OUR TEAM

JACQUI WINTER
PRESIDENT

My passion has always been to help other people and to represent my company and myself professionally. I want others to trust and rely on us when they need help. Those are qualities that are important to me personally and to my company. My philosophy and a common thread throughout my whole career has been to help others. Being in business is not just about making money, to me it’s about helping candidates find meaningful employment and helping Clients hire qualified employees. I love to make that call that tells a candidate that they have been the one selected for the job.

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.

JANESSA COLE

RECRUITMENT LEAD

I graduated in 2014 with a Degree in Bachelor of Commerce (Co-op) and focused my studies in Human Resources and Labour Relations. I am a Chatered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) and currently a member with Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Newfoundland and Labrador.

I have more than 6 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 continue to do so, 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.

As a caring professional, my focus is on building loyal, respectful and collaborative relationships with my candidates and clients through consistent, positive service. This has been key to my professional accomplishments. I take pride in my work and assisting Clients in finding the right fit for their needs and matching Candidates to roles that will help them succeed and further their careers.

JENNIFER TRAVERS

ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR

I am a graduate of the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in Fredericton. I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor Degree in Business and I focused my studies in Marketing. I have lived in Labrador City for most of my life and have a strong desire to help my community, clients and their businesses succeed.  I moved back to my hometown of Lab City shortly after completing University, with a great understanding of the community members and how the economy shifts in a mining town.

Using my knowledge and education as a driving force early in my career, I have had the opportunity to gain some meaningful and diverse work experience.  This in turn has led me to where I am today at HR Project Partners. Some of the previous experience that has shaped my career started when I became a Labor Market Researcher for the local Labrador West Economic Zone Market.  During my tenure with this role, some of my achievements to note are in developing relevant statistics as well as forecasting the labor shortage which would result in the market demand. Another contract that I had the opportunity and pleasure to work on was assisting local skilled trade clients with their financial assistance.  This in turn offered opportunities for those participants to gain valuable education at the Department of Advance Education, Skills and Labor.  Further to this experience, I developed skills as a Project Administrator and later as a Business Analyst in the Finance department, work with IOCC.  Experienced in working within the business and customer service sectors, I have gained the confidence and people skills, along with the desire to support my employers, customers as well as my colleagues while looking out for their best interests.

I enjoy meeting new people as well as interacting and working with a great supporting team at the St. John’s office.  I am so thrilled to be part of this amazing company to assist here locally in my hometown of Labrador City.  As I work alongside with Jacqui, I will be responsible in on-board training, welcoming all new employees into the area, as well assisting the local community members with learning of many new job opportunities to come.
