Growing up in England, Jan has had the incredible opportunity to work with both the Public & Private sectors in the United Kingdom and here in Australia.
Her time working with Defence Forces, Legal Firms, Retail Industry, Not For Profit Organisations, as well as the Aviation Industry, has given Jan an incredible combination of skills and expertise, that is almost un-parallel.
She is a woman of great strength & knowledge, yet is compassionate & realistic in every way.
Jan has been responsible for the development of processes, delivery of operational HR excellence and strategic direction of people issues in roles as a Human Resource Manager and HR Business Partner for various organisations large and small, working at Senior Management and Board levels. Jan sees the move to Beyond HR Consultancy as a natural business transition as it gives Jan the opportunity to continue to combine the professional fields of Human Resources, Recruitment and Business Development in the commercial environment.
Supporting the small to medium sized business is the area that interests Jan the most as she can quickly identify many ways that HR can value add and affect the ‘bottom line’ through streamlining activities, organisational reviews and regular HR Audits. Jan considers engaging internal staff in these processes aids retention and improved employee accountability leading to increased productivity and ownership of any changes that may occur.
A seasoned HR leader who has reinforced organisational core values and behavioural expectations by example and is able to influence at all levels. She is driven to deliver in a collaborative manner with the courage to challenge and act decisively.
Jan is passionate and enthusiastic about Human Resources and its service delivery capabilities, is able to understand business drivers and the way in which HR expertise can make an impact above and beyond its traditional ‘administrative’ function.
Jan brings a wealth of experience rarely available in the market place and is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and an Associate Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management.
