I am a passionate, forward-thinking, practical HR professional working in a lead Europe HR role in a world-leading technology company in Cambridge. I am a conscientious, enthusiastic and hardworking individual demonstrated by my rapid progression to a strategic Human Resources leadership position. In my current role I am responsible for innovating, championing and delivering the global HR strategy across the business, including management of the HR team. One of my key strengths is my ability to build relationships and to deliver a commercially aligned solution by understanding the complexities of a technology business.
I have vast experience in organisational change, having most recently taken the lead in implementing a large scale re-structure which resulted in a reduction in force across Europe. I also have a wide range of experience in M&A activity, from the initial due diligence stages, to ensuring the ongoing success of the business in the aftermath of a large change program.
My key strengths are my common-sense approach to HR, coupled with my strong communication skills and natural coaching style. I am extremely dedicated and focused and I thrive on being stretched within my role.
