Jennie Curtis

Head of People

 

What am I responsible for?

I am responsible for our people policies and processes, ensuring that they support the training, wellbeing and safe working practices for our employees and volunteers. This includes our recruitment policy, so if you are visiting my profile after looking at our careers information, you will find my contact details to the right of this page. I lead the People team which also includes internal communications and workplace and facilities management.

 

What brings me here?

I am a chartered member of the CIPD and have been working in Training, HR (People) and Recruitment based roles for around 11 years.

 

What am I working on?

My team and I are currently focused on the challenges of enabling everyone to work safely through and post Pandemic. One of my main priorities is also supporting the design and delivery of an organisation wide development programme focused on Personal Development, Disability and Mental Health Awareness. I am very excited to be supporting Sally in creating a diversity and inclusion strategy and ensuring this is reflected in our people policies and practices.

 

What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?

I love hiking and travelling to new challenges. Pandemic permitting, I play a lot of netball – although I do practice yin yoga to balance the frequent injuries this causes! (I have been known to come to work on crutches and in a cast!!). I am terrible at meditating or being still generally but love losing myself in anything creative. (She/her)
