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.

The most northern of the counties in the north-east of England, Northumberland is bordered by Cumbria, County Durham and Tyne and Wear. It also shares a border with Scotland and has coastline on the North Sea.
Those looking for HR & Training Manager roles in Northumberland will have a variety of opportunities to consider, particularly in the major settlements, such as Morpeth, Ponteland, Prudhoe and Alnwick. Parts of the county are also common choices for those who want to work in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but live away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Northumberland has a tumultuous history. It was occupied by the Angles and Romans, and as an important location in the wars between Scotland and England, the region is known for having more castles than anywhere else in England. Many of these are now popular tourist destinations, such as Lindisfarne, Alnwick and Bamburgh.
The modern economy of Northumberland is predominantly based in tourism, as well as the service sector and retail.
A few large companies have factories in the area. These include SCA Hygiene - once part of Kimberly-Clark, the company manufactures paper products like tissues - and Hammerite Products, which makes paints and paint-thinning products.
Other large companies include Eclipse Translations, Barter Books and Thompsons of Prudhoe. There's also the Sanofi Alnwick Research Centre - it specialises in the research and testing of pharmaceuticals.
