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 Rochdale
Depending on your age and where you live, you might well associate Rochdale with Gracie Fields, Cyril Smith or Lisa Stansfield, all of whom have drawn attention to the town of the last century. Staff at Cast UK might well associate it with managing director Wayne Brophy - hopefully for all the right reasons! But for anyone in or around this town, it’s a fairly typical north-western market town that boomed during the milling and textile-making revolution of the 19th century. However, this industry did decline in the 20th century.
The town remains a large and thriving place, close enough to Manchester to be a commuter residence and trading partner, but far enough away to maintain its identity. It has excellent road and rail links with Manchester, with the M62 passing by Rochdale as is courses from the city to Leeds. The Metrolink tram line is due for completion in 2014. The town of Rochdale is home to about 100,000 people, but taking in all the settlements in the borough, the figure is over 200,000.
As with any large town, the population itself requires a large logistical effort to keep it fed, watered, clothed and stocked with life’s creature comforts. There’s a busy shopping area and a few trading estates dotted around the town. Many of the mill buildings are now used by small businesses or have been converted to living accommodation. Rochdale and Manchester do create HR Operations Manager positions, and both have important logistics, procurement and supply chain industries.
