Since joining our team back in 2016, Senior HR Advisor, Maddy Heanly, has completed a Bachelor of Business (Human Resources), and strongly values knowledge sharing and continuous learning.
Recently, Maddy has taken on an additional leadership role, supporting and facilitating learning opportunities with her peers – a role which is perfectly aligned with her desire to invest in others’ career paths.
Maddy is passionate about helping small-medium business leaders identify and realise the value in having a HR partner – working hard to build trust, accountability and responsibility with her clients – while finding innovative solutions to age old people challenges. With an eye on the future of work, Maddy particularly enjoys assisting her clients in Workforce Planning, ensuring that the needs and priorities of the organisation are aligned with the skills and capabilities of its people.
Maddy has a keen interest in the artistic side of HR, such as marketing and design, and enjoys finding new and creative ways to present information to gain the most engagement.
Maddy is a keen traveller, with a large soft spot for Italy. When not at work supporting clients, you’ll find her relaxing at home with family and friends, or planning her next trip!
