The starting salary for this role is £29,291 per annum rising to a maximum of £31,810 per annum for working 36 hours per week.
This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We’re less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we’d welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
This role is offered as a 12-month fixed term contract or secondment opportunity.
We have high ambitions here at Surrey County Council – our aim is to be recognised, simply, as outstanding and we are in the midst of an organisation wide transformation that will help us get there. The challenge is huge and the opportunities, even greater.
About the role:
We are recruiting for an Insight & Intelligence Assistant to join our HR&OD Insight and Intelligence Team.

You will provide a first class and user-friendly HR insight and intelligence service, by using your skills in the areas of analysis, interpretation, judgement, and decision making.
