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.

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
