After completing an MA in Human Resource Management at the University of Leeds, I started my job as an HR Officer in the Paediatrics Department at the University of Oxford last October. So far, this role has offered me a great insight into the day-to-day life of an HR Generalist, which I thoroughly enjoy.
I support the work of the HR Manager, for example, by helping in all stages of recruitment within our department. We as HR are there for our colleagues in all matters regarding parental and annual leave, professional development, or questions about their contract.
I am also a member of the Equality and Diversity Committee, that is not only responsible for the Athena Swan Award application but also to create a positive atmosphere that supports the well-being and professional development of staff members.
