Seeking an HRD role?
Securing an HR director job is tough. If you apply for an HRD role, you’ll be faced with strong competition from both inside and outside the organisation.
There are some common factors that employers look for when hiring. Ideally, you’ll be someone who is currently a senior HR business partner or a head of HR, or someone who is already an HR director looking for a change in employer.
Specific sector experience is generally considered important at this level, particularly in financial and professional services. But there is likely to be crossover between closely aligned sectors within commerce (e.g. retail & FMCG, media & advertising, and telecommunications & technology).
