It’s almost becoming a cliché now, but good people really do make a company succeed. As a company reaches a certain level of staffing, the need for a dedicated People Director inevitably becomes more pressing. Their role is to ensure the HR department is working in the best interests of the company by attracting the best talent available for the roles and to ensure that talent is retained.
People Directors also have an important role in influencing and driving cultural change throughout the company. It’s a sensitive task that seeks to find the sweet spot where employees feel valued, respected and listened to as well as the strategic aims of the board being fulfilled. Get this right and attraction and retention will follow almost automatically, the net result being a company with minimal internal conflict and a sense of a shared goal that can have phenomenal long-term effects on a business and its employees’ careers there.
Needless to say, people skills are an essential component of being a people director. An understanding of what makes employees not just tick, but thrive in a corporate environment will be a key tool in your skill set.
Academic understanding of the psychology of excellence in employees is of enormous benefit, but a successful people director will also have had experience in running HR departments or overseeing the HR in a company at executive level. Because the people director’s decisions have budgetary implications, experience of handling budgets and performing cost-benefit analysis on human resource-related strategic plans will stand the prospective candidate in good stead.

Aviation enthusiasts will know straight away where Farnborough is, as it is the site of a world-famous air show. Every two years aviation companies from the defence and civil sectors descend on the town’s airport to demonstrate their wares and sign billion-dollar deals, and the general public are treated to aerobatics displays and low flypasts by the fastest and largest flying machines in the sky.
The town of Farnborough wraps around the north and east of the airport complex, located at the north-eastern tip of Hampshire. To its south is Aldershot, home to the famous barracks, and 14 miles (23 km) to the north west is Reading. The centre of London is 32 miles (50 km) north east. The M3 passes to Farnborough’s north as it connects Southampton with the M25. The town also has several railway stations connecting the aforementioned towns and cities.
Farnborough has a busy retail sector and some notable business parks, such as Farnborough Aerospace Centre and IQ Farnborough. The latter is a work in progress, but already hosts a BMW dealership, AgustaWestland, Autodesk, Bluhalo, Blue Coat Systems and Defence Strategy & Solutions among others. It’s a businesslike town that is well connected and affluent, so could well harbour People Director jobs as it goes about its work.
