Human Resources Work Experience

Employment Placement Program


Human Resources Courses for Beginners

A New Way to Get Mentored and Kick-Start Your Career.

At Direct Placements we want to assist candidates who are entering the human resources (HR) sector for the first time, students, and those switching to a new profession. In order to deliver on these goals, we have created a sophisticated solution we refer to as Employment Placement Program (EPP). Candidates can tap into this program to receive structured mentoring from an experienced HR professional. Through this, they can understand and adapt to the demands of the UK job market, get mentored by an experienced HR professional, and gain relevant

HR work experience

that will serve as their competitive edge once they start applying for work.

Practical Mentorship & Experience

Our human resources mentorship and

human resources work experience

program assists you in gaining practical abilities and work experience in the field of human resources. This will play a huge role in bridging your classroom learning with real HR work. As a result, you can fully understand what the field and profession is really like, allowing you to grow your qualifications, increase your chances for employment, and easily adapt to the specific expectations in the UK employment market.

There are three experience levels for our HR mentorship and

human resources course for beginners

: Fundamental, Intermediate, and Advanced. The Fundamental Level explores basic HR concepts and practices and is all about familiarisation of the professional common functions. The Intermediate Level picks up where the fundamental level left off, providing detailed information on HR ethical principles, employment law, and labour relations, and more. Lastly, if you are keen to become proficient in more complex HR topics, the Advanced Level is for you. It is designed to fully prepare you to take on the more challenging functions of HR, including performance management, training and development, and job analysis and design, among others

Depending on your background in HR as well as your learning needs, you can pick one or two levels to complete or even undertake all three levels to make yourself more qualified for a human resources role.

We have structured our HR mentorship and

HR work experience

program in a manner that nurtures potentials. As such, candidates who undertake the program will gain invaluable insights about human resources that are beyond what they have learned in the classroom, and will also make them well versed in varied HR concepts and practices. All these will cultivate their confidence and make them more qualified to take on a human resources role for any company.
