Basic Functions of HR include:
Talent Acquisition & Recruitment
Performance Management & Training
Learning & Development
Diversity & Inclusion
HR Systems
Compensation & Benefits
Mobility
HR Operations, Compliance & Payroll

Opportunities to further your career within the HR industry

HR provides you with a career that can allow you to be exposed to a broad range of organisational challenges, whether working as a HR Generalist or in a more specialised function. Human Resources bridges across industries and sectors, countries and regions, from small start-ups to Fortune 100 organisations. It’s the heart of an organisation and centric to growth, sustainability, and culture of a successful company. Today’s HR practitioner blends the commercial outcomes of the business with harnessing people’s performance and engagement to deliver stronger business objectives.

Salt’s advice for getting a job in the HR industry

  • Employers’ Requirements

    Most HR jobs require excellent communication skills, an understanding of the employee life cycle, data and analytical skills, and in most cases, a tertiary degree. Understanding and researching each employer and industry they work in is critical to building a “forward-thinking” plan that supports the “future of work” for that organisation. The continued evolution of HR, its organisational impact and how technology can support this transformation will continue to be relative and centric to all companies.

  • CV Requirements

    When applying for jobs in HR, there are several key elements which should not be omitted from any CV. Key skills and competencies, experience, and achievements are all essential inclusions. Employers will want to know that you can work well across departments and have a solid grounding in systems, which drive modern HR processes and practices.

  • Interview Preparation

    Interviews for HR jobs are often split across several stages, with the first usually being a behavioural assessment with jobseekers. If that goes well, you will be invited for further meetings with senior management or key decision-makers within the company. These may involve psychometric testing, demonstrating computer skills or giving a prepared presentation.

  • Educational Requirements

    Organisations will often prioritise candidates who have relevant qualifications in business, employment law or human resources management. Humanities degrees in subjects like psychology may also stand you in good stead. For more specialised HR roles, postgraduate courses in HR will improve your chances in the eyes of any prospective employers.

Top Tip

"Keep yourself abreast of technological changes, build your business partnering skills, be agile, adaptable, and ensure the work you perform is adding value to the organisation."
