Human Resources Jobs Abroad

With an increasing need to attract the best and brightest employees in an increasingly competitive market, organizations realize the importance of having an experienced human resources (HR) department. While the world has become more interconnected and traveling abroad for a job has become the norm, the HR team plays a key role in the development of a business, and its employees. Obtaining an HR job abroad will allow you to obtain a wealth of global knowledge. If you have a passion for working with people, than an HR job abroad may be the perfect stepping stone to a successful career in human resources.

Why Work Abroad

In balancing the needs and objectives of the company and employees, you’re able to hone your cross-cultural communication skills and understand how to develop best practices for an international organization in a human resources department. With an all-inclusive perspective, you can see the bigger picture and harmonize growth of a company and its various teams.

Diffusing working conflicts between colleagues or teams, delivering important benefits information, and organizing trainings are all key aspects of an HR employee; experience in delivering this type of work in another country is invaluable in our increasingly interconnected world (and makes you a more competitive job candidate). While working with people of diverse backgrounds, you become the face of the company when hard questions needs effective answers. Conveying honesty and your genuine concern for the overall well-being of the people, you’ll learn to adapt to intercultural environments and discover your own forte as a human resources team member.

Locations

Whatever location you choose for your HR job abroad, it is important to select a country that aligns with your own personal interest and goals. One of the most important things to keep in mind: the ability to communicate in the country’s language is important in order to gain pragmatic knowledge.

If it’s your first time working abroad, consider starting out in Thailand, which offers a great multicultural environment filled with people who speak both English and Thai. It is even possible (to really get your feet wet) to work as a seasonal HR team member in Thailand, which means you will be able to develop your skills and understand how human resources departments work in Thailand before diving in to a full time position.

Japan is known as a country with extremely hard workers. Many employees do not take their permitted holidays and often work overtime unpaid. If you’re interested in how HR strategies are created and deeply rooted in a nation’s business system, then a working holiday in Japan may be a compelling option for your human resources job abroad.

China is booming country with thousands of international employees. If you have Chinese language skills, working in human resources in China can be both an exciting and challenging opportunity for you. While some perspectives consider Chinese HR policies wary and almost nonexistent, you will be able to gain a true understanding and background of China’s HR system by working directly with local companies.

If you’re seeking a more Western-focused job abroad, check out HR jobs in England.  Without having to focus on learning a new language (at least native English speakers won’t have to), you’ll be able to concentrate on gaining hands-on work experience and be able to take a progressive approach to working directly with employees.

Human Resources Jobs Abroad

If you’re just starting out, a job as a human resources coordinator is an excellent way to start in the industry. You’ll handle personal paperwork, answer all HR related inquiries, and provide onboarding support to new hires. Additionally, working in this type of HR job abroad in a smaller corporation may allow you to take on more responsibilities and client-facing roles, while working at larger corporations would allow you to network and handle HR duties on a larger scale.

Another entry-level option for HR jobs abroad is a position as a recruiting coordinator. You’ll be in charge of posting open positions on job boards, scanning potential candidates, and arranging interviews. Seeking the best employees for your company means you will be able to highlight the company’s achievements and demonstrate how internal growth can be achieved. Recruiting agencies that need multilingual speakers is a great place to look for HR jobs abroad in this realm, if you happen to know more than one language.

If you’ve been in the industry for a few years and are fully aware of a specific country’s HR policies, consider working abroad in an HR management role. You must be able to communicate fluently and understand the practices and overall business needs of the company to do so, however. International technology corporations would be an ideal place to start, since their employees tend to be comprised of people from all over the world.

Having solid international HR job experience can eventually lead to a career in global mobility. Major corporations utilize this department to help guide international employees and facilitate their intricate paperwork. You’ll become knowledgeable about various types of visas, relocation planning, and come to understand global taxation through HR jobs abroad of this kind.

Overall, HR jobs abroad will be significantly influenced by each country’s culture. In Asian societies, it’s very possible that you’ll end up working over 40 hours each week and respect for elders and personal humility will be crucial to your success. But, in more Western nations, you’ll average around 40 hours per week and find that a work-life balance is often taken into consideration; therefore, employees will be more regularly encouraged to take their paid time off (PTO) in order to avoid employee burnout.

Benefits

  • Foster Unshakeable Communication Skills. The ability to communicate effectively is a huge component of working in human resources. With such a highly visible role in any company or organization, speaking fluently and understanding cultural nuances is key.

  • Impressive to Employers. Choosing to obtain an HR job abroad shows future employers that you’ve worked in an intercultural environment and can genuinely take care of employees with an open mind. The new HR strategies and decisions you’ll add to your toolbox will be from an extensive global skill set that will give you a competitive advantage in the HR job market.
