HR Business Partner Job Description & Template

human resources business partner job description template, HRBP

Developing job descriptions can be one of the most difficult if not tedious parts of an HR Recruiter’s job. While job posts are essentially talent brand marketing, job descriptions are meant for use on your career site and for links in job posts to give a job seeker more detailed information. Job descriptions must contain all the important information about the role and should be optimized with keywords that will drive traffic to the listing on your career site. We’ve put together a basic set of guidelines on how to write an effective job description posting and template. In this job description template, we’re sharing an example of what a HR Business Partner or HRBP job description might look like. 

HR Business Partner Job Description & Template

You’re welcome to use this Human Resource Business Partner job description template how you see fit. The HRBP role is seen less of a generalist or manager and someone who takes a more consultative role working in HR. Human Resource Business Partners have clients within the organization. They provide resources and build relationships focusing on the missions and objectives set forth by the organization. There is much less focus on compliance and administration. An organization instead typically has an HR Services Center or central department to help provide support in the form of policy development and enforcement, benefits, and compensation. This person is seen as an operational and more strategic resource for the region or area in which they support. This is an exempt level position. An HRBP’s compensation range in the U.S. averages $76,000. Those in the 90th percentile make $104,000 per year and those in the 10th percentile have an income of $55,000.
