Regional HR Manager - Wales

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 Wales

Known for its stunning coastlines and charming villages, sweeping landscapes and bustling cities and towns like Cardiff, Swansea, Barry, Newport and Aberystwyth, Wales offers an array of opportunities for those seeking Regional HR Manager vacancies.

With the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the Welsh economy expanded significantly and the few small industries that existed before the 18th century - such as agriculture, milling, textile production and mining - all grew rapidly.

Techniques for copper smelting were developed in Swansea, while ironwork, slate quarrying and coal mining were also big business. Meanwhile, the Cardiff docks were extremely important during the 19th century for the shipment of coal and steelwork.

Today, Wales has a predominately post-industrial economy and the service sector has grown significantly since the end of the second world war. A number of financial companies have regional headquarters here, including Legal & General, HBOS, ING Direct, the AA and BT.

In addition, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is situated in Swansea - it maintains a database of vehicles in Great Britain and deals with other tasks like selling private number plates and issuing licences.

While heavy industry in Wales has declined over the years, the country is still home to a number of manufacturing and steelmaking facilities. Indeed, the Port Talbot Steel Works produces around five million tonnes of steel every year. There are also two oil refineries in Milford Haven, as well as a Ford engine factory in Bridgend.

Agriculture and food production are another element to the Welsh economy, while forestry and fishing are small but thriving industries in the region.
