HR Administrator German
We are looking for German speaking employees to join our team!
You probably know us, Action. That nice store where you can buy the craft supplies for the children at an affordable price, load your basket full just before the new school year starts, or score the right tools for that too long delayed chore at home. Did you also know that we have a large HR department and more than 50,000 employees working for us for which a lot of administrative work has to be done? Curious about the administrative work of our HR department? Nice, we are curious about you!
This is your daily action
For our international head office, we are looking for colleagues who can help take care of the personnel administration of the countries where we are now active in, namely: the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic and Italy. Within our personnel administration we work with three teams, each of which is responsible for a part of the administration.
Hiring team: All new colleagues are processed through the hiring team. And we do that often and on a big scale, for example we hire hundreds of new employees & we approve hundreds of vacancies for all stores within Europe. You will start drawing up contracts, checking the information provided, and ensuring a good start. You understand, as a new employee that first impression with Action is very important. How nice is it if you can play a part in that!
Time team: If you work at Action as a colleague, it is important that your hours worked are correctly entered within the system and that everyone gets the right salary. The Time team takes care of this and also tackles subjects such as absenteeism registration. An accurate job that makes many people happy.
Mutation team: During an employment contract, all kinds of changes can take place, ranging from changing to a new position to a change of address. All these changes are processed and confirmed by us. In addition, we handle all kinds of requests and documents such as employer statements, work permits and declarations. Will you come and help us manage this behind the scenes?
We have room within the various teams, so we are especially curious about where your interests lie and how we can match these to our challenges.
Our work can be easily combined with, for example, school hours, sports clubs or power naps and we consult each other on working days. Remote working is one of the options, but we also think it's important that you feel part of our team and of Action. How do we do that? We would be happy to tell you more about this in person!
This is you
Helping your colleagues gives you energy and accurately performing the HR administration is a challenge that appeals to you. Action has an international character, which means that you form an international team with your colleagues. It therefore helps if your command of English is sufficient. This way you can discuss the challenges of the day with your colleagues and participate in the monthly international online pub quiz. Furthermore, we believe that the following things will help you:
- Completed mbo education, preferably in the direction of HR or administration
- 0-3 years administrative experience
- Excellent command of German, both written and spoken
- Do you also speak the language of one of the other countries where we operate? Then that is a big advantage!
What we offer
Surprisingly more! From our bustling home base in the Netherlands, you’ll have an impact on the whole of Europe. The counter now stands at more than 2,000 stores in 10 countries and millions of smiles from our customers. And we have big growth ambitions. For Action and for you. Because our growth means that you can always take new steps. A different job, an interesting innovation project, new skills: as a professional you can develop without limits. And all this in a culture where our shared values are truly lived: customer focus, teamwork, simplicity, discipline, cost conscious and respect.
Did you know that you can also count on us for:
- Flexible working hours; decide for yourself which working hours suit you best
- The ability to work from home or the office
- A temporary contract with the intention of offering you a permanent contract in the long term
- 24 days of holiday and the option to buy 5 extra days (based on 38 hours per week)

How we contribute to society
If you only know Action from the stores, a world will open up for you when you join us. For example, we are working hard behind the scenes to make a positive impact on society and the environment. Did you know, for example, that we sponsor more than 2,000 children worldwide who are growing up in an SOS Children’s Village? That our team reflects the diversity of our customers, including 124 nationalities? That we already source 70% of our wood products and 86% of our cotton sustainably? And that only energy-efficient LED lighting is used in more than half of our stores? Yes, that is also Action. Curious about what other initiatives we’re facilitating? Join our team and find out for yourself.
