Group HR Director - Barnsley
Group HR Director Jobs
It is important that all companies have a solid structure in place to manage human resources, but what happens when companies are joined together under a group umbrella? In such cases, the group usually appoints a group HR director charged with overseeing the employment situation across all locations. As board members, they are aware of the group’s strategic aims, and are able to base HR decisions on first-hand knowledge. They then give and take guidance from the HR managers and directors within each business.
Group HR directors are key elements in the business, as the buck will stop with them when recruitment, compensation, dismissal or grievances become issues. The group HR director may also be charged with creating initiatives to ensure employees are engaged, profitable and motivated enough to fulfil the productivity projections laid down by the board.
The skills required
The group HR director is a key position when it comes to human resources in a group. You will ideally have plenty of experience of high-level HR management or directorship with a large company, but if you have experience directing HR in a group, that will be a key asset. HR experience from within the particular industry in which the position is being filled will also be advantageous, as all industries have their own needs and expectations. However, as many groups have a diverse set of component companies, a demonstrable ability to quickly pick up and manage their different needs will be valued.
In short, you are going to need to be a high calibre HR professional who has risen through the ranks in HR over a long career. Being a board member has its own responsibilities, and you will need to be able to demonstrate that you are not only a safe pair of hands but that you can manage crises and come up with workable initiatives to maximize staff engagement.

Group HR Director Jobs in Barnsley
Barnsley is a town of about 75,000 population in South Yorkshire. Roughly speaking it would be the centre point of a circle that passed though Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster and Huddersfield, each of which is about 14 miles (25 km) away. To its south west is the beautiful Peak District National Park. Barnsley is served by the M1 running north-south, as well as the Sheffield to Leeds railway.
Barnsley was originally a market town and also traveller’s rest location for people moving to and from Leeds and Sheffield, but the discovery of coal and the Industrial Revolution turned it into a powerhouse of productivity. The Barnsley Canal was completed at the start of the nineteenth century, and although it was closed in the mid-20th century (partly due to subsidence from mining, ironically), there is a campaign to get it fixed, dredged and reopened for recreation. Much of the heavy industry has now gone, although one of its specialisms, glassmaking, remains active. A glassblower and a miner appear on Barnsley’s coat of arms.
The town has given us a number of famous people, particularly in sport. Cricket without Dickie Bird and Darren Gough would not be quite the same, and football was made a little more colourful by Mick McCarthey. Perhaps the most famous child of Barnsley, though, is chat show host to the stars of the 70s and 80s, Michael Parkinson.
While Barnsley’s industrial base is a shadow of its former self, it is still possible to find Group HR Director positions in the town. It has a sizeable population and serves a wide area, with no other major settlements closer than the cities of Sheffield and Leeds.
