An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Systems Administrator to join a great team at Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) to support the implementation and on-going development of a new HR system.
The HR system is central to all our employee information and provides vital data to other software systems in use across the Service such as the mobilising of crews, risk reduction and payroll, to name but a few. Providing management information and reports is also an essential part of the system.
We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled individual to administer, develop and maintain the new HR system and provide accurate, timely statistical information to assist DFRS in achieving the vision of ‘Making Derbyshire Safer Together.’ You will need excellent communication skills with the ability to analyse, review and present data in a professional format. Working with a high level of accuracy, you will be extremely proficient in the use of IT systems and the MS Office Suite especially Excel.

Knowledge and understanding of Data Protection and GDPR is essential. GCSE passes in Mathematics and English (Grade A-C or level 4 and above or equivalent) and BTEC/NVQ Level 3 (or equivalent experience) in Business and Administration are also essential.
To ensure a smooth transfer to the new system, you will initially work alongside the current post holder for information handover and also with the project team to support the overall implementation.
