Employee Relations Manager - East Midlands

Employee Relations Manager Jobs

The employment of people brings with it a certain amount of rights and responsibilities alongside wonderful opportunities. The way a company deals with its staff not only influences its productivity and employee satisfaction; it also affects how it is seen to the outside world, and that in turn can affect the calibre of applicants when positions become available. The employer relations manager is a key piece of the puzzle. They are advocates for the staff to the management, but also advocates of the management to the staff.

As well as overseeing staffing strategy of the company, the employee relations manager will be involved day to day in ensuring the legal aspects of employment are taken into account in all business decisions. But because policy changes and implementation can have profound effects on employees, the ERM might also be involved with dealing with trade unions to negotiate and explain changes in working practices.

The skills required

To deal with such highly organized and motivated individuals and organizations such as unions, requires a strength of character, an attention to detail and a forensic approach to communication across the company. A thorough knowledge of employment law, particularly in the company’s sector, and also generally, will be of benefit to the candidate seeking an employer relations manager role.

Because of the HR tasks involved in the role, a firm backing in HR to managerial level will be required. The rewards for this job, however, can be immense, with pride and satisfaction coming from a well thought out strategy that delivers on company policy with the minimum of interference. In large companies this role is highly prized and remunerated; motivated and conscientious experts will relish the opportunity.
