Human Resources Professional, Warner Bros
I work in Human Resources (HR) as an Executive Director for an Entertainment Company and have a broad remit that covers Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). In a nutshell, my role involves researching, analysing and making recommendations on pay and employee benefits data across EMEA. Much of the work is project based and no one day is ever the same.
My background is in Accounting/Tax, which is where my working life began before I re-trained and made the career change to HR. I am also a qualified Executive Coach and for the past few years, alongside my main job, I have been an internal coach at my Company. I have a real passion for seeing others reach their full potential and achieve their goal(s). To quote Maya Angelo, I ‘try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud’.
Throughout, my career I’ve always had people who have championed my corner and encouraged me along the way even when I have been less than convinced myself. Were it not for the support and faith of others in me, I would not have made some of the career choices that I did!
Outside of work, I love art – painting & drawing (I still have aspirations of being an artist!). I also love music and I am a prolific reader. I have two ‘young adult’ children. My daughter is a Scientist and my son is at Art College studying Photography.
