Born in Zimbabwe and raised in South Africa, Toni moved to London at the age of 19.

After a brief spell as a nanny she worked as an office administrator, before leaving the capital and moving to Leica Microsystems in Milton Keynes. There her role varied between reception duties and sales order processing, and she found that she had a natural affinity for working with numbers.

Toni joined HR Solutions in 2011 as Office Manager, later becoming Business Support Manager, and then Payroll Manager when the opportunity arose in September 2013. She’s undertaken multiple training courses in the role and has found it a natural fit. Under her supervision the payroll service has grown from helping just one client at inception, to now processing more than fifty different payroll accounts every month.

Toni’s Q&A’s

What’s your greatest personal achievement?

It’s difficult to say. If it’s just about myself, then I’d say it was making the move here from South Africa. But then I’ve got three kids who I’m extremely proud of, which is also a huge achievement. I’d say both.

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

We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.

What’s your favourite album?

Kings of Leon, Sign of the Times.

What do you wish other people knew about HR Solutions?

That we don’t just provide solutions for employment issues, we can also help with payroll and the day to day running of your HR services.
