In her early career, Toni worked as an office administrator before leaving London 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 has undertaken multiple training courses and has acquired administrative, financial and managerial skills whilst with HR Solutions.
In her role as Payroll Manager for over 7 years, Toni’s supervision has seen the HR Solutions payroll service grow from one client at inception to now processing over sixty different payroll accounts every month. In 2019 Toni, took on the additional new role of our Office Manager and continues to use her numeracy and communication skills when liaising with our team, suppliers and clients.
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.
