I joined Smith Partnership as a Junior HR Administrator in 2003, completed the Level 3 CIPD Certificate in Personnel Practice and have progressed to my current role as HR Officer. I work alongside the HR Manager to look after the HR needs of over 200 staff at Smith Partnership.
My role involves recruitment, contracts of employment, inductions for new starters, recording sickness, annual leave and absence management. I organise maternity leave, assist in payroll, action childcare vouchers, process leavers, arrange training courses, temporary workers and locums, probation review meeting documentation and client satisfaction questionnaires. In addition, I organise and take minutes for the firm's internal ICG meetings, as well as looking after our Smith Savings benefits scheme, HR-related admin and project work. All in all, I’m kept pretty busy!
Beyond the workplace, I lead a busy life with my partner and two small children – who both like to keep us on our toes! I enjoy seeing friends, eating out, walking, reading, but above all, having quality family time for days out and holidays to make memories.
