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 Julie Taggart from Lidl to give some advice for people considering this job:
The HR role is one that continually evolves. I would say that if you are considering this role you need to be able to adapt and embrace change easily.
In my opinion HR plays a positive and influential role in any company and good business acumen, knowledge and understanding of your people, policies and legislation are important.
It is vital that you have the ability to get on well with others as the role can involve resolving disputes and encouraging good relations in the workplace. Communication is key in this role and having the ability to keep a balanced and fair view of situations is a necessity. A rewarding role that continually inspires you to want to achieve more on a professional and personal level.
