I graduated in 2015 with a 1st Class (Hons) Degree in B.Sc. Psychology. I joined Doris in May 2017, and am currently on my first assignment as HR Support on a Retail Business Transformation (RBT) at The Co-operative Group. The RBT is a Programme which aims to transform the IT systems within the Business. I report in to the HR Lead, and assist with general HR activities including recruitment, resourcing and risk & issues management, as well as developing my knowledge in more specialised areas of HR, including Organisational Design and Learning and Development - an amazing opportunity for my first step into the HR world.
I am also developing my knowledge around change and project management, learning from experienced change management consultants, and also building my knowledge of IT systems. This is my first job in IT, and I have come to realise that you don’t have to be a ‘techie’ to work in, understand or enjoy IT.
I have learned so much in a short time, and continue to develop every day. This is aided by the way Doris works; providing ongoing training and support via their incredible mentors. I am so grateful to have Sam as my mentor, as she is always there with a smile and a cup of tea, as well as her expert advice.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, eating out, going for walks and binge-watching Netflix.
