The Role and Skills of a Valuable HR Assistant

Course Overview

An effective HR assistant plays a key role in the efficient running of a HR department. The daily pressures are demanding, procedures are constantly evolving due to changes in legislation, and you have to handle sensitive employee issues on a regular basis. It is vital to ensure you are aware of key employment laws and best practice skills to handle employee issues effectively as they arise, and ensure you avoid costly errors.

In one intensive day, this highly practical HR assistant programme will make sure you are up to date with regulations and procedures to avoid infringements and the risk of costly disputes.

Benefits of attending:

  • Master the steps in successful recruitment and making job offers
  • Understand what must be included in a contract of employment by law and how employers can add to this to protect their particular interests or needs
  • Learn how to vary contract terms
  • Appreciate employee entitlement and employers’ responsibilities in different types of leave including pregnancy, maternity, paternity and parental leave
  • Understand how GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 affect HR practices
  • Examine the details of discrimination law to ensure that you are providing equality of opportunity and avoid costly mistakes
  • Get to grips with discipline and grievance procedures to feel more confident when involved in employee disputes
  • Ensure you know what ‘fair’ dismissals are and how employers are expected to be ‘reasonable’ in the manner of dismissal
  • Review Rights to Work issues in the UK post Brexit

This highly practical workshop contains case studies and actual situations faced by HR assistants. During each session the trainer will define, examine and discuss the specific role and responsibilities of a HR assistant connected with that topic.

A Recommendation For The Expert Trainer

I had the pleasure of working with Jocelyn over several months, supporting the professional development aspect of our HR development programme. Having participated in a number of modules delivered by Jocelyn, it is clear that her facilitation and coaching skills are excellent. Jocelyn has a breadth and depth of experience that clearly shines through in her design and delivery of programme content. The fact that Jocelyn can draw on her past experiences really brings the learning to life, this enhances the experience for her participants. In particular, Jocelyn has a strong commercial and strategic focus that encourages participants to see the difference that HR can make within an organisation. I have personally learnt a lot from Jocelyn, and would have no hesitation in recommending her’.
