Consultant

Consultant

The HR professional plays several roles in the business. Different roles may be more or less important depending on the HR and business agenda. It is rare for the HR professional to spend extended periods in one role. Rather they are likely to engage in a particular role to achieve a key objective, therefore flexibility is key. Their overall focus is on achieving the business strategy and goals. They will use their local HR plan and agenda to further this together with any corporate wide strategy initiatives, tailored to their business.

In this role you may act as an internal consultant – diagnosing and analysing the key factors relating to an issue, through asking powerful questions and challenging colleagues in the business.  Doing this well can be highly effective in helping an area of the business move forwards with a particular goal, and see an issue from a new perspective.
