HR Director: a key member of the team

Being responsible for the humans within the business isn’t for the faint-hearted and more suited to those who are organised, empathetic, structured and capable of withstanding both the existing and ever-increasing deluge of regulations.

Many of the things that were once ‘permissible’ in workplaces of the past are now considered highly unsuitable and your diplomacy and skills as both mediator and executioner will certainly test your ability to balance the duties.

Already occupying a senior HR role, you’ll understand the day to day responsibilities include;

  • Recruitment and dismissals
  • Retention targets
  • Environmental and personal well-being
  • Dispute resolution
  • Upskilling, training and education
  • HR policy setting

The HR director role

This is an extremely demanding yet fulfilling position as you’ll be the person everybody looks towards to not only create a positive environment but to solve all those important issues that arise daily.

However, it’s a satisfying career and one where you might find you remain in position for some time as the rewards can be exceptional. As can the sense of belonging you will create, being responsible for the entire human activity within the company. Once you’ve shaped the entire collective face of a high performing organisation, it’s never a position one can leave lightly.

Rewards are commensurate with the gravity of the position and salaries within this sector are amongst the best in any company, even compared to salaries within the c-suite roles, thus verifying the value placed on your work.

I was very impressed with Alexander Hancock’s recruitment services. I was invited into their offices for an interview and given the choice of two immediate vacancies, both of which sounded fabulous. Anneliese organised an interview straight away that week with one of the companies. During that week I received an amazing amount of support including interview technique. I even had a reminder call on the day of the interview. I then received update calls regarding company feedback and reaction after the interview-and when I got the job Anneliese was straight on the phone to give me the good news. The support didn’t end there… I have had calls to confirm that the contract is on its way and making sure I was happy with every thing. The service has been so friendly and supportive,I can’t thank Anneliese enough! I’ll definitely be recommending this agency to anyone who is looking for employment. (I am still waiting to hear from other agencies in Manchester that I signed on with!!)
