Human Resources Jobs

Human Resources Job Overview

Human resources professionals (also known as recruitment or personnel officers) are responsible for developing and implementing employment standards and recruitment practices within a company. They are also in charge of devising training and development plans for the workforce. Other typical responsibilities include carrying out performance appraisals, interviewing candidates, writing job descriptions, training new staff, devising career progression paths, keeping staff records, and negotiating employment terms and conditions with employees, agencies, or trade unions. Human resources officers must have outstanding interpersonal skills, be discreet, tactful, and firm, and be able to work as part of a team. Conflict-resolution skills are important, and so is having knowledge of health and safety and equal opportunities policies. Knowledge of specialised IT (payroll) software is a bonus. HR work often takes place during office hours (9-5, Monday to Friday). Full- and part-time job opportunities are available.

Human Resources Job Education Requirements

There are two entry paths into this profession. The first involves having a relevant BTEC, HNC, HND, or university degree in a related subject. Candidates who do not meet this requirement but have previous office experience are often required to study towards a Level 3 CIPD certificate. Continuous professional development is crucial in this industry, and employers often ask that HR professionals work towards a number of CIPD qualifications throughout their career.

Human Resources Job Market

Recent statistics show that there is a shortage of skilled candidates in the HR industry. It is expected that the HR job market will continue to consolidate up until 2020. Related in-demand occupations include staffing specialists, equal employment opportunity managers, and corporate training managers.

Human Resources Job Salaries

According to the most recent studies, starting salaries in this industry are £15,000/year. Mid-level human resources professionals can earn between £32,000 and £36,000 per year. HR assistants earn slightly less, with average salaries being around £23,000. The highest paying jobs include roles in HR consultancy (£49,000/year) and in organisational development (£59,000/year). Average salaries for HR directors are £80,000 a year.
