HR Business Partner - York

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 York

Known for its towering cathedral and tiny medieval streets that weave through the centre, York may seem old-fashioned in some places, but it offers a wealth of modern-day opportunities for those seeking HR Business Partner vacancies.

Of course, behind York's modern charm lies a city with a long history dating back thousands of years. Archaeological evidence has been found of a Mesolithic settlement from around 8000 BC, while there are also ruins of Roman and Anglo buildings.

Until the Industrial Revolution, York was a prominent trading town, although this dwindled in the 17th century as the city's main competitors, Leeds and Hull, began to take over.

However, the railway made it to York in 1839 and the city once again became a prominent location for the British economy. Indeed, companies like the North Eastern Railway, Rowntrees and Terry's were all based in the region during this time - and continued to be throughout the 20th century.

These days, much of York's business is in the service industry, including finance, IT and tourism. Some of the top employers in the region include Aviva, Shepherd Building Group and British Telecom.

Much of the confectionary industry has disappeared from York in the recent past, with a significant portion of production being moved abroad. However, Nestle still has headquarters and a large manufacturing and distribution facility in the city, making tasty treats like KitKats and Yorkie bars.
