Group HR Director - Cumberland
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 Cumberland
An administrative county from 1889 to 1974, Cumberland was situated on the border with western Scotland and is, today, part of Cumbria. The region is probably best known for its tasty sausages, but it also offers an array of choice for those seeking Group HR Director vacancies.
Cumberland was first recorded in the Anglo Saxon Chronicle in the 10th century. It was also an important spot during the Roman period, as it marked the western end of Hadrian's Wall.
For much of the region's history, its economy has relied on agriculture, as well as other industries like mining for coal and iron ore. Stone quarrying has also been an important industry for the area - particularly during the Industrial Revolution.
Today, the Cumberland region is mainly characterised by charming villages and sweeping landscapes. The local economy is mainly based in retail, the service sector and tourism.
Some of the companies that are based in the Cumberland area, or which have important facilities in the region, include McVitie's, Carr's Flour Mills, Bendall's Engineering and Innovia Films, which manufactures a variety of plastic products from cellophane for packaging and plastic labels, through to the substrate used for the plastic banknotes found in Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam.
