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.

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.
