Hello! Long time no see…

I know it has been a long time since I have done a personal HR blog but to be honest, I haven’t really felt like writing for a while now, but I wanted to thank everyone who has been missing my little HR blog and have been writing to me directly!

Since I launched my business Rebox HR in March 2020, it has been incredibly busy and my little business has gained so much momentum, I’m incredibly proud of how well it has done but it leaves me very little time to blog at the rate I used to! I am writing lots of new content both on here and on my business blog, so if you’re looking for the more of the legal HR stuff, make sure you pop over and give it a follow.

The main reason people contact me is to ask about their own HR careers and what they need to do to progress so as an idea, some of the main questions I am being asked are:

  • How do I get into an HR career?
  • How can I progress my career?
  • I’m stuck in my HR job, I want to do something else – help!
  • What CIPD qualification is right for me?
  • Is it worth upgrading my CIPD membership?

As I am now getting around 10-15 emails a week, I thought I would take an opportunity to meet some of you online to talk all things HR, my book Launch Your HR Career (grab your copy here!) and answer your burning questions!

On 7th September 2021, I am hosting an event online at 6:30pm – it would be great if you could join me, to book your ticket, grab yours here! Spaces are limited and on a first come first serve basis so make sure you don’t miss out.

I look forward to seeing some of you there!

Goodbye 2019, hello 2020!

New Year, a new chapter, a new verse or the same old story? Ultimately, we write it, the choice is ours.

Happy New Year everyone!

Apologies for the silence over the past few months, I have taken some much needed time to reflect on my priorities and took some time out for my mental health, I am feeling much better and I’d like to thank those who offered their support.

So without further ado, with a new year comes plenty of new opportunities and with it being a sparkly new decade, I fully intend to make the most of it!

Autumn is by far my favourite time of the whole year, cozy jumpers, hot coffee, leaves falling in the crisp air, and nothing beats a hot stew from the slow cooker after an walk outdoors with my dog Bron!

A lot of people experience the blues after a glorious summer, but to me, the Autumn season brings a whole new kind of energy, filled with optimism and opportunity.

After completing my final CIPD exam at the end of September, it is time for me to complete the final pieces of outstanding coursework for my Level 7 and bring the focus back to the blog, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I’ve completed my level 3 CIPD, do I go straight to level 7?

Plus an exclusive announcement about HR acts of kindness!

You must be used to these videos now and no I’m not getting any better at recording them haha! In this week’s video I have received a question from a contact on Twitter regarding the bridge between level 3 and level 7 CIPD qualifications, is level 5 worth it? Or do we go straight to 7 (do not pass go or collect £200)

In the video, you will also hear some buzz around HR acts of kindness and a secret (not so secret now!) announcement about an exciting project coming soon!

One common question I get asked all the time when I’m talking about my blog is “how do you find inspiration to write about all this stuff?”

Firstly, there is always a deep meaning behind every one of my published blog posts (there’s over 200 of them now!) and whilst it is not intended to be positive vibes everywhere, it is just how it has turned out, being a naturally positive person gives it direction which comes through naturally in my work. Secondly it helps to be passionate about the subject matter, you never know how you might inspire others through your experiences, this is something I never take for granted.
