People Manager - Newcastle upon Tyne

People Manager Jobs

Whatever sector a company operates in, its people are its lifeblood. Every business owner wants their company to be a thriving place, full of opportunity and dynamism, and having satisfied employees is a key part of that equation. This realization has led to the rise of the people manager, a role whose importance cannot be underestimated in a hyperconnected world where new employment opportunities are easier than ever to find.

One of the people manager’s key roles is to attract the best and most appropriate candidates to the business. This has sales and PR elements to it, but in some companies the people manager will have the ear of the board, and can influence company policy to better attract the best talent. And once the talent has been won, the people manager will be charged with ensuring they not only stick around, but also grow, thrive and inspire their colleagues through initiatives aimed at reward and satisfaction. Companies with low staffing churn always develop a discernible identity and ethos that ensures everyone is pulling in the same direction. A good people manager can make this happen.

The skills required

People managers have that rare blend of strength of character and approachability. You will need to be able to communicate with employees, board members and peers in an open and honest way in order to allow the organisation’s message to flow through it and to project to the outside world. Companies who employ people managers are already showing that they are sold on the idea of employee retention and talent attraction as having real long-term value, so to land these roles you’ll need to demonstrate that you’re bursting with ideas and have the experience to see them through.

Experience in the sector of the company will help with your chances. All sectors have their own subtle differences when it comes to how employees respond to certain initiatives and motivations, and sometimes those with a generic knowledge of people management would overlook these factors.

People Manager Jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne

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 People 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.
