This role is crucial to ensure the success of the department’s activities. HR Assistant tasks include handling incoming job applications,  scheduling interviews, and assisting current employees. 

Human Resources Manager 

HR managers supervise the entire HR department and work closely with all other departments. Their main duties are assigning tasks, implementing policies relating to the effective use of staff in an organization, and taking responsibility for every aspect of staffing, benefits, retention, and motivation.

Careers Advisor 

Careers advisors help people realize their ambitions, working with a range of clients from high school students to adults undergoing a career change. Careers advisors need an in-depth understanding of the current job market, and must keep up to date with labor legislation and academic developments.

Risk Manager 

Risk managers are in charge of advising businesses on any potential risks to the company’s profitability or existence. They identify and evaluate threats, create backup strategies, and decide how to avoid or reduce possible risks. The specific tasks that each risk manager carries out will depend on the industry. 

Recruitment Consultant 

Recruitment consultants match candidates to positions with client companies. As with the entire field of HR, this job requires excellent people skills in order to gain a better understanding of your clients’ needs and preferences. Recruitment consultants are active networkers who can build and nurture the relationship between a candidate and a company, acting for the benefit of both parties.
