I started my professional career in accounting and quickly decided that this was not for me. Although I enjoy the analytical side of accounting work, I needed more exposure to people!
I am someone who loves to chat and meet new people and I soon realised that I wanted to embark on a career in HR. I started my HR career in a law firm working as an HR generalist, I soon realised that I had a huge interest in payroll, wellbeing, and HR systems and knew that when I left to embark on a new challenge, it needed to be somewhere that would allow me to thrive doing the things I love most.
HR Now has given me the opportunity to help clients with their payrolls, to be outsourced to clients to help with projects, and grow my knowledge on local employment law. These are all aspects that will help me to become the fully-rounded HR professional I aspire to be.
I have studied my CIPD Level 3 and have recently started my Level 5 CIPD. When I am not busy attending college and studying, I enjoy having a night out with friends, socialising whilst playing bingo and joining in on quiz nights. This is often followed by a Chinese takeaway the following day! I also love a hot, sunny holiday!
"Jess supported Intertrust with a 6 week interim role in-between a leaver and a joiner. She quickly picked up the time critical multi-jurisdictional payroll tasks and a variety of other HR Advisor level activities. She fitted in really well and comes highly recommended by me and our team."
