Human Resources Business Partner
Jackie guides a range of council services, to help deliver business priorities, promote good employee relations and ensure we meet our legal obligations when recruiting new staff.
Jackie’s career with B&NES has benefited from the challenge and interest of a wide variety of work, and the chance to gain professional accreditation. Currently, she's studying for a coaching qualification. She enjoys working with a very supportive and positive Head of Service.
Jackie says that flexible working was the principal reason she first chose to work for local government. She enjoys the variety of council office locations: “They are very different - from large open plan and airy, to smaller and more traditional offices. I do have to plan my time to ensure that I have somewhere to work, but if I don't have any meetings, I can easily work at home, which is ideal when I need to concentrate.”
Living on the outskirts of Bath, Jackie loves being surrounded by beautiful countryside and clean air. She also enjoys being so close to Bristol, where she grew up: "I spend quite a lot of time there - its got art centres, free museums and just a lot going on."
