Mary Macaulay

Senior HR Officer

I joined the Paediatrics HR Team in October 2021. Prior to that, I was working in HR for a non-profit. My experience before that is more varied. I moved into HR from a background in teaching. I have taught English in different contexts, including Spain, Peru and Colombia. I hold a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages (Spanish) and an MPhil in Latin American Studies.

In my current role, I support recruitment across our different research groups as well as supporting staff throughout their time with Paediatrics. Our team provide support to employees and managers in areas such as parental and annual leave, professional development, or questions about policies and contractual terms.

I also provide administrative support to two of our committees:

  • The Equality and Diversity Committee, which is not only responsible for the Athena Swan Award application but works to create a positive atmosphere that supports the well-being and professional development of our staff.
  • The Early Careers Researchers (ECR) Committee, which supports the career development of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in the Department of Paediatrics.
