"What I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to get involved in projects that make a positive difference to the company, whether that be creating a framework for measuring happiness at work or designing a line manager training programme."

My role at Foolproof is to ensure that the HR team provide an efficient and effective HR service to the business across the entire employee life-cycle. This includes recruitment, onboarding, career development, rewards and recognition, employee engagement and wellbeing, and offboarding. I am also responsible for ensuring that our HR policies and processes are not only legally compliant but reflect and reinforce Foolproof’s cultural values. What I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to get involved in projects that make a positive difference to the company, whether that be creating a framework for measuring happiness at work or designing a line manager training programme.

I have a broad generalist HR skillset with particular expertise and interest around employee relations, TUPE transfers, change management, learning and development, talent management, employee engagement and coaching. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Management Studies from Brunel University and an MSc in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).

In my spare time I enjoy travelling (experiencing different cultures and food), watching movies on Netflix and spending quality time with my 5 year old daughter.
