Group HR Director - Shropshire

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.
