Human Resources Management Project

Project Summary & Objectives

Development of a Human Resources function in MoI (2014-2016)

Droman Director David McCracken led a €1m funded project in Belgrade over two years to design and implement a modern human resources management (HRM) function in the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Serbia.

As the UK’s residential twinning advisor (RTA) David coordinated a team of international consultants ensuring that they completed sub-components of the strategic project, on-time and to specification.

The Project delivered all objectives including the drafting and enactment of necessary legislation, the completion of over 46,000 new contracts for personnel, and the creation of an international standard human resources function.

David led the design of the new HR function within the Ministry that fulfilled both international and legacy HR responsibilities. He ensured that there was a successful transfer to the new structure both from ‘Day One’ (21/12/15) as well as identifying an action plan for the next three years so that the function can develop as the Ministry develops its capability.
