I joined Sewell in July 2006 as HR Admin, and became the Head of People for the Group in 2012. I also became the Head of Professional Services in 2020, taking the reins from our Group FD, Simon Davison, which means that in addition to looking after the People Team, I also head up and support the Finance Team for our Estates businesses, Group Administration, Marketing & Communications, Safety, Environmental and Compliance (SEC) and our Technology Team.
I love being one of the many at Sewell that champion the culture and behaviours of our heritage, whilst embracing and nurturing the new ideas of our people as our business grows. Working with so many fantastic people makes this company a home for talent, and a great place to be, not only you can thrive, but you get great engagement from supporting others to grow too.
Looking back on my career, being part of the team that supported the Group in being named in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For lists over the years has been a great source of pride for me. There’s no hiding with these things, and it’s based entirely on the feedback of our people, and our People Team are key in developing and nurturing what supports that.
One fact that you might not know about me is that I trained to be a PRINT® practitioner a number of years ago. I am an ambassador for this within our business, and am very passionate about how behavioural science like this can support positive wellbeing.
