Hertsmere is located in southern Hertfordshire – we are 13 miles from Central London and within the M25. We adjoin Greater London with excellent road and rail links making London and the Home Counties easily accessible. The Council Offices are situated in Borehamwood within Zone 6 and with a direct rail link into London Kings Cross St. Pancras. The area is an internationally renowned centre for film and television production, home to BBC Elstree and Elstree Studios (a council owned asset).

You will ideally be degree and CIPD qualified, with a sound grasp of employment law and an awareness of the particular workforce challenges in local government. You will be an excellent communicator verbally and in writing, with the ability to efficiently time manage a diverse and busy workload. Strong IT and administration skills are a must in this role.
