HR Coordinator IHQ

Part-time/Fulltime, 32-38 hours a week

Our HR team consists of several areas of expertise, such as Compensation & Benefits, People Development, HR Shared Service Centre, Recruitment and the HR Business Partner team. The HR Business Partners are responsible for advising management on tactical and strategic HR issues, are sparring partners for management, provide advice (both when requested and on an ad hoc basis) in the field of HR, and are closely involved in HR projects and rolling out the (strategic) HR agenda. We are seeking administrative support in the Business Partners team by taking on an HR Coordinator. 

This is your daily action

You will provide daily administrative and coordinating support to our three HR Business Partners, each of whom will be responsible for a separate domain of our IHQ. Among other things, you will assist with the administrative processing of salary proposals, internal mobility, drafting letters and answering ad hoc questions. You will continuously monitor document flows and work closely with the HR Shared Service Centre to make sure everything can be communicated to our staff on time. In addition to your administrative tasks, you will provide reports relating to performance management, staff turnover, recruitment, investigations (on recruitment and departure), absenteeism and staff levels. With regard to training opportunities at Action, you will ensure that a clear overview of the study budget is available as well as the extent to which it is used. You will also be involved in drawing up and rolling out a clear procedure to this end. Finally, you will support the HR Business Partners in answering first-line questions from managers regarding our systems and processes.

This is you

You have some experience in HR administration and take a critical and accurate approach to administrative processing and anything to do with HR operations.

  • A completed vocational education (MBO+) or Bachelor's degree, preferably in the field of HR
  • Experience in an (international) HR department
  • Excellent command of Dutch and English (both oral and written)
  • Experience in retail is an asset

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.

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.
