This full-time and part-time programme is aimed at graduates who are looking to advance their careers by achieving a business qualification with a strong focus on people management including HRM, talent acquisition, leading & developing people, employee relations and labour law, or those currently in employment in a wide variety of sectors but with a need to cross-skill or refocus in these areas.
Most HR Professionals are expected to operate as "Business Partners" which reflects the thinking above and was rated as the number one job with the most transferrable skill set (CIPD Ireland 2016).
This programme would be of benefit to anyone interested in a career in HR operations, Employee relations, Talent identification and management, and related areas.
Given the strong growth in many sectors of the Irish economy, this calls for HR professionals with human resources, recruitment and training skills to fulfil these staffing needs. Recruitment consultants and organisations need HR graduates with a deep appreciation of these growth sectors and what employers require from potential applicants. In today's competitive marketplace, organisations work hard to ensure that their human resources are fulfilled in their roles and skilled HR professionals have a significant role to play in this regard. Organisations are also evolving at a significant pace and HR professionals have a core role to play in managing change in organisations, either internally or using specialist HR consultancies to assist them in the change process.
