About the Role

At National Star we are driven by our vision for a world in which people with disabilities are able to realise their potential as equal and active citizens. We are one of the largest employers in Gloucestershire, with over 900 employees at the moment.

We have a large team who work on the care and education side, providing residential and classroom support, but our office support functions are equally important to the smooth running of National Star and all of its services.

As Human Resources Administrator you will have a key role to play in the HR team with day to day responsibility for recruitment administration, contracts of employment, pre-employee checks, and other generalist administrative functions.  You will be also be responsible for updating the HR systems, and will act as the first point of contact for any queries.

Successful candidates will be motivated and able to use their initiative. As a CQC Outstanding and Ofsted Outstanding organisation, we have very high standards and we will expect you to work within these.



When you start, you will attend selected sessions within a 2 week induction course. These will cover topics specific to working in an organisation like National Star and will give you a chance to get to know new starters on the Care and Education side, as well. Our in-house training team has been awarded the Princess Royal Training Award and will support you as you become familiar with your role. This is mandatory for everyone who joins us, so that we are able to maintain our standards of care and support.
