HR Director Job Description Template/Brief

We are currently looking for an HR Director to head our Human Resources division and develop and implement human resources policies and best practices that align with the company's strategic goals.

HR Director Job Profile

A human resources director is the department's most senior HR professional, responsible for making executive HR decisions on policies, procedures, and strategies. They are a level higher in the organization's structure than HR managers. On the other hand, smaller companies do not distinguish between the two positions and assign them equally.

The human resources department is an essential component of every firm, ensuring seamless operations, the availability of competent human capital, and strong interpersonal ties. This department comprises several HR specialists, including the HR manager, HRBP, HR generalist, and HR analyst. However, this personnel does the job; it is supervised, directed, and evaluated by the human resources director.
