Regional HR Manager Jobs
Businesses that are nationwide or multi-site need a unified and predictable employee resourcing strategy that ensures staffing is always kept at the optimum level and that the individual HR demands of the industry are met. The regional HR manager operates in the position between a board dealing with national or international HR and HR managers of the various locations within a region. Note that a “region” to a multinational operation can cover anything from a few towns to a few nations.
Regional HR managers work closely with operational managers to implement the company’s HR strategy as decided by the board. That includes staffing, projection of new schemes and policies, implementation of new laws and guidelines affecting the industry, and overseeing the HR needs of restructuring, expansion and entering new markets.
The skills required
Typically, a regional HR manager will have a solid background in managing the human resources of a company, so will have a confident understanding of the general needs of the role. In many ways the job is similar but scaled up, the main difference being that communication tends not to be with individual operational staff at the location but with their HR managers. That requires a different set of communication skills, so being able to demonstrate this ability will be of great benefit to you.
While much of the work of the regional HR manager is carried out at a regional HQ or the main business headquarters, it is likely that you will need to travel to various locations regularly to ensure that HR policies are implemented correctly and that site HR managers are following the company’s strategy.
Regional HR Manager Jobs in Bedford
Bedford is a town of about 80,000 people situated in the heart of England, about halfway between London and Leicester. With its surrounding towns the population of the urban area tops 100,000, but it remains a relatively small town as county towns go. (In case you were wondering, it’s the county town of Bedfordshire.) The town has a largely rural past, but the growth in population has seen the usual diversity of small industries, retail and local government spring to life, and this is where the majority of the town’s employment comes from.
The world of TV, especially in the 1970s, would not have been the same without the Bedford influence. Sitcom stars Ronnie Barker and John le Mesurier were both born in the town, and much of Some Mothers do ’Ave ’Em was filmed in the town. Bedford also produced sometime Countdown maths genius and all-round numerically astute adder-upper Carol Vorderman.
As the largest town surrounded by several hundred square miles of countryside and within commuting distance from Milton Keynes, Northampton and Luton, Bedford has become something of a hub in the region. This does mean that sometimes Regional HR Manager positions come up to fill the town’s natural need for procurement, logistics and supply chain managers and executives.
