I am part-way through my CIPD Level 5 to which I finish in June. My background is Secretarial/PA in the Higher Education Sector to which now I work flexi-time in our own Micro-SME as a Company Secretary. I have been wanting to get into a direct HR role and have got my first interview as HR Officer at a Secondary School to which I am really pleased since it links with my background of being in the educational sector, a school governor to a primary school and with my CIPD Level 5.
I also have other qualifications which lead up to a MBA to which I have chose to study two electives in HRM. I have volunteered in a HR and Payroll setting but it was mainly the Payroll side due to the audit that was occurring at the time.
I regulary network and have just attend the CIPD Student Midlands 2019 Conference in Birmingham to gain more advice and network with people in the field.
My question is based around the job. Can anyone offer some advise around the job interview. I am a confidence person, I am changing career direction to HR. I have a good background on administration, payroll, aware of policies and procedures but need further advise about the HR elements to do the this profession.
I would very much appreciate any comments and advice that you can all give me.
Thank you for your time.
