Compliance Administrator | Education Recruitment (Jan 23 Start)
Compliance Administrator | Education Recruitment
Principal are seeking a Compliance Administrator to assist with our growth.
About the company
Principal is a recruitment agency for the education sector and we were founded to bring change.
In the same way, Uber uses an app to connect drivers and customers, Principal’s native app creates a direct connection between its candidates and clients, 24/7/365.
The result is a more efficient, fairer, and non-bias way of working, we believe this market-leading technology gives us an edge over the competition in an industry where everyone says and does the same thing.
What you will be doing
As we work in education, the candidates we place need to complete several checks before we can allow them access to our work. These include, but are not limited to, Right to work, DBS, Qualifications, Declaration, and CV and referencing checks to name just a few.
You will be helping hundreds of candidates complete their checks before we can allow them to select work in our app.
It’s a fast-paced and rewarding role.
You will be opening new files and maintaining old ones, you’ll support candidates through the compliance process helping them gain approval status.
If you have experience in a similar role, or you are familiar with the DfES Keeping children safe in education guidance then that’s an advantage, however, it’s not essential, what we are looking for though is:-
- Excellent attention to detail
- Fantastic written and verbal communication skills
- The ability to build rapport with candidates from all different backgrounds
- The ability to multitask – fans of lists will like this job.
- A team player
- A can-do winners attitude!
In your role you will report to the Compliance Director for final approval for files, however, you will have full autonomy in your role, and we welcome your input with regards to new technologies and processes that will help the business be more efficient as you grow in competency.
Our technology is new, and the employment and safeguarding legislation is constantly changing, so we will need you to keep abreast of changes.
Although this role is an entry-level position, we see this department growing and so there is the potential for this role to become Compliance Manager in the near future.
Compliance is often seen as the enemy of sales; I have even heard it called the sales prevention team. Here at Principal, we don’t see it that way at all, the candidate onboarding team, the compliance team, and the client-facing consultants are all part of the sales process, and we want the Compliance team to assist the sales team in helping as many compliant candidates as we can.
You will be predominantly office based, with the occasional WFH day to allow for the various administrative tasks that life presents. The office is based at St Katherines Dock, a short walk from Tower Bridge, Tower Hill, and Fenchurch Street Stations.
We are a fun, fast-paced business driven to succeed, that said we play as hard as we work! As a key member of the team, you will enjoy regular drinks, events and even Michelin Stared Lunches.
Apply today, give us a call, or pop in and say hi!
