Sheena’s Q&A’s

What’s your greatest personal achievement?

There was a point when I was six months into studying for my MA in HR Management, whilst looking after my two young children and working nearly full-time, that my manager asked me to take on a year-long management development course. I advised my manager that I may have reached my limit in terms of what I could commit to, however I was asked to start it and see anyway!

Putting myself through all of that was hardest thing I have done, but I am quite a determined person and I managed to do it. It was actually quite an adjustment period after finally finishing everything, I wanted to find the next project. I had to teach myself how to relax again!

What's your favourite film?

The Moneypit, which might be an odd choice but it’s because every time I watch it I feel better about my own house! I was seven months pregnant with our first child when we moved into our ‘project home’ so understandably it has taken longer than we thought to get around to working on it (about 10 years longer)!

Every so often something happens and it takes me straight back to that film. Plus Tom Hanks stars in it, and he is a brilliant actor.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given?

You’ve just got to be yourself. Don’t try to be like anyone else, use your experiences to be the best version of yourself you can be. Everyone has something to bring to the table.

What do you wish other people knew about HR Solutions?

There is so much experience and knowledge in this business, I feel very comfortable here and that reflects how I’ve been treated. There are a lot of highly skilled people here who know their stuff!
