Head of Engagement - Northern Ireland

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 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 Head of Engagement 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.
