HR Director Jobs Overview

In any organisation with a significant workforce, the need often arises for employee management. The responsibility of overseeing day-to-day personnel matters – recruitment, internal conflict resolution, payroll, etc. – falls to the Human Resources department. When a company is particularly large, this department will report to a senior HR Director.

HR Director jobs are an ideal fit for those with a keen organisational mind and who don’t balk at the idea of maintaining efficient performance and the workplace satisfaction of hundreds of individuals. A good working knowledge of relevant industry regulations is vital, as a key function of this role is to ensure that employee training records are up to date and that necessary CPD is completed across the business in a timely fashion.

Beyond this, responsibilities typically include recording and analysing information on staff turnover rates, co-ordinate maternity and paternity leave when required, and acting as the overall ‘public face’ of the human resources department so that employees know to whom to turn when requiring advice concerning things other than the functions of their role.

HR Director Jobs Education Requirements

As is typical of management positions in the best firms, both undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications are highly desirable; many higher education institutions will offer degrees in ‘Human Resources Management’. Just as important, if not more so, is prior experience in management and human resources, and many working in HR Director jobs will have cut their teeth by having held HR administrator jobs or HR manager jobs.

HR Director Jobs Market

As these tend to be corporate roles, the job market for HR Director jobs is dictated by the state of the business sector. Statistics from the National Careers Service estimate the number employed in this sector to increase at a steady rate of approximately 3000 per year between now and 2020.

HR Director Jobs Salary Information

A 2016 survey of 425 individuals reported a median annual salary of £64,938, reflecting the importance of the senior HR Director to effective business performance.
