HR Business Partner - Aberdeen

HR Business Partner Jobs

As the name suggests, the HR business partner is an important influencer of the direction a company takes with regard to its employees. He or she ensures strategic aims laid down by the board are implemented at location or site level, depending on the size and nature of the company. The HR business partner might have slightly different responsibilities to a HR manager, for example, in that the role will probably involve working alongside a manager and advising them rather than tackling the hands-on business of managing a site’s staff. However, different organisations place different requirements of the HR BP, and in some companies there is a good deal of crossover.

The business partner may work more closely with the directors than a manager would. They have a very close handle on the strategic planning of the wider company and may even have influence within the board. All this points towards a skilled member of the team, with a vitally important strategic role.

The skills required

Many employers have CIPD and/or degree qualification as a primary requirement for the role of HR business partner as companies are looking for an impressive amount of knowledge of personal development. Experience within the relevant sector is also useful, as different types of work have varying requirements and infrastructures that need to be understood from day one.

An ability to communicate clearly and unambiguously with members of the company at all levels is an essential attribute. Strategic direction is not just imposed from the top of a modern company; it is often arrived at organically by having a flow of information from the operatives to the directors and vice versa. As HR business partner, you will be the interpreter and conduit of that information. Done well, you could have a phenomenal effect on the business’s fortunes.

HR Business Partner Jobs in Aberdeen

Scotland's third most populous city after Edinburgh and Glasgow, Aberdeen is also known as the Granite City, since many of its beautiful 18th and 19th century buildings are constructed from the local stone. It's a great place for those seeking HR Business Partner vacancies.

There have been settlements in the region for over 8,000 years and it was an important site during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

Significant expansion occurred during the 19th century, with the growth of the shipbuilding and fishing industries, as well as textiles, metalwork, papermaking and stone quarrying. Much of the existing harbour was built during this time, including the Victoria Dock, the South Breakwater and part of the North Pier.

During the late 20th century, oil was discovered in the North Sea and Aberdeen has since become known as the oil capital of Europe. A number of off-shore oil rigs have been erected and companies in the region have begun to focus their efforts on finding renewable energy sources as well.

In addition to the energy and petrochemicals sector, Aberdeen is home to various research facilities that study everything from fisheries, soil, food, nutrition and agriculture through to technology and electronics design.

Just some of the firms that call Aberdeen home include Abbot Group Ltd, Dana Petroleum, Wood Group and Aberdeen Asset Management.
