HR Strategy and Talent Manager
About a career at QR! Specifically, Career Progression, Performance Management, Personal Development, Reward & Recognition and general Policies and Procedures.
I am passionate about…
My biggest passion in terms of the company is making sure everyone is happy and motivated. Thankfully I get to really impact this in my role, and I love supporting people in their personal development and watching them grow.
I have been working within Human Resources for over ten years, initially within the Professional Services industry, Before I then made a move over to the Business Consultancy Services in order to move to London. My following move to QR is the best career move that I have ever made; it has opened up so many learning opportunities for me all at the same time as being able to enjoy time with my three year old boy.
My QR story
After making the decision that ‘London Life’ wasn’t as much fun when you were rushing home to a newborn, I decided I wanted the chance to work closer to home. I was lucky enough to be chosen to represent the HR department for QR_ in March 2014. Since joining I have seen – and supported – the growth of QR from 35 heads to almost 100. It isn’t often that you can step into a new company/new role and really make a difference, but with the innovative ideas within the company, the openness and honesty of senior management and enthusiasm of the wider team it has been possible to develop some really great initiatives in what is relatively a short space of time. The Performance, Progression, Development and Remuneration cycle is ever evolving to ensure it is supportive and valuable. Development tracks are gradually being developed to provide relevant professional development at each level and support progression through each level, as well as ensuring all managers have everything they need to support their teams and be awesome managers. QR really value their employees and reflect this through everything they do and I am proud to be a part of the team.
When I am not working for QR I…….
My main focus outside of work is spending time with my three year old son. He loves being outdoors running in fields, having picnics and really enjoys a visit to the farm. Aside from family/friends and socialising I have recently taken part in my first 5k obstacle run in June 2016 and have two more lined up – wish me luck!
