Jackie - HR Business Partner
CALA Management Ltd
I joined CALA in June 2012 as HR Assistant and prior to this had worked for a local educational organisation. My previous role was very different to CALA but it allowed me to see the different challenges faced by public and private sector employees.
I enjoy working for CALA as it is an organisation that values its employees and works well together. I was made to feel welcome when I started as everyone was friendly, approachable and willing to help – something which is greatly appreciated when you are the “new girl”!
Another reason I really enjoy working for CALA is the support that is provided to staff for Training and Development opportunities. CALA sponsored me to complete my Masters in Human Resource Management and whilst it was challenging to juggle full-time work and studies, CALA were extremely supportive. This was an excellent opportunity to be given and has now enabled me to progress with the organisation to the role of HR Business Partner.
