HR Project Manager - Newcastle upon Tyne

HR Project Manager Jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

HR Project Manager Jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.

In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.

Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.

Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.

Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new HR Project Manager vacancies.

Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
