Sourcing Insights Manager - Centre of Excellence
Alexander Mann Solutions
I manage a global team of Insights consultants (Manila, Gdansk and Belfast), providing research to help our colleagues be better at what they do.
My current job because it allows me to do what is important to me
I’m self-confessed geek and a boomeranger on my second stint with AMS (left the first time to have a family and run my own successful business). I have 20 years’ experience in HR and Recruitment, and was the youngest person to attain Chartered CIPD membership in UK & Ireland.
My proudest accomplishment is owning a Blue Peter badge!
Outside of work, I’m a busy mum of two (my son is 13 and my daughter is 10) and a carer for my husband, who has a degenerative condition.
My faith is central to my life and I volunteer twice a week.
Recruitment and human resources HR
I hold two pieces of advice close to my heart:
1) Treat others how you would like to be treated; and
2) You can’t always change your circumstances, but you can always change your perspective
Research, data and analytics
Masters in Business Administration
Art, Biology, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, French, Geography, History, ICT, Latin, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Spanish
Belfast High School, Newtownabbey
I loved Maths, Sciences and Art. I disliked Geography (but I think that had more to do with the teacher than the subject!)
Tenacity, perseverance, curiosity, creativity
Mentoring from others is the best way to learn; I've also developed my skills by studying while working. I find the combination of practical and theory works best for me.
