Its not as if you need special skills, its looks mainly admin stuff!!

Anyone ever changed from their current career to an HR one and how did you find it?

I did many years ago in my last Hotel, i hated it. the amount of paper work, the hours you spend training staff from EVERY department, the abuse you get off some staff,
I did all my own training when i worked in my Restaurants so i was used to training staff but it was so hard when you had to train staff from other departments i'd never even been in ( maintenance)
you also have to maintain the H&S for the entire hotel , be responsible for the fire training and evacuations, the list goes on and on and on, this is why some are paid a high wage hun its not all admin

you also need to know about unions and all the procedures the company has, it is quite complicated, I'm doing a degree on it :) It needs quite a lot of responsibility to ensure employees are looked after and not unfairly treated.

A lot of jobs need a fair amount of knowledge about a lot of things...

Its not just an admin role!!!!, you need a qualification in CIPD if you want to work in HR in the higher roles, a degree and a vast understanding of employment law, unions, pay, tax, benefits etc.

I work in the media not HR just saying!
