Spotlight on an ... HR Advisor

HR is at the heart of the Clarks business. We couldn’t do what we do without them – they’re crucial to our bold growth plans. Because without the right people with the right skills in the right jobs, our vision would remain just that, a vision. Our HR Advisors are people people. They’re on hand to provide expert advice and guidance to managers across our stores, distribution centres and business support functions, helping them to manage and get the best out of their people.

So, what sort of work will you be involved in? Let’s take a look at the role of HR Advisor to our UK stores. The first thing to say is that it’s a big remit, a varied one too, from making sure that we’re recruiting the best people for our jobs to enhancing the way on-the-ground managers apply HR policy.

You’ll also be involved in managing absence, overseeing projects from an HR perspective and delivering employee relations training events. You’ll spend time with the Regional and Area Managers so that you can fully under their HR needs and what we can do to meet them. And without wanting to bang the drum too much, HR is recognised as being a crucial part of the wider business, today and in the future.
