k 

This is a great starter HR role for someone who ideally has at least a little work experience already and wants to develop their career in HR. The role will cover all of the payroll and benefits administration, as well as providing a great introduction to all aspects of HR. We have a great track record of really developing our HR Assistants and many of them stay with us and progress to HR Advisor or Manager level, or often beyond.

PA Р£22k

I’m a little shy about this role as it’s for me and I definitely need some organising! Diary management, travel, administration, projects and all round life-enhancing organisation skills…oh yes and a fabulous boss, obviously ūüėČ

So, that’s it. A very different blog post and quite an experiment to see if I get any good CVs. I would truly love to recruit someone via a recommendation of one of you lovely blog readers or via Twitter or LinkedIn…and I will of course keep you posted!

You can connect with me on here or on Twitter (@AlisonChisnell) or on LinkedIn…I’d love to hear from you!

Great stuff Alison. I admire your desire for experimenting and I hope it helps you get some great results. Nice work!

Hi Alison – I have an HR interim community (Interimity) and whilst it is not for FTC roles they may know people in their network who would want to do the role…. happy to post in the group, but could we have a quick chat first? (and you can help me with blogging!)


Hi Julia – of course (on both the phone call and the help with blogging fronts!). I’ll drop you an email and perhaps we cam have a chat on Monday?

Please feel free to look at my network, some great people there, also if you looking for a PA, someone was recommended to me, his daughter, if you are interested i can forward info to you

Thanks Mike – I appreciate that. I’m happy to look at the potential PA’s CV, I’ll drop you a note with my email address.

Likewise to all of the above Alison -i’m Mike Darling-Holmes I do a lot of public sector HR assignments -it would be good to keep in touch


Thank you Mike – I’ll make contact with you via LinkedIn
