This apprenticeship is ideal for HR professionals whose duties may include making decisions and recommendations on initiatives, influencing managers on introducing good practice, leading people on projects, and aligning their work to overall organisational priorities.
2 years

HR professionals will use their HR expertise to provide and lead the delivery of HR solutions to business challenges, together with tailored advice to the business in a number of HR areas, typically to mid-level and senior managers.

They could be in a generalist role, where they provide support across a range of HR areas, or a specialist role, where they focus on and have in-depth expertise in a specific area of HR – likely to be Resourcing, Total Reward, Organisation Development, or HR Operations. Whichever of these is chosen, they will have a good grounding across the whole range of HR disciplines as this is contained in both of the qualification options included in this standard. They will often be required to make decisions and recommendations on what the business can/should do in a specific situation. They will be influencing managers to change their thinking as well as bringing best practices into the organisation. Whatever their role, they will need to link the work they do to the context and priorities of the business.
