I have worked for the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce since 2002, fulfilling various roles within the Human Resource department allowing me to complete my CIPD qualification in February 2007 and becoming a MCIPD in January 2008. After the spilt of Business Link and Chamber In April 2007 I took on the boarder remit of Head of Corporate Services and a subsequent reshuffle in April 2009 resulted in the present role of Head of Operations. This current role allows a mix of operational and strategic duties working with staff, Chamber members and the Board. In 2013 the Northamptonshire Chamber was successful in its bid to run a Chamber in the Milton Keynes area and so I now take on the spilt role of Head of Operations for both organisations. Previous to joining the Chamber I held various roles including working with the Armed Forces and their families in Information Offices across Germany.
