The best HR plans are carefully project-managed to ensure that they are delivered on time and that their benefits and drawbacks are accurately measured. The HR project manager is in charge of taking the strategic aims of the company and ensuring they are implemented with regard to staffing, training and projection of future needs. They are key cogs in the machinery of a well-functioning company, especially one going through growth, restructuring or acquisition, when HR needs to be scheduled to perfection to maximize the effects of recruitment, relocation and training.
Essentially, the HR project manager is the link between the project team and the stakeholders, and provides system support to the team as a whole. Good HR project managers are highly valued members of the management team, and can save companies significant amounts of money through effectively making sure the strategic direction of the company is put into practice in a manner that is predictable, measurable and responsive.
Being a methodical planner is the most important personal attribute for the HR project manager. You will not only be receiving direct instruction from the board about recruitment, training and all the other facets of human resources – you will also be creating detailed plans and timetables to ensure the plans are made operational and that every stakeholder in the company has the details at their fingertips.
It’s possible that the company will put you in control of a certain aspect of HR rather than the entirety of an HR department’s planning. In such cases, expertise in that aspect (e.g. training, rewards, assessment) will be of use, along with a demonstrable ability to project manage them. Similarly, experience within the sector occupied by the employer will improve your chances of landing the role, as each sector has its own specific demands and parameters that are essential when project managing.

Located in northern England and less than ten miles from Leeds, Bradford is a thriving city in a prime location, making it perfect for anyone seeking HR Project Manager vacancies.
Because of the area's abundance of coal and iron ore, Bradford was one of the first parts of the UK to experience significant growth during the Industrial Revolution.
During this period, Bradford became known as the wool capital of the world, while an array of other products were also manufactured here. Many beautiful Victorian buildings that were built during this time are still standing today, giving a glimpse to the wealth that came into the city.
Since the 19th century, the textile industry has been in slow decline - although it still brings money into the local economy. Meanwhile, the financial, electronics, engineering and manufacturing sectors have grown to take its place.
Today, companies that are based in Bradford include Yorkshire Building Society, Pace Micro and Provident Financial, which owns Vanquis, a well-known credit card company.
Other big-name businesses that call Bradford home include Hallmark UK, Morrisons and Thomas Cook, while online retailer Freeman Grattan Holdings has been located in the city since 1934 when it was established as a mail-order company.
