IN FIVE WORDS: Make the most of everything

Vicky Barnes

HR Advisor

My Experience

A careers advisor once said that it would be HR or teaching for me. After starting my teaching degree, I quickly realised the direction I wanted to go in. So, whilst completing my degree, I embarked on my career in HR, secured my CIPD L3 Diploma and I joined HR Now.

My Specialisms

I have a broad range of clients on both ad-hoc tasks and more complex HR matters and projects which have been both challenging and rewarding. I am continuously developing as an HR professional and know that I have the support of our experienced team, to assist organisations in achieving best people practice and to ensure we advise with the most up to date Jersey (and Guernsey and UK) HR employment law knowledge. Clients require a broad range of support, including from recruitment to termination, appraisals and grievances, and disciplinaries. Additionally, I enjoy finding the right digital HR solutions for organisations in order to meet their needs and goals.

What can We do for You?

Our Digital DNA keeps us forward-thinking, and the increase of technological advancements driving HR change and streamlining heavy admin processes are fundamental to ensuring a contemporary efficient HR function. Through my experience of researching and leading the implementation of various HR Information Systems I help our clients choose the best HR System to suit the needs of their business. HR technologies are an important and affordable tool in improving the employee experience and developing employee engagement, we can help facilitate their implementation and offer guidance and insights to support your people in the most effective way

What makes me smile?

I am a real people person and always on the go. If I’m not visiting friends or family in the UK, you will see me cycling round Jersey, walking, or doing Yoga on the beach. Snowboarding and travelling are my go-to talking points but next on my bucket list is hiking Machu Pichu.
