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 Onogo.com 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 onogo.com, which for me is what makes it all worth while.
