We’re Dojo

Since launching Dojo in 2019 to address business owners’ pain points across the UK, we’ve seen incredible growth as a scaling fintech, welcoming over 60,000 new customers and growing the Dojo team to 900+ people across five locations. In that time, we’ve also introduced Dojo Virtual Queues & Bookings and the Dojo restaurant finder app, formerly known as WalkUp and loved by 600 restaurants and 600,000 diners across the UK.

Today, we work towards our mission to empower businesses to thrive in the Experience Economy by creating the tools and technology that turn transactions into meaningful relationships. For our business customers, that means fast funding, the fastest payments, smart integrations, and efficient virtual queues & bookings - all with instant insight across the board. For over 600,000 diners across the UK, that means getting seated at their favourite restaurants in just a couple of taps on the Dojo app. Whether it’s for busy business owners or hungry diners, every Dojo product is built to address real customer pain points by our dedicated teams in London, Bristol, Hull and Belfast. 

The Role

We’re looking for a passionate People Advisor to join our growing team and support our Operations and Commercial functions. This is a great opportunity for a HR Generalist to gain exposure to all elements of the employee lifecycle and add real value to our People Operations team.  

You’ll support our people at every stage of their journey with Dojo, from onboarding, to in-life and through to exit of the business. 

What you will do …

  • Ownership of the administration of our employee lifecycle processes - not limited to but including onboarding/offboarding/change in terms/celebrating employee milestone moments

  • Respond to day to day employee queries via all relevant communication channels

  • Using our HRIS (Workday) and Engagement/Performance Platform to access, input and compile people data

  • Audit and own people data to ensure accuracy, problem solving issues and inaccuracies as they arise

  • Advise and coach our people leaders by providing generalist advice regarding Employee Relations queries and issues, and assist in more complex ER cases as needed

  • Proactively seek opportunities to improve our people experience, processes and data (e.g. via running 6 week check-ins and new starter feedback breakfasts)

  • Support People Partners and Talent Acquisition Partners with information to support their strategy and decision making (e.g. new starter/exit interview data)

  • Develop and maintain engaging company-wide frameworks and policies

  • Assist in wider project work and People team initiatives 

  • Ensure business compliance from a people perspective

What you will bring …

  • Proven experience in a similar role, providing generalist HR support in a fast paced environment 

  • Good working knowledge on policies and procedures, employment law and best practice 

  • A relentless people centric approach, with a passion for adding value to every step of the people lifecycle 

  • Computer literacy, ideally proficient with Google suite - and an added benefit would be experience using an HRIS

  • Excellent organisational & interpersonal skills

  • Flexibility and adapability; we’re growing fast and that can mean things change fast so you’ll need to be able to think on your feet

  • CIPD Level 5 (or working towards) desirable but not essential 

Our values

At Dojo, we’re curious . We have an insatiable desire to learn and innovate. And we’re relentless . We persevere even when it’s easier not to. But, we’re nothing without our customers, who drive everything we do. From day one, Dojo was built on real customer pain points and every one of us is customer-obsessed

Creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive Dojo

Dojo’s 60,000+ customers reflect the diversity of the UK High Street. Building diverse teams that are representative of that to develop and deliver our business strategy is fundamental to continuing to create innovative products at Dojo. As a result, together, we achieve better outcomes for our customers and for Dojo. 

Regardless of age, disability, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, culture, educational background, parental status, neurodiversity or disability - whoever you are, if you’re passionate about your work, curious, relentless and customer-obsessed, we want to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on fostering a sense of community, which is only made stronger by each individual at Dojo, so you'll have the opportunity to meet a variety of people across levels, teams, and experiences throughout the interview process.
