The Premier League’s People team is looking for a brilliant Executive to provide maternity cover support across projects and team administration on a part-time, flexible hours basis from July 2022. The role will be for 12 months. The right candidate will have excellent organisational skills and be motivated to multi-task across multiple administrative tasks and projects. This nature of the role means that you can complete the work on a flexible basis in the week (21 hours to be completed across Monday to Friday) and the role may therefore appeal to individuals with caring responsibilities or others who need, or enjoy, flex in their working week.

Prior experience of working in a People (HR) function is not required, but you must demonstrate that you are able to liaise effectively and empathetically with colleagues, be an efficient operator and a team player and take a considered approach to your work.

The People team currently has six members, including this post, and there will be two additional recruits joining the team in Summer 2022. The team delivers a proactive and highly supportive HR function to the Premier League workforce, which currently totals approximately 250 staff. There is extensive work completed across staff engagement; business culture; diversity and inclusion; learning and development and recruitment; along with the core People service delivering payroll, benefits, and employee relations support.

This role will provide administrative support across the team, taking a lead in co-ordinating several key monthly tasks in the team. The role will also give you the chance to support on a variety of People team projects, giving the successful candidate exposure to work across the remit of the team. The role may therefore appeal to someone who has previously worked in HR, or someone who would like to give it a shot!
