Tell us about your role.
My role as HR Officer is very diverse and no two days are the same! My responsibilities include processing payroll, absence management, performance management, employee relations and answering HR queries, amongst many other things!
Tell us a bit about your background.
I joined AJ Bell straight from University three years ago and haven’t looked back since. I started as a Trainee HR Officer and the company supported me through my Level 5 CIPD Qualification. Once qualified, I was promoted to HR Officer.
How would you describe the culture at AJ Bell?
The culture at AJ Bell is friendly, open, energetic and hands-on. We work hard to make investing easy for our customers, hit targets and deliver a good service, but we also have fun and let our hair down at pay day drinks, Christmas parties and summer socials. The culture is also great now that we have our own on-site gym; we have free classes before work, at lunch and after work, so it’s a great way to meet people across the business and to keep fit.
How would you describe the working environment?
The working environment is spacious and innovative with lots of break-out areas for group work, team meetings and 1-2-1 meetings, so you don’t feel as though you are confined to your desk all day. The roof terrace is a great place to have lunch on a sunny day!
Are you excited about the future at AJ Bell?
The company is growing each week (literally) and I think now is a great time to be working at AJ Bell. I am excited about my career here and how that will develop and progress over time.
