Prior to working for Servest, Michaela frequently moved around the UK due to her husband’s military postings, but always had the ambition to forge her own career. After working as a shift leader at a health spa in Leicestershire, she relocated to Suffolk in 2012 and was ready for a new challenge.
SERVEST JOURNEY SO FAR
In December 2012, Michaela joined Servest as a coordinator for the time and attendance (T&A) team. She was soon promoted to the role of team leader, responsible for assisting in the roll out and development of the T&A system. Michaela was then relocated to South Wales and was offered the position of people services project manager. During this time, Michaela worked on improving the processes in T&A, payroll, and shared services and loved being able to come up with creative ideas to solve issues being faced by the team.
In January 2015, Michaela went on maternity leave and found herself leaning towards the learning and development (L&D) side of people services during her ‘keeping in touch’ visits. This led to her undertaking a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development qualification in HR development and in November 2016, she returned to work in her new role as an L&D project manager.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
“I am very happy in my role as project manager and I am thrilled to be getting involved in so many exciting projects and opportunities!” – Michaela
Michaela has a passion for working at Servest and is grateful for the support she has received from the company. She is looking forward to discovering whatever the future holds at Servest and ultimately wants to improve the overall development of Servest’s employees with the new learning management system and other innovative projects.
