HR Business Partner - Cheshire

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 Cheshire

A ceremonial county in the North West of England, Cheshire is situated on the River Mersey and is home to a number of cities and towns, including Chester, Warrington, Widnes, Crewe, Ellesmere Port and Macclesfield.

For hundreds of years, the region has been known for its production of cheese, salt, chemicals and textiles - especially woven silk - while agriculture has also provided a longstanding boost to the area's economy.

During the Industrial Revolution, Cheshire experienced significant growth, particularly due to the fact that the Manchester Ship Canal and other such waterways pass through the area.

In addition, Crewe held a prominent position in the country's railroad industry, as it was the location of a major junction, as well as the Crewe Railway Works, a leading producer of locomotives.

These days, Cheshire is home to a vast number of companies, making it an ideal choice for those seeking HR Business Partner vacancies.

Salt mining and chemicals are still an important part of Cheshire's economy, with companies like British Salt, Ineos and Brunner Mond, as well as the Stanlow Refinery at Ellesmere Port.

Meanwhile, other industries gained prominence - like bio-technology, financial services, ICT and manufacturing.

Just some of the big names you'll find in the region include Jaguar, Vauxhall, Bentley, Mornflake, United Utilities and Pets at Home. In addition, Woodford Aerodrome is a facility of BAE Systems that has produced aircraft ranging from passenger jets to military bombers.
