The Director of Human Resources (HR) is a key member of the Airport Executive team and will be responsible for developing the strategy for Human Resources and implementing the strategy in accordance with the Airport’s Business plan.

The Director of HR has responsibility for HR policy, practice and culture at both Cardiff Airport and St Athan airfield.  All further references to the Airport relate to the combined Cardiff Airport and St Athan team.
