A company is only as effective as its employees, and its employees are only as good as their training. In many sectors, training has to be a continuous process as laws, technologies and optimum methodologies change constantly. In such businesses, ensuring training is completed can be a full-time job, and that is where the HR and training manager comes in. They are tasked with ensuring all staff members are fully up to speed on whatever systems and processes pertain to that business, and will also work strategically so that future training needs are met.
They also have other HR tasks to perform, but these vary depending on the size and nature of the business and which HR areas are already covered by other managers. In many cases, the HR and training manager spends much of their time designing and delivering training programmes and keeping records of the workforce’s attainments. As well as liaising with employees, there will be plenty of contact with senior management and possibly a legal team to ensure funding and compliance.
A solid background in HR is a basic requirement of the HR and training manager. This should ideally have been at a senior or managerial level so that the essential elements of human resources are covered. A background in designing and implementing training programmes is also a key asset, as many programmes are not off-the-shelf and are dependent upon the blend of disciplines present in the company.
Since all sectors have their own needs, you will ideally have HR, managerial and/or training experience in the same industry. Your communications skills also need to be right on the money as your programmes need to be understood and completed across the whole company, possibly for years.

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 & Training 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.
