Hello, I’m Heather, HR and Consultancy Apprentice Administrator.
My Background
After graduating from the University of Sheffield with a degree in English Literature, I initially began my career in an administrative role in a specialist school in Oxford. I thoroughly enjoyed supporting staff and the role helped develop my communication and organisation skills, equipping me with the tools to approach sensitive situations with thoughtfulness and understanding.

It was also my responsibility to enable effective communication between parents and co-workers and having spent time considering the skills that I had developed since graduating, realised my greatest strengths matched with a career in HR. I am thrilled to be currently working towards a Level 3 HR qualification with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development [CIPD], having secured the position of HR and Consultancy Apprentice Administrator with You HR.
My Approach
My work and my personal life require me to be an independent self-starter, and I really enjoy collaborating with a team to help solve a problem. Listening and understanding others is a huge part of how I approach situations, and I always apply impartiality when weighing up difficult situations.
Why You HR Consultancy
Having just started at You HR, I can already see how wonderful the team and their approach to HR consulting is. The personal approach they apply to all clients and their dedication to providing quality work shines through. I really have felt welcomed and supported, and could not have asked for a better team to work with!
My interests
Having a long-standing love of books, I currently volunteer part time as the editor of a local magazine, and I always have a good story on the go.

I was part of the kayaking club at university and, having been a competitive swimmer when I was younger, I am a big water sports fan. Since moving back to Oxfordshire, I have not been able to keep up with the sport as much as I would like, but I plan on getting back to it very soon!

I also love travelling and trying new food, and I visited South Korea and Japan after graduating from university.
