I completed a general business degree 20 years ago, a Bachelor of Commerce, with final year specialisms in Finance and Human Resources. I worked initially as a banker for eight years before realising I really wanted a career in HR. So, I went back to college to study for a Masters in Organisational Psychology, and started my HR career 12 years after leaving school!
I initially built out my HR skills by purposely gaining experience in different specialisms – Learning & Development, HR Project Management, HR Operations, HR Outsourcing – before moving into a generalist HRBP role. I have spent the last six years honing those generalist skills, and truly love the journey I have travelled to get to this point in my career.
