Human Resources Advisor

Arc isn’t just any organisation. To us Human Resources is about getting your hands dirty and really understanding what makes our diverse and passionate organisation tick. Arc is one of Australia's biggest & best student organisations and is made up of a dynamic and energetic group of people focused on providing students with the best student experience possible.

We are looking for someone who understands that the reason we are one of Australia’s top student organisations is our people, someone that can take ownership of this role and take our Human Resources department and Arc to the next level.

The Responsibilities

The most important thing to Arc is its culture. It’s what makes us who we are and the Human Resources Advisor ideally would embody and foster the culture we have built at Arc like some sort of cultural gatekeeper (a term that honestly, we’re not completely comfortable with but if you get this job your first task will be to come up with new one). In addition to ‘gatekeeping ‘ we have some more traditional HR duties as well:

  • Ensure the direction, policies and service provided by Human Resources is aligned to Arc’s strategy and goals and cognisant of Arc’s culture
  • Implement and enact Human Resource practices that enable Arc to attract, develop, support and retain talented staff members across a varied business portfolio
  • Coordinate Arc’s recruitment process;
  • Manage Arc’s Development Initiatives program
  • Overseeing the Recognition and Succession planning frameworks
  • Ensure Human Resources legal compliance by monitoring applicable state and federal legislative requirements and ensuring appropriate strategies, record keeping and administration
  • Foster and embody Arc’s organisational culture whilst developing strategies for rewarding employee performance
  • Develop and manage existing and new policies and procedures
  • Responsible for the management of Arc’s Work Health and Safety program
