HR Operations Manager - Northern Ireland

HR Operations Manager Jobs

With the complex staffing needs of a busy company, the importance of the HR operations manager cannot be overstated. Their principal role is to make sure the strategic business plans of the board are fulfilled from the HR perspective, which means that they will have to make key decisions on recruitment, training and redundancies as necessary. This could be over a single department or site, or over a entire company with multiple locations.

The HR manager could be part of a team of managers under an HR director, and could be in charge of an HR team or working independently, depending on the size and structure of the company. Either way, they need to report to the board with their decisions regarding staffing needs, and may have to work out means of delivering the board’s aims within tight budgetary constraints to maintain profitability. Success is measured in terms of how the manager’s policies and decisions impact on the profitability and productivity of the company or department under their management.

The skills required

A background in HR is an essential element of this role, preferably to management level but many companies recognize that HR is often a one-person job in many small to medium companies and the skill-set picked up will be advanced despite the lack of a formal management title. If the experience is in the same industry as that of the position being filled, that will be a bonus, as different sectors have widely varying HR needs.

You also need to be an excellent communicator with a proven ability to take strategic instructions from the board and interpret them into actionable plans that bring measurable benefits to the company. Many companies require CIPD or equivalent work-based training qualifications as an entry condition, but others may be willing to take talented HR professionals through to such qualifications.

HR Operations Manager 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 HR Operations Manager 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.
