About the Role

We’re currently recruiting for an Immigration People Assistant to join our established team. Whilst the role will be remote working, you will be required to travel to Handforth office twice a week.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to broaden your knowledge on the UK visas and to provide an excellent support for candidates, colleagues and recruiting team.

Day to day you’ll be involved in the complete administration of all visa applications, monitoring verification of right to work documentation and ensuring candidates have all the employment information and documentation they need to successfully apply for their visa. You will also be liaising with candidates, colleagues and recruiting managers daily as well as answering any Immigration queries either on emails or phone.

As you will be working with our Team based in Swindon, you will be required to complete your training in our beautiful offices next to the Retail Outlet and Steam Museum in Swindon (2 days a week for your first 4 weeks with us, fully paid by us). Occasional travel to Swindon will also be required.

Our diversity and inclusion vision is that everyone is welcome and feels part of our group. If you think you’re a good match to what we are looking for, and you share our belief that together ‘we’re better with pets’, we’d like to hear from you, whatever your background or circumstances.

About you

This role will entail you talking on the phone, so you must be confident and have strong communication skills along with the ability to be a key team player and build working relationships quickly and effectively. Previous experience using Microsoft Package is essential.

Experience in working within Immigration environment and HR systems would be an advantage but it’s not essential as full training will be provided.
