HR & Recruitment
HR and recruitment specialists are positioned behind the scenes, forming a part of the backbone of the financial sector. You’ll be helping not only to keep things running smoothly, but also ensuring legal regulations are adhered to, making sure employees are treated fairly, and helping managers find the right individuals for any internal vacancies.
There are two very distinct types of job available within recruitment, which can be broken down into more bite sized roles. The first type of role is within financial institutions. These roles don’t require as heavy a knowledge regarding the ins and outs of various finance roles (although you will, undoubtedly, learn on the job anyway), but they do require a good knowledge of how the company operates on the whole. Arranging interviews, welcoming applicants to the premises, checking references, and drawing up contracts are just some of the duties of an internal HR employee.
The second type of role is located within external recruitment agencies, which work on behalf of the financial institution. These roles will require a more thorough understanding of each individual role – including common terminology – in order to communicate efficiently and effectively with the recruiting company. Both internal and external roles appear here on efinancialcareers.com.
The HR aspect is much more varied. The term ‘human resources’ can cover anything employee-related, including tracking holidays and absences, ensuring personnel records are kept up to date, taking minutes in confidential meetings, and even acting as a witness during a grievance procedure. HR also covers issues of discrimination, along with any paperwork relating to employees resigning or having their contract ended. HR officers are responsible for providing references, if appropriate, for past employees. You’ll need a confidential nature to work in HR and recruitment, as you’ll be privy to a great deal of sensitive information.
