About the role

With over 200 employees, AW Fraser has grown to the size where we need a dedicated HR Officer in place to provide hands on practical support our day to day operations and management team.

This role will be varied and interesting as the site run a mix of different teams and roster patterns which makes for many and varied people puzzles to be worked through on a frequent basis. We also have a diverse workforce that includes migrant workers, school leavers and uni-graduates in addition to long-serving experienced staff. While the role will have a large component of administration this role will require you to have the generalist HR experience and knowledge that will enable you to provide guidance to our managers. So this position wouldn’t suit someone at the HR Administrator level.

We are offering a competitive salary with flexible hours at a broadly full-time level, for the right candidate.  There is plenty of opportunity for job satisfaction in this role and a great team to work with. And you will have access to outsourced HR consultants for the more challenging tasks.
