In smaller organisations, Human Resources Advisers are responsible for all kinds of employment matters. In larger organisations, they may be dedicated to specific teams and departments, or provide specialty advice relating to matters they have expertise in, such as recruitment, training, conflict resolution or industrial relations.

The role calls for a high level of emotional intelligence, tact and an ability to discuss difficult issues. Human Resources Advisers are expected to act with complete discretion, except in circumstances where they have a duty to disclose to senior management or authorities.
