An advantage of a gaining a qualification for a career in HRM is that most types of organisations (public, private, social enterprise organisations) need HR skills. In larger organisations such as multinationals, the HR career can include specialist roles in e.g. Talent Management, Resourcing, Organisation Development, Employee Engagement, Pay and Rewards as well as generalist positions such as HR Business Partner, a role which is also often found in Small & Medium Sized Enterprises. As a profession, it provides a career path, with HR positions from junior levels all the way through to strategic and board level roles.
The full-time programme will be beneficial for those wishing to enter a career within the area of HRM or looking to complete the programme in a shorter space of time. The part-time programme will be beneficial for both general managers and those working within HRM.
Graduates from this course have HRM and management roles within the NHS, Scottish Prison Service, Transport Police and SMEs.
