Group HR Director - Northern Ireland
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 Northern Ireland
The smallest country in the UK, Northern Ireland has traditionally been associated with industries like shipping, rope making and textile manufacture. In fact, during the American Civil War, the supply of cotton from the States was cut and Belfast gained the nickname Linenopolis, as Irish linen helped to alleviate problems caused by the shortage.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Belfast was home to many of the world's top shipbuilders, including Harland and Wolff, the firm that went on to build the RMS Titanic, her sisters the Britannic and Olympic and other vessels like the HMS Belfast during the early 20th century.
Northern Ireland has also seen its share of violence and civil unrest, during a period known as the Troubles, which lasted from the late 1960s until the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.
Since then, the country has grown more stable and a number of redevelopment projects have helped to turn Northern Ireland into a thriving place with an economy based mainly in the service sector - although many of the older business are still in operation. What's more, there are plenty of opportunities for those seeking Group HR Director vacancies.
Just some of the companies with regional headquarters or other facilities in the region include DuPont and Caterpillar. In addition, Short Brothers, one of the first companies in the world to produce aircraft, moved to Northern Ireland in 1948 - today it owned by Bombardier Aerospace and produces flight control systems and other components.
