What’s your greatest Personal Achievement?
Achieving my qualifications. I hadn’t studied since GCSE’s 20 years previous and with two children, one on the way and working full time, I really embraced the opportunity and it made passing my exams more enjoyable.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
My mum always says to me “Always reach for the moon, if you fail to reach it you will end up lying on a bed of stars. Nothing is unachievable if you work hard.” Something that I tell my children regularly.
What is your favourite song?
“Somewhere over the rainbow,” by Eve Cassidy has been my favourite song since I was little. I used to sing this with my Nan so it brings back some lovely memories.
What do you wish other people knew about HR Solutions?
That they are a small, welcoming and friendly team that really care about providing the best service. They have the knowledge and experience to be able to deliver this service professionally and confidentially. Individuals bring their own strengths and experiences which they share with colleagues, making them a diverse team with a wealth of knowledge.
