HR Specialist - work from home ($12/hr)
HR Specialist – remote position ($12/hr)
When and where will I be working?
This position is remote, so you can work from home or anywhere you have a reliable internet and phone connection. However, you must reside in the state of Utah and preferably in the Wasatch Front. There is a lot of flexibility as to when you work, too. There are weekly tasks that have deadlines and/or are time sensitive, but you can generally choose what hours of the day to work on them. You will need to be generally available to answer inbound phone calls for the business during business hours (8am – 5pm Mountain Time). This is a part time job and will vary from week to week in the amount of hours required (expect it to range from 5-20 hours). In the spring when we are busy hiring to ramp up for summer work you will spend more time and in the winter months it may be much slower.
This could potentially work out well for candidates who are a stay-at-home mom who has some extra time while kids are at school etc. and wants to earn some extra money. Most of our office staff are in this situation.
What will I be doing?
The bottom line for you in this position is to make sure that AJET is fully staffed and has a happy stable workforce.
Recruiting: Traditional methods of hiring (i.e. post a job and conduct interviews) have not proven to be the most effective for AJET. We need someone who can go out and actively recruit and find good candidates. We are mostly hiring for blue collar positions, a space that traditionally doesn’t have a lot of recruiting activity. So we need someone who is creative and can come up with out of the box ways to reach the right type of people. This will likely mean cold calling people, connecting with them on social media, networking, etc. Your ability to effectively recruit good talent will be key to your success and AJET’s success.
Retention: The counterpart to recruiting is retention. We need to be able to hold on to the good people we have and develop their skills. One of AJET’S stated missions is to be a place where people can come to grow and develop (both professionally and on a personal level). We need to make sure there are good training programs in place, that people feel valued and heard and that they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. You will be responsible for creating and spearheading initiatives to boost morale and cultivate a healthy, fun culture in the workplace.
Administrative: You will also be responsible for administrative tasks like onboarding new employees, managing HR related requests from employees, tracking training and career progress etc. You will also handle employee complaints and make sure people feel they have an advocate if they think they are being treated unfairly.
How much will I make?
Starting pay is $12 per hour.
