HR Teams are essential to the effective operation of any law firm making sure we put people at the heart of everything we do; which is especially important for the Thrings HR Team.  The role of HR Coordinator will help the team and the Firm to drive forward the people strategy, whilst ensuring we attract, develop and retain the people who help make Thrings a great place to work.

As our HR Coordinator your role will be varied, providing support to both the HR and Payroll function; you will have responsibility for:

We’re working in a hybrid way and envisage that will continue; ideally you will be based in one of our South West offices (working from home several days a week if requested) and may from time to time need to travel to other offices.  We’d like someone who is able to work full time hours due to the nature of this role but there is a degree of flexibility on this.  In return, you can expect a variety of benefits that can be tailored to you and your personal circumstances; these include Private Medical cover, Health checks, Dental Insurance, Travel Insurance and much more.
