What is your current job and how long have you been doing it?

I am currently the HR Manager for Blue Diamond Group (Le Friquet Garden Centre) and have been in my role for 3 years, however I am leaving Blue Diamond and generalist HR Management in the New Year to specialise in Reward Management.

What does a typical day at the office look like for you?

That’s a hard one to answer because my job varies so much between visiting the UK Garden Centres for employee and management meetings and working from Head Office advising managers on employee matters, conducting interviews or catching up on admin.

If you weren’t doing your current job what would you like to do?

I spent a few years travelling on and off to the Caribbean, Seychelles and Australia on sea turtle and marine conservation projects, working on the beach and diving all in the name of research, so If I didn’t have my current job (and mortgage) I would like to be a Marine Conservation Researcher.

What was your first job?

My first ever job was working for Boots on the High Street on a Saturday. My first full-time job was in HR for BGL Reads.

What is your role/involvement with YBG?

I am new to YBG so my involvement is limited at the moment but I hope to be a help at events and to meet some new friends.

What is your favourite thing to do in Guernsey?

Spend a sunny day on Cobo Bay rounded off with fish and chips whilst watching the sun set.

Which three people would you have at your dinner table and why?

Dawn French, because I think she is hilarious and fabulous. Heston Blumenthal because in return he might invite me to one of his Fantastical Food events or to The Fat Duck in Berkshire and Oprah because she is so inspirational.
