Regional HR Manager - Blackburn

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 Blackburn

A large town in Lancashire, Blackburn is a busy place with many opportunities for those looking for Regional HR Manager vacancies. Plus, it's just nine miles from Preston and 20 miles from Manchester, thus offering an easy commute for those who live or work in these other locations.

From the middle of the 13th century, Blackburn was a mill town that produced textiles - and was once known as the weaving capital of the world. The spinning jenny, was invented by local James Hargreaves in 1764 and it paved the way for Blackburn to become one of the first industrialised towns.

After the end of the second world war, Blackburn's textile sector experienced a brief boost, and then fell into decline. Along with the rest of the region, a combination of deindustrialisation and global competition meant much of the work was outsourced abroad and the town suffered economically.

Today, Blackburn is experiencing a renewal, as the economy switches from manufacturing-led industries to the service sector. However, around 20 per cent of the local workforce is still based in manufacturing, with one major employer being BAE Systems.

Other top employers in Blackburn include the local council and Blackburn College, as well as the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

The IT, finance and communications sectors also play a big part in the local economy, and many of the leading companies in these fields can be found in places like Greenbank Business Park and Shadsworth Business Park.
