Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Sarah Lynch from Bank of Ireland to give some advice for people considering this job:
I would encourage anyone who was considering a role in HR to get a HR qualification and to become a member of the CIPD.
Whilst these are not essential requirements for all starter roles in HR, they will be extremely beneficial when trying to progress from there.
