As companies expand and acquire new businesses, their multi-site operations can create new HR issues that were not present before. Successful growing companies predict these challenges by appointing a regional HR business partner, a managerial position that ensures the HR at the various locations is running to serve the overall aims of the company’s executives.
A degree of autonomy over various sites is generally a good thing if burdensome micromanagement from the board is to be avoided. But this only works if the operational managers at the locations are supervised with a light touch after being appraised of the company’s strategic aims. A regional HR business partner ensures that board level goals are interpreted and divulged to the managers at the various locations to satisfy their specific needs, taking into account what they contribute to the wider company.
To be a successful regional HR business partner, you should ideally have a background in applying HR strategy over various geographically connected locations, but most companies will consider candidates who have a great CV that shows extensive HR management experience. Because no two companies are the same, you can expect full training in the specifics of the business, but the experience you bring to the role will be a key consideration, as with all managerial roles.
It is likely that you will be required to travel quite extensively in your role, and while this might mean a few counties, it can also mean several countries, so the potential to disrupt family life could be an issue – and relevant language skills could be an advantage. You will need to be a good communicator to ensure the strategic aims of the company’s board are accurately reported and overseen throughout the various locations.
Right now companies across the UK are looking for regional HR business partners, and people are looking to take a step in the careers to become one. Cast UK’s job is to match the two. However unlike some recruitment consultancies, we don’t think of candidates as items on a production line. We get to know them, and because we have great relationships with the companies we work with, we ensure that only candidates who fit the company’s ethos and have the required skills go through to interview. That’s how we make a success of so many management and executive level appointments – and why companies come back to Cast UK time and time again.
If you’re looking to become a regional HR business partner or to carry your skills to another company and better your career, call us today on 0333 121 3345.
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 Regional HR Business Partner 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.
