With this in mind, we are looking for an HR professional who thrives on the challenge of sourcing, on-boarding and supporting the right people into the right positions at the right time.  This is a generalist role with a lot of variety, but also provides the opportunity to utilise your skills in specific areas such as talent acquisition.

What You Need to Succeed

  • Tertiary qualification with at least 3 to 5 years’ experience in a similar generalist HR role (aviation industry experience strongly preferred)
  • Extensive experience delivering HR administrative support across all levels of the business
  • Good understanding of the employment framework including Fair Work, modern awards and national employment standards

  • Exceptional attention to detail and accuracy
