Regional HR Manager - Hartlepool

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.

The town of Hartlepool grew up around a monastery and abbey in the 7th century, and the population grew slowly to about 900 by the early 1800s. As the town grew, however, so did the docks, and its importance as a dock became larger when the railways arrived in the mid-1800s, connecting the town to the cities of the North West of England. This pushed Hartlepool to another level, and before long many shipping companies were setting up there.

Industry was soon to follow, with ironworks and shipyards locating in the town, which to this day boasts Europe’s largest dry dock.
