Senior HR Information System (HRIS) Specialist

Dept Holding NL

Dept is looking for a Senior HR Information System (HRIS) Specialist who will help us build and support the best internal People & Culture tools for Dept!

As a Senior HRIS Specialist, you will be the primary support for our global People & Culture data systems, particularly focused on the HRIS Talentsoft. You will be our HRIS system expert and manage the configurations and technical application of the system. This role will administer the full scope of HRIS system management from testing and configuration to reporting and analysis, to integration with other internal systems at Dept.

You will provide technical guidance, training, and direction on the administration of the HR tools and systems, as well as manage permissions and custom settings for local People & Culture teams. This role will perform a variety of day-to-day HRIS functions and will play a key role in developing mature and accurate HR data. You will work closely with key system users to ensure data integrity, testing of system changes, report writing, and analysing data flows for process improvement opportunities and system maintenance. You will lead the implementation of new HR tools and add-on modules to existing platforms. 

We are looking for someone who will not only support the technical administration and usage of the HR systems but will also extract and compile complex reports, perform data analysis, and communicate insights to global stakeholders. Furthermore, you will assist in the creation, optimisation and adaptation of business reports and dashboards utilising internal systems like PowerBI to assess Key Performance Indicators. 

We are a young company and the best minds work every day for a wide range of customers, such as Adidas, Steelseries,,, Samsung and Indigo. Yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn and strives towards a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to participate in curling activities once in a while. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who can strengthen our collective. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
