My journey at Onogo

Karen - HR

I started as an Accounts Assistant In October 2015, looking after the administration, payroll and assisting the Accounts Manager with other accounting tasks. When I started the company employed 15 staff, to date we have 40+ and growing.

I am very much a people person

I naturally aspired to the HR role, as I am very much a people person and I have found it is something I really enjoy in every aspect. Some of parts of the role are difficult, however we also find a nice way to deal with any issues. Our accounts manager left so I also manage this department as well, with one other staff members who has been with the company since November 2015.

My background is accounts assistant, general office roles. Having joined I have been given the opportunity to thrive in an HR area which I oversee along with the accounts department. As an overview of myself personally and how I have developed into my role.

I feel I am a great communicator and mediator I understand each point of view will always see both sides. You have to have a positive can do attitude and approach to what you may face each day which can be challenging when your day maybe planned and you face unexpected issues. I am very organised in every aspect of my life so this is really positive in my position as HR and accounts. On the downside I have a huge inability to say No.

No day is the same at, which for me is what makes it all worth while.
