I am Head of HR for London Market, I started this role in early 2014. My role is to set the people strategy in London Market working with the management team to hire, develop and motivate employees to achieve our 2025 vision.
When I joined Hiscox in mid July 2007 it was as the Head of HR for the Group Functions and set up Talent Management at Hiscox. Only 15% of our senior roles were filled internally back then; the figure is now double. We have achieved this by both encouraging people to take on new roles and succession planning.
Previously I did a global role for Swiss Re based over the road in the gherkin, and prior to this I was with Debenhams and Christies in generalist HR roles. I have a keen interest in Psychology (it is what I studied at University). If I had more time I would exercise more often (particularly running) and travel more frequently, but with young daughters I don't have much time for either!
