What can I earn as an HR manager in Wales?

How to get into it…


An HR manager will normally have started out as an HR officer or adviser, gaining experience in a number of key HR areas, such as disciplinary proceedings or tribunal hearings. Previous experience of staff management will improve your chances of landing this type of role.



What you need to succeed…


Five years’ HR experience and the CIPD qualification are fairly standard requirements, along with a good degree. If you have gained practical experience in a similar type of company or organisation, this will be an advantage.



What is involved…


This will obviously depend on the size and type of organisation, and the structure of the HR department itself. Generally speaking, though, you will normally be expected to give advice and guidance on all areas of HR, help develop your organisation’s policies and strategies and ultimately be responsible for the effective running of the HR department.


Prospects…


Good, especially if you are considering a move from a commercial organisation into a public sector one. Organisations in the public sector are often keen to bring in those with commercial backgrounds and they value the HR function very highly.


Although the salaries offered are slightly lower in this sector, they are increasing, and the benefits tend to be better as well.
