Different areas of Yorkshire are home to different industries, with financial services, industrial manufacturing, tourism, engineering and retail all key to various parts of the region. Employers include a number of large organisations such as Tetley's Brewery, Bradford and Bingley and Morrisons, with such large organisations often employing a huge number of people in their HR teams. However, there are also significant opportunities for those looking for an HR role within a smaller company, and those looking to make their first foray into the industry.
Competition for positions within the HR industry can be fierce and, as a result, a number of organisations will require a candidate to have formal qualifications. There are roles available, however, for those seeking an entry level position - and it can sometimes also be easier to get a foot in the door if you have experience within the recruitment industry.
Entry level HR roles in Yorkshire tend to start at between £15,000 and £20,000 per year, with some more senior positions paying upwards of £50,000 for the right candidate.
