Operations Director

I am the Operations Director here at Just R, looking after all project delivery aspects of the business. From systems & processes and metrics to client experience, and looking after our team and their development, my role is to make sure we are always improving.

I started working for the NHS in admin & clerical in Belfast following completion of my Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Ulster. Having moved to Southampton to complete my Masters in Forensic Psychology, I worked in Financial Services for a couple of years before making the move to Carlisle and joining the team at Victim Support, first in admin then as a Domestic Abuse support worker. Needing a career change due to the pandemic, I joined Just R in 2021, initially as a Candidate Consultant. My time here has been a whirlwind, with my career developing at the speed of the business. I have covered almost every role in the business with a good period in Project Management before moving to my current role.

At every point in my development, I have had the opportunity to complete formal training – from Andy Hanselman’s Accelerated Leadership Programme to the Help to Grow: Management Course through Lancashire University’s Business School.

I love that I have the ability to shape my own role for the betterment of the business, and ultimately our NHS clients. At Just R we are empowered to be innovative, and always encouraged to share new thoughts and ideas. It’s incredible to see the results of this – we really do live our value of making things happen!
