HR Committee

I have worked in HR for over 20 years, predominantly in the public and charity sector. My experience spans from strategy to operations, including Organisation Development, Employee Relations, Change Management, Policies and Procedures, Recruitment, Reward and Performance Management and so on.

St Raphael’s was the first Hospice I visited when saying my final goodbyes to a work colleague of mine in 2009. I have been enormously impressed with the dedicated care that St Raphael’s provides, making a real difference to people's lives. Most people who have experienced bereavement will know how important local hospices are. St Raphael’s provides vital support and expert care to people when they are in an emotionally vulnerable place. The Hospice staff are truly remarkable in what they achieve for their patients in the wards, in their own homes and through the Wellbeing Centre.

When the HR Trustee opportunity became available, I immediately knew that I wanted to be a part of the board. I look forward to applying my abilities to help assist the Hospice as an independent charity. I am not local to St Raphael’s, travelling a great distance from Essex to the Hospice, however this is an organisation that I am very proud to be a part of on any scale.
