HR Project Manager - Shrewsbury

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 Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury has always been a market town, as shown by its distinctive roads to Telford, Whitchurch, Oswestry, Welshpool and Ludlow. During the Industrial Revolution the town was linked by Shrewsbury Canal, which linked to the Shropshire canal, but again, it was used more to bring goods in than to take them out – the town remained largely unindustrialised. Railways also came in the nineteenth century, making Wolverhampton and the North and South of England easily accessible.

The town does have a thriving light industry scene, and has two important business parks, Shrewsbury Business Park and the Battlefield Enterprise Park. Sometimes HR Project Manager or similar jobs turn up in Shrewsbury or the surrounding area simply because it’s a relatively isolated town that has a large demand for goods to be brought in.

Although Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, it is actually only the second largest in the county (after Telford), but still has a sizeable population of around 100,000. As it is so close to the Welsh border, it acts as a magnet for many of the Welsh towns and villages along the country’s eastern side as well as those in the surrounding area. This has led to Shrewsbury becoming a very healthy shopping town; it is also a very pleasant place to live, with much of its medieval town centre still standing. Shrewsbury does have one very notable claim to fame, too – it was the birthplace of Charles Darwin.
