HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER

A Human Resources Manager (HR Manager) deals with the recruitment, training, contracting, benefits and wellbeing of the staff at a sports organisation. They devise the club’s HR strategy and make sure it’s carried out in all areas of the business. Creating contracts for employees is a key part of the role, while they also oversee the payroll. Matters concerning equality, inclusion and anti-discrimination fall within the HR department, as do disciplinary and grievance procedures.

A HR Manager needs to be in touch with their employees. Listening to their needs and requests helps to maintain a happy and productive workforce.

RECOMMENDED EDUCATION

An undergraduate degree is essential. A broad range of subjects can lead to a career in Human Resources, with Psychology being favoured by employers. Often, completion of an undergraduate degree will lead to a graduate training programme in HR. Graduation from a training programme is deemed highly desirable.

RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE

A minimum of five years work as a HR Officer or equivalent is required. This will embed a sound knowledge of HR legislation and employment law while giving a good idea of best practice. Experience within sport is desirable but not essential.
