I have been toying with the idea of moving into HR for a couple of years now. I have a degree in Management Studies (including HR modules). Following graduation I worked in global mobility/relocation consultancy for 4 years before moving into Customer Success Management at early tech start-ups for the last 2 years.
In an ideal world, I would like to study for my CIPD whilst continuing with my role as Head of Customer Success but approach my CEO and suggest that I implement HR policies etc as I learn more about them (there is currently no HR department). I would then like to use the experience at my current company to then transition into full-time HR assistant role as I've noted from both this forum and job adverts that employers are always looking for some degree of HR related experience before even considering your application.
Sorry if this question has been asked before- I searched the forum beforehand and couldn't find anything that matched my situation. Also please let me know if you think I'm being naive in thinking that I would be able to implement some key HR processes/policies with only theoretical knowledge from my studies.
Thanks so much!
