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.



Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
