Seed Sensations

I joined Hovis in 2018 as Head of HR -  Organisational Development. I studied Psychology at University and helped in my family's Fish and Chip restaurant so I suppose working in food is in my DNA. Since then I have had a variety of Learning and Development roles in the Consumer Goods sector during my career before joining Hovis. 

I have responsibility for the development and capability processes for Hovis as well as our Apprentice Strategy. My team work closely across all functions to deliver training solutions to support internal development needs using both our internal functional experts as well as signposting training delivered by our training providers. We are a small, positive, proactive team with a can-do attitude!

Hovis is a unique environment, which relies heavily on teamwork. It is always busy, but there is great camaraderie. In my role, I need to be resilient, agile and build great relationships across the business.

I am proud to work for such an iconic brand and of course, I have a favourite product - Hovis Granary thick, ideally with lashings of butter and Marmite!
