Staff that work in human resources (HR) deal with all issues relating to the employment of staff, both clinical and non-clinical within the organisation. You will usually be office based within the organisation.
In this role you could manage the recruitment of staff, introduce new employment policies, keep up to date records on colleagues throughout the organisation, work closely with professional bodies and health unions or be an expert in employment law (right to work, working hours, equality and diversity etc.). Your role may also include being supportive and advisory to clinical and non-clinical managers on different issues for example:
- Absence – including study leave, holiday leave and sick leave
- Performance management – making sure that staff are doing their job as they should be.
