Employment Hero is one of Australia's fastest-growing tech companies. Our world-class software is the easiest way for small to medium-sized businesses to manage HR, payroll, employee engagement, and benefits. Having expanded globally in late 2020 we will continue to grow rapidly in 2021 and beyond.

We believe in distributed employment and take a ‘Remote First’ approach with our team. We don’t mind if you live in Broome, Bendigo or Bondi, if you’ve got the skills for the role and the passion for our mission then we want to hear from you.

Our HR Support Consultants are partners to our customers and are responsible for ensuring they are maximising our platform and the value it brings to their organisation; thereby minimising the time they spend navigating the transactional people processes, and putting their focus back on the strategic people activities to optimise their business operations.

Taking on the role of our HR Consultant, your primary focus will be on ensuring there is continued support and success for them after implementing our Employment Hero product. Working closely with other Support Specialists, Product Owners and internal teams regularly, we require HR professionals wanting to put a new spin on their knowledge and capability. From testing of system logic and changes, and identifying and championing product improvement opportunities; to using your understanding of Australian employment standards to support the adaptation of our technology and regulation.

HRIS Specialists are fantastic and empathetic communicators who understand our customers' HR needs, multi-faceted business operations and industries. They are able to accurately convert that information to the system configuration, by navigating and providing valued and exceptional service to our clients.

So if you want to use your HR knowledge to help a wide range of clients from all industries to administrate and deliver the best HR practices - then we'd love to hear from you!
