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.
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.

A new town situated in Shropshire, Telford is located around 30 miles from Birmingham and is one of the fastest growing settlements in the UK, making it a great choice for those seeking HR Business Partner vacancies.
Most of Telford was built in the 1960s and 1970s on what had previously been industrial and agricultural land. However, people have been living in the region for thousands of years and evidence has been found of Roman roads and other ancient settlements. In its early days, the region's economy was based mainly in the mining of coal and ironstone, as well as metalworking.
As a planned town, Telford has been carefully laid out, with loads of residential property and plenty of retail outlets. What's more, the road infrastructure means that it's easy to travel between Telford and other destinations like Birmingham, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.
In recent years, further regeneration and expansion have occurred to make the area even more attractive for businesses and residents.
These days, much of Telford's economy is based in the service sector and IT industries. Companies like Hitachi, Maxell and Nokia have offices or manufacturing facilities in the area, while other companies include GKN, Siemens and Fruit of the Loom.
