How did you first hear about Inoapps?
I heard about through a Recruitment Agency in Aberdeen. I had literally just left my HR position at a University when they called me about the role. In the space of one week, I had an interview and I was offered the role.
How long have you been working for Inoapps?
Just over two years. I started in 2017.
What was your initial attraction to the company and why did you apply for a role?
My initial attraction to the company was the size and headcount. Previously I had worked for smaller consultancy type firms and I was looking to go back to that type of environment. The job spec was quite varied, and it was a good fit for what I was looking for.
What projects have you worked on and which ones did you enjoy the most?
I have really enjoyed creating our induction program which is currently ongoing. Other than that, I have worked on projects dealing with updating policies such as GDPR regulations. A lot of the HR projects are quite varied because business and life is constantly changing. I’m involved in recruitment, employee relations, interviews, payroll and much more.
What learning and development schemes have you been a part of and where do you see your path to progression leading you?
I got to a lot of the HR seminars in Aberdeen which cover a variety of issues in the HR world. They are all quite insightful. I also shadow the HR Manager, so I consider that to be a form of training as well. At some point, I would like to get an official CIPD qualification and this is something that the company are supportive of.
What is the best part about working for Inoapps?
I would say it’s the environment. We are a small company, but it feels like family and friends. Everybody knows your name and what you do, and it has a real personal feel. In other companies, you can at times feel like a number. But at Inoapps, I feel like we really invest in each other professionally and personally.
What’s been your favourite Inoapps moment so far?
Just getting to be a part of the Inoapps way of life has been great for me, so I would say it’s all about my colleagues.
What would be the first piece of advice you would give to someone joining the company?
Embrace the changing environment. It’s exciting and there’s always new ideas and systems being introduced. Be prepared for your role to be varied. That’s not easy for everyone but it’s something that should be enjoyed.
