Head of Engagement Jobs
Engagement is not just a marketing buzzword; in corporations, it is the key to ensure you are maximizing the potential of your most valuable asset – your employees. How is this achieved? Well, as head of engagement, you will be expected to work out the route to optimum engagement for your team. You will be expected to come up with innovative leadership strategies and put them into action via your team.
When you set up a successful strategy within a department or location, the role becomes more consultative as you roll out new or modified strategies over multiple locations and departments. Your success will be measured in terms of employee satisfaction in the shape of retention and turnover.
The skills required
Typically, heads of engagement roles are filled by people from an HR background who have been instrumental in driving change within their employment culture. An understanding of what makes employees tick and how that can be applied to their jobs is a given, but so is demonstrating that this can be achieved within budgetary restraints and in line with the strategic aims of the company.
You will need to be an enthusiastic and personable type, who will be able to carry employees with you on your projects. This can be difficult with diverse workforces, but being able to understand employees’ motivations and how to incentivize them will be of great help.
Head of Engagement Jobs in Hereford
Herefordshire is a county full of small towns, as is proved by the fact that its county town, Hereford, has a population of just 55,000 and is the county’s most populous settlement. It is located right in the middle of the county, which is wedged between Wales to the west and Worcestershire to the east. The town itself is 45 miles (73 km) south west of Birmingham, the same distance south of Shrewsbury and 25 miles (40 km) north west of Cheltenham. The nearest motorway is the M50, which comes to an abrupt stop 10 miles from the city limits.
One of the reasons for Herefordshire’s low population is that the county is largely agricultural; the Hereford is one of the UK’s most famous cattle breeds. Hereford cider is also well known. We all remember Woodpecker Cider, Hereford lightning … Don’t we? Hereford was a market town as well as a centre for religion and governance.
In modern times, Hereford is a hard working town, and still has a reputation for brewing and agricultural products. Bulmers makes Strongbow, Bulmers Cider and the aforementioned Woodpecker, but there are also Spinning Dog brewery, Wye Valley brewery and Weston’s Cider to keep the locals occupied (some of it makes it out of town too). With such a strong and popular market for nationally known products, Hereford could be a good place to seek Head of Engagement work at the moment.
