HR Operations Manager - Shetland

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 Shetland

Shetland is the name given to the council area that coincides with what is commonly known as the Shetland Islands. The islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, 130 miles (215 km) north east of John O’Groats. The main bulk of the islands themselves are some 70 miles (110 km) from north to south, but roughly only 25 miles (40 km) east to west. The islands have only been part of Scotland since the 1500s, and have strong links with Scandinavia. Norway is just 200 miles (320 km) to the east, a short hop on a longboat.

The main administrative headquarters is Lerwick, whose 7000 population accounts for about a third of the Islands’ total. The islands have a basic road system and a ferry system links its 16 inhabited islands as well as Orkney and Aberdeen. Despite being small, the island’s inhabitants still have modern needs, and this will necessarily require a good deal of contact with the mainland. This could open up opportunities for such HR Operations Manager positions and the proximity to the North Sea oil fields is also economically positive.
