Prior to joining HR Solutions, Louise’s past two roles were also in a HR capacity at The Curve Group and Breezemount Ltd. She has always had a passion for helping people; when she finished university she was unsure about what she wanted to do, but while job searching a HR administrator role came up which instantly caught her eye; and the rest is history. Louise aspires to continue to progress in her HR career; with a passion and willingness to offer support on new opportunities to expand her knowledge.
Louise enjoys travelling within the UK and abroad; including Brighton, Norfolk, Aberdeen, Australia, Vietnam, Barcelona, Croatia and Norway. She loves running race distances from 5km up to marathons and even 100-mile events. Her dream is to run a sub 3 hour marathon.
What is your greatest personal achievement?
My greatest personal achievement is completing the Frankfurt marathon in 3 hours and 2 minutes; me being me though, I aim to beat that this year!
What is your favourite quote?
You’ll miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
What is your favourite race distance and why?
Marathon – its long enough to not feel out of control from the first mile, but also long enough that there is always a question mark over whether you’ll get to the finish line. I love the feeling of knowing it’s going to get tough but knowing that you are strong enough to push through it, because the feeling when you cross the finish line is so worth it!
What do you wish other people knew about HR Solutions?
It is a great business with a real community feel and a team which prides itself in the advice and support they provide to their SME clients.
