42A Human Resources Specialist

Company: Army National Guard
Location: Plymouth Meeting
Posted on: November 12, 2019

Job Description:

When a Soldier has a question about benefits, policy, or needs help with a sensitive issue, the Army National Guard's Human Resources Specialist is the primary go-to person. As an HR Specialist, you will help Soldiers develop their Guard careers and provide personnel support and assistance to all divisions within the Guard.

Specific responsibilities of the HR Specialist may include: organizing, maintaining, and reviewing personnel records; data entry and retrieval; processing recommendations; arranging awards ceremonies; preparing, updating, and coordinating requests for evaluations; preparing and monitoring Soldier requests for ID cards and tags, leaves of absence, and passes; ordering and maintaining office supplies; and maintaining filing systems.

Job Duties
• Assist on all human resource support matters

Helpful Skills

Plus, you'll be building a better future. In civilian life, an HR Specialist could work in any business that requires personnel or human resources experience.
