What made you decide to pursue a career in HR?

From a young age I always wanted a career in helping and supporting people, however I sort of fell into HR. I started out my working life in retail management and the part of the job I enjoyed the most (apart from the discount) was helping employees develop, succeed and making their working lives that bit more fulfilling and enjoyable. I also have a strong interest in business management, including the factors that make businesses succeed and a place people want to work. Given my interest in business and supporting people, HR was a good fit.

Describe your typical working day?

I like the fact that no day is ever the same within my role and with the variety of work that comes in each day, it keeps you on your toes. We work across a number of areas including recruitment, training, employee wellbeing, performance, and employee relations etc.

A lot of work also goes into our different initiatives, projects, continuous improvement plans and strategies such as health & wellbeing, so a percentage of my working days are spent collating data, researching and seeing what will work well for both the business and employees.

What is the best thing about your job?

This is easy – helping people! Whether this is helping employees develop, or helping an employee get back into the workplace, I love the opportunity of making employees lives better.
