I lead the HR team, based in Heslington Hall, with responsibility for HR Operations, HR Services, strategic HR projects, recruitment, pay, reward and recognition, pensions, employment policies, employee relations, learning and development, and occupational health.
I joined the University in September 2017. Prior to that I was Deputy Chief Officer HR for Leeds City Council, and Head of HR for Education Leeds. Prior to joining the public sector, I undertook a range of consultancy and senior HR management roles, primarily in the Finance and IT sectors.
Before moving into HR management, I did a PhD at the University of Cambridge, and also had a publication from my undergraduate dissertation. I am also an alumnus from York – I was in Alcuin college (there were only 6 colleges in my day) and an undergraduate in the Psychology department
I live in Leeds, with my two teenage children.
