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.

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 Project 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.
