HR was a bit of a career change for Charlie, as before joining True North she was a bar tender and a part-time musician! She fell into HR about 5 years ago, working for a food production company and ended up moving to one of their sites in Wales.
For the past 3 years, she was a HR Advisor at an Adult Social Care company, making sure everything ran smoothly as possible – this was particularly challenging when COVID hit! She finished her CIPD Level 5 in April 2021 and then decided to start a degree in Sociology with the OU in October 2021, doing this alongside her role at True North.
When did you join True North?
What do you do at True North?
I do all things HR! So far, lots of contract production, but I’m hoping to get really involved with the employee wellbeing side of things as this is a big passion of mine.
Anything that stands out about your career?
At my previous company I implemented a few different toolkits to support people whilst at work, including one focusing on the menopause and one on substance misuse – I really enjoyed working on the substance misuse toolkit as this is something very close to my heart and I think its super important!
What’s your favourite bit of your job?
The fact that there is so much room for growth – I’m really excited to get stuck in!
What show would you most like to make if you could make anything in the world?
Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge (AHAAA!)
Anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
The key to my heart is Greggs Sausage Rolls and Fanta 😊
