11 HR job types


Up to 20 years ago, the main responsibilities of the HR department were HR administration; Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS); Payroll and Compliance. So pinning down who to direct your products, services, survey, questions or other enquiries to was pretty straight forward and we didn’t have the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) or its equivalent in other geographies (CCPA/LGPD/ POPI) to consider either. How times have changed.

With new technology automating and streamlining many HR functions and Covid having had an irreversible impact on the ways and places we work, the focus of HR has moved ever outwards.

That's why HeadsOf.com now covers these 11 job types. And generally, the larger and more complicated an organisation is, the greater the variety and number of people with these titles will be present.


What our clients are saying

Purchasing data is always a minefield – we have used several providers in the past and have struggled to find the quality and accuracy we need.
The team behind AlertBI’s HeadsOf.com service are helpful and responsive – they always deliver to our brief and the data they provide is of a very high quality - we always experience a very low bounce rate.
They are now a trusted and preferred partner.
Zoe Bull
Marketing & Communications Director,
Working Transitions| Career Partners International
We began using Alert BI's HeadsOf.com division as a source of key contacts data during 2021. From the start, communications have been quick, professional, and easy. Data quality is high and great value for money. Their information covers the USA market brilliantly (we are based in California) and also Europe where we have expansion plans. Highly recommended.

SR Apprenticeships have had a great experience working with HeadsOfHR.com. Unlike most other providers, all their contacts data is freshly researched and validated just before it’s sent to clients, so it’s not been sitting on the shelf going stale. Their list of ‘heads of’ roles is extremely comprehensive so we were able to target just the right people, and supplementary advice on marketing campaigns and GDPR is readily available.
Nick Colquitt,
Commercial Director, SR Apprenticeships
We use Alert most days and are finding lots of fresh information. The Alert team are always on the ball and customer service and support is great too
Nick Kingston,
Senior Claims Manager, Barclays Plc
“We have experienced a 20-fold return on our investment in Alert’s services and are reaping other ongoing benefits, including enhanced credibility with customers and improved productivity.”
Tom Hawkins,
Director, Hays Plc
“Alert saves us valuable time identifying target organisations and complements our sales strategy perfectly.”
Robert Euston,
Head of International Sales, NCC Group Plc
We needed to reach out to senior HR personnel as well as people in job roles to do with learning, emotional health and wellbeing.
HeadsOfHR.com seemed to be the only company that could provide contacts data that specific, and in the quantity we required.
Their business advisers are knowledgeable and not pushy salespeople.
We bought the data, found the quality was high and the service and communications were great. Highly recommended.
Fiona Hills
Managing Director, Virtual Coffee House
“I whole heartedly recommend Alert Business Intelligence for the best B2B data you can get anywhere – bang up-to-date, accurate, incredibly detailed, precision targeted and very easy to use. Alert’s data and customer service were a revelation.”
Rhys Davies
Business Development Manager, Algebra Business Solutions Ltd
“We discovered HeadsOf.com via a Google internet search when looking for a HR contacts database. As well as general HR contacts they cover more specialist roles such the HSQE staff we had an interest in. The service and communications were quick and professional and the sample data was good - we purchased a dataset and have been busy communicating with that audience. The information is good. We also valued the advice the HeadsOf.com team provided about producing email content to maximise its impact, and the guidance about how best to set up and execute campaigns over the critical first three months of campaigning. Highly recommended..”
