In August 2020 Crispin Rhodes entered into a new partnership with HR Solutions; which saw Rhonda, and founder Angela Rhodes and their clients join HR Solutions.
Rhonda and Angela continue to be familiar contacts for their Crispin Rhodes clients, who now have the option of additional services and the support of the HR Solutions consultants and advisors.
Rhonda has since been promoted from HR Advisor to HR Consultant in December 2020. She completed her Associate CIPD course at Kingston College whilst working full time for British Airways many years ago; her dedication required studying until the early hours to complete her modules.
Describing herself as an HR generalist with operational experience, Rhonda has extensive experience of working in highly unionised environments such as British Airways, Gate Gourmet and SSE. Rhonda’s experience includes training and development, recruitment, industrial relations, employee relations and knowledge of information systems. She also has experience with Global Mobility and deciphering what policies and procedures would apply to overseas managers who were on long term UK assignments. Rhonda would check their contracts to see if they had to adhere to their home country’s policies and procedures or the host rules, which would be the UK rules.
At the start of her career, Rhonda applied for a job as an HR Assistant working for a hotel group called Forte based in Brentford in the mid 1990’s; and is still friends with the lady that recruited her. Over the years, Rhonda then honed her HR skills whilst working for British Airways, General Electric, Gate Gourment, Sough Heat and Power, Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), Uniliver and Weatherbys.
Rhonda enjoys travelling; whilst working for British Airways, she had the opportunity to work in Connecticut, USA which was fun. In her spare time she enjoys weekend breaks away from Northamptonshire to explore the UK.
