I feel proud to work for an organisation where I have been part of many changes and lots of growth but feel even prouder that we have not lost sight of our ‘family feel’.

My first role at Midwich was the Switchboard Operator in 1997.  After four years, I moved into the Human Resources department and became an HR Administrator and have since worked my way through the department to my current role of HR Manager for the UK & Ireland.

I offer varying levels of advice and support to the group on a range of queries, including recruitment and selection, training and development, coaching, employee relations, statistical reporting and policy and procedure design and rollout. 

In 2018 I became a Mental Health First Aider, which has taught me to identify and tackle mental health issues in the workplace and also supports the business in improving our staff wellbeing.
