Group HR Director - Sheffield
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 Sheffield
Situated in South Yorkshire , Sheffield was a prominent player in the steel industry for hundreds of years. This began with the manufacture of cutlery in the 1500s and grew with the discovery of crucible steel in the 1740s.
Further innovations included Sheffield plating and the creation of stainless steel, an important development in the industrial revolution that led to a significant increase in the city's population. By the 19th century, the city had become pivotal in the steel industry.
Ironwork and coal mining were also big business in the region, while the outlying areas produced limestone - including the stone used to build the Palace of Westminster.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Sheffield suffered economically as the coal industry collapsed and the iron and steel industries struggled with international competition. Over the last ten years, however, the city has experienced a rebirth and it is now a fashionable destination known for its shopping and green spaces.
Today, the only remaining steelworks is Forgemasters. The city's economy has moved on and for those seeking Group HR Director vacancies in Sheffield, the major industries now include telecommunications, manufacturing and construction. Some of the top employers include BT, Land Instruments International, Barclays and Swann Morton.
