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.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

CAO Medical Students HPAT Exam Results

Last Monday, HPAT Ireland exam results were released to several thousand candidates who have applied to the undergraduate medicine courses in five medical schools: UCD, UCC, NUI Galway, Trinity and RCSI.

The HPAT (Health Professions Admissions Test) exam took place last February. HPAT scores (out of a total of 300) will be added to qualified applicants' Leaving Certificate scores.

Although candidates may not appeal their HPAT results, they may apply for a re-check, if they believe an error may have been made in scoring their exam. Requests for re-checks must be submitted online by 5.00 pm on May 6, at the cost of €80. The re-check fee will be refunded if a scoring error is found.
