At Ardmac, we foster an environment that promotes the personal and professional growth of all our employees. Ardmac’s HR Executive Emma Hoey spoke to us about her career growth and how Ardmac have supported this journey.

How long have you been with Ardmac? 

I started with Ardmac in August 2015, 7.5 years ago now.

How has your career progressed since you began working with Ardmac? 

When I came to Ardmac I had just completed my masters in HR and was lucky to see a two week position advertised with Ardmac to help with processing some HR data. Two weeks quickly passed, and I was delighted to be asked to stay and join the HR team.

Over the years my role has progressed with a lot of extra duties and responsibility year on year. My role is busy and quite varied, which I do enjoy, from the processing of daily HR related tasks, compensation and rewards including the processing of payroll, wellness activities to managing our fleet of vehicles. There is never a dull moment!

How has Ardmac supported your professional development? 

I have continued my professional development and education whilst still working with Ardmac through my CIPD membership and completing several courses from a Certificate in Reward Management to IPASS certification, Ardmac have supported me throughout.
