DFDS Land-Based

Junior HR Administrator (student position) - DFDS

Do you want to contribute to the development of the People Division (Human Resources) and support key People processes, data and analytics for our salary planning, bonus, talent review and performance management - while at the same time help us work smarter with data?

The Global Learning & Development team and the Global Rewards team are looking for a student, who can support both teams – and work as a crucial helping hand to support us with different kinds of tasks related to our annual wheel.

Get first-hand experience with key HR processes, data and analytics in a large international People organisation

You will be a part of the People Division and get the opportunity to work with colleagues from various People areas and from different countries.
We collaborate closely with local People teams as well as with colleagues in our Headquarter (People, Finance, Communication, etc.).
You will get responsibility for driving selected parts of specific processes on your own. As such, your work will be a mix of independent project tasks as well as administrative support to the colleagues in the two teams.

As a student in DFDS you can look forward to taking part in the student network and the mentor programme allowing for social activities as well as professional advice related to your work.

Main Responsibilities

The position is flexible with varying data and process administrative and project related tasks within HR. Together with the managers responsible for Global Learning & Development and Rewards, you will plan your work, prioritising based on when the key annual processes within these areas take place. 

Gradually, we expect you to gain more insight and knowledge of the processes, workflows and DFDS functions so your role can develop, and you will have the opportunity to become involved in new tasks and responsibilities.

The position is part-time of around 15-20 hours per week. We offer flexible working hours, so you continue to prioritise your studies.

Your Main Tasks Consist Of

  • Assisting the teams with operational and administrative tasks (e.g., data analysis/presentations, handling queries from local HR during the salary planning, creating dashboard with our talent performance management data, , preparing bonus overview and securing dialogue with payroll, finalising LTI award letters, etc.)
  • Project activities: Process mapping, preparing kick-off and stakeholder meetings, documenting milestones and deadlines
  • Quality assurance of presentations and spreadsheets
  • Ad hoc tasks

Who are you?

We are looking for a student within a relevant line of study such as human resources, organisational studies, economics or business administration.

Professionally you:

  • Have an analytical mindset and are mindful of the detail
  • Work in a structured result-oriented manner
  • Great Excel skills
  • Can communicate in English - both spoken and in writing
  • Get new ideas on smarter ways to solve the tasks
  • Are interested in human resource processes, data and digital solutions
  • Have a can-do attitude – and a sense of humour

At a personal level, we expect you to be eager to learn and contribute to the team, both professionally and socially. We expect you to take responsibility for your areas of work, and we will balance this with the right level of support to help you succeed.
