YOUR TRUSTED PARTNER
Our job is to make your job easier.
At HR Project Partners, it is our mission to uncomplicate HR issues, and deliver the best possible HR services and solutions to make your business run smoothly, so you can get back to focusing on the work at hand.
As Owner and Principal Consultant with HR Project Partners, I am a dedicated Senior Professional with over 20 years’ experience in various fields, including: Human Resources Management, Project Coordination, Communications, Public Relations, Training, Labour Relations, Industrial/Provincial Benefits Agreements, Employee Assistance Programs, Community Development, Stakeholder Engagement, Non-Profit Organizations and Socio-Economic impacts.
My experience includes working within heavy industrial environments, construction, oil and gas, mining and non-profit organizations. I have worked on both EPCM Projects and within a corporate environment and I know the resources needed to work in both.
My unique experiences working with a diverse range of individuals and organizations, from small to large, both private and public sectors has served me well in supporting the requirements of corporate and project initiatives, especially in challenging times. I have a reputation for resolving issues, getting results and supporting relationship building through knowledge, experience, common sense, honesty, trust and integrity.
My formal education includes obtaining a Bachelor of Social Work Degree and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and Psychology from Memorial University of Newfoundland. I have also completed my Masters Certificate in Project Management and have my certification as a Project Management Professional. I am currently a member with Chartered Professionals in Human Resources in Newfoundland and Labrador, a member with Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Social Workers and member of the Project Management Institute.
HR RECRUITMENT ADVISOR
I have more than 4 years’ experience in a Human Resources capacity. I have been involved in both large scale and small-scale recruitment from a project environment, to government, and to consulting. I have worked on a large scale oil and gas project in Newfoundland and was successful in the process of recruiting and on-boarding hundreds of craft and staff personnel and meeting the requirements of the Provincial Industrial Benefits Agreements and Collective Agreement. My involvement and work experience with government has allowed me to become well versed in the recruitment of unionized personnel, as well, and abiding by the Collective Agreement as it relates to recruitment. I have worked with two consulting companies as a Coordinator delivering various Human Resources functions such as recruitment, policy and procedure development, on-boarding new staff, development of employment contracts and offer letters, and ensuring compliance with Labour Standards regulations.
Recruitment is one of the areas of Human Resources I am most passionate about. I enjoy working with, and helping others, whether it be colleagues, clients or candidates. I have volunteered most of my life and giving back to our communities is very rewarding. I feel that working in Human Resources allows me to do my job and also give back in one way or another.
HR RECRUITMENT ADVISOR
I have 12 years’ professional experience in all areas of Human Resources and Labour Relations. Most of my career has been spent working on construction sites where I was the main point of contact for union representatives and managers. This includes working on large scale projects in Newfoundland and Labrador, Alberta and Ontario as well as, working with apprenticeship boards across Canada. I have extensive experience in recruiting in a unionized environment, as well as recruiting in a non-unionized environment. Most recently, I have spent time in a corporate setting, working in the fields of recruitment, and compensation and benefits. My career has allowed me to work in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, construction, consulting and software development. I have also worked with different Impacts and Benefits Agreements (IBA) supporting the Indigenous peoples of Canada, this would include Inuit, Metis, and First Nations.
My background consists of being a recruitment administrator, generalist, advisor (supervisor) and coordinator with experience in recruitment, selection, retention, coaching, policy and procedure development, staff development, employment law, labour standards (for all provinces), investigations, performance management, employee benefits, conflict resolution, and temporary foreign worker recruitment.
Both construction and corporate working environments, are very unique and challenging in different ways, but it has allowed me to grow as a Human Resources and Labour Relations professional, and with this, I am able to offer this diversity to colleagues, clients and candidates.
People always ask me why I chose to go in Human resources; my answer was then, and is still the reason I do it today; I love calling a candidate and telling him/her that they are hired. The pure excitement and almost relief in their voices is why I enjoy coming to work every day. At times, and depending on the economy, it can be a challenge to obtain work and knowing you may have changed a person’s life makes it easier to do and love my job.
Before finishing my Diploma I completed a 6 week work term with a Recruitment Agency in which I provided support to the recruitment team and other office support as it was needed. My working experience in Customer Service for more than 6 years has provided me with a well-rounded and personable approach for Human Resources. I enjoy interacting with different people everyday, and it is a rewarding feeling when helping others. Based on my experience in Customer Service, and the feedback I received from coworkers and customers, I realized that Human Resources was a field I was eager to work in.
I started at HR Project Partners in July 2018 as a HR Assistant, where I provide support to the recruitment team. I assist with developing job descriptions, postings, document formatting, and other office support. I am always keen to learn, and develop my skills in Human Resources.
