Human Resources

A human resources department looks after the workplace needs of a company’s staff. This means a wide range of potential duties, including looking after pay and benefits, dealing with hiring new staff and introducing them to the company, dealing with arguments and making sure staff are happy in the workplace.

Some who work in the sector will specialise in a specific role, whereas others will be generalists dealing with all issues, especially in smaller companies. You will do well in the area if you are good with people and have excellent attention to detail.
