Our HR Manager, Jo, has been with us for over three years, having joined the company in what was originally a standalone role. Since then, she has grown her team to five members and brought jobs like payroll and recruitment in-house. She and her team have implemented an HRIS and continue to work hard so as to protect the business.
Jo originally found her way into it by accident, as many people do when they land the ideal job. Having once worked in banking, she became disillusioned with having to sell to people in deprived areas who were unable to afford certain services. On changing career paths, she told us, “In August 2002, I saw an advert for an HR Administrator, applied, got the job, and the rest, as they say, is history!”
Completing her MA in Human Resources Management was a huge step for Jo in terms of furthering her career, and it has come in handy when working with us at Novoferm. Jo aptly summed up the four things that she enjoys most about working for the company “The people. The challenge. The diversity of my role. The constant learning.”
