HR Director Cover Letter Example
« on: February 14, 2014, 10:34:40 AM »

Writing a cover letter for the job role of HR Director.
If you are looking to be a HR Director then you need to have a great deal of experience in a HR role. Typically the route into HR is through the channels starting at HR Assistant and working through to Adviser role then Manager and up to Director. 
You can study HR qualifications through University but the majority of people tend to study for the HR qualification CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development) whilst they are working in a HR role.

To be a HR Director you will be expected to have at least 5 + years experience in various HR roles and ideally in a generalist role so that you have a generalist background to be able to manage all areas and teams with the HR department you are responsible for.

A HR Director is a very senior and important role within usually a large business and salaries are typically from £50,000 per annum upwards depending on the size of the business structure and role.

As a HR Director you would be responsible for:
  • Overall responsibility of the HR Department – managing the key team of HR Managers, Advisers, Assistants etc.
  • Developing and introducing new policies and procedures into the business
  • Advising and coaching Managers on new procedures and how to deal with their staff
  • Monitoring each department and dealing with any problems that come to light
  • Look at the priorities in HR and devise and implement any changes
  • Controls performance management tools and looks at development of staff and staff retention
  • Monitors KPI’s set for the HR department and other teams
This is a very senior role and one with a lot of responsibility. Over the years of working through HR and relevant qualifications you will have built up the right amount of experience to do this role well. It is not usual to go into a HR Director role without having a solid background in HR.
