HR and Training Manager Jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

HR & Training Manager Jobs in Shetland

Shetland is the name given to the council area that coincides with what is commonly known as the Shetland Islands. The islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, 130 miles (215 km) north east of John O’Groats. The main bulk of the islands themselves are some 70 miles (110 km) from north to south, but roughly only 25 miles (40 km) east to west. The islands have only been part of Scotland since the 1500s, and have strong links with Scandinavia. Norway is just 200 miles (320 km) to the east, a short hop on a longboat.

The main administrative headquarters is Lerwick, whose 7000 population accounts for about a third of the Islands’ total. The islands have a basic road system and a ferry system links its 16 inhabited islands as well as Orkney and Aberdeen. Despite being small, the island’s inhabitants still have modern needs, and this will necessarily require a good deal of contact with the mainland. This could open up opportunities for such HR & Training Manager positions and the proximity to the North Sea oil fields is also economically positive.
