Human Resources Manager


Joined Playdale


About me:

I am Cumbrian born and bred and feel incredibly lucky to live and work in this beautiful part of the world.

I have always worked in Human Resources and have undertaken various areas of studying in this field. I have attained  Level 7 CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) Human Resource Management and also have an MA in HR Management. All my studying has been done through the University of Central Lancashire.

When I’m not working or studying (!) I enjoy getting out walking on the Cumbrian fells with my two lovely labradors. I also enjoy yoga and travelling abroad.

Best thing about my job:

Since joining Team Playdale it has been great to be involved with the journey and progression of our people so far, embedding business improvements & innovation and working hard to instil a fresh, new team culture.

Favourite playground:

There is a timber playground at Lindale, close to my home which is a great example of the longevity of Playdale equipment as it is about twenty years old and still going strong! It’s great fun taking my numerous nieces, nephews and godchildren there to let off steam.

What our customers say...

The Playdale team worked closely with us to develop a vibrant theme for our new adventure playground at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, which is a unique site. The designs presented by Playdale fitted in with our woodland and heritage environment really well. The installation of the new playground equipment came with complications including a challenging split level location, active protected wildlife and the Covid-19 lockdown but the Playdale team were flexible and were able to deliver a fantastic looking adventure playground area for us despite some challenges along the way. Our visitors are now enjoying the play equipment and the new bespoke tower units certainly complement the woodland surroundings and have the wow factor we were hoping to achieve.

We are absolutely delighted with the service we have been given and the finished product is amazing for our children to play on. Everyone that I spoke to at Playdale since I first made contact have been very supportive and the end product is exactly what we were looking for. Huge thanks to everyone at Playdale for these fantastic products.
