Victoria celebrated winning her award at the Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) Excellence in HR Management awards which took place in London on Thursday 7 June.

The award recognises up and coming HR practitioners who have a bright future ahead of them.  Entrants can be nominated by a senior manager or can self-nominate and must have worked in HR for a minimum of two years.

One of Victoria’s many achievements is her involvement in developing Audit One, a service which itself has recently been recognised at the HSJ Value Awards.

Victoria has been described by her colleagues as a ‘leading light’ with tireless energy and enthusiasm.  Victoria is no stranger to awards, as in 2017 she won the ‘Behind the scenes’ individual award at the Trusts Staff Excellence awards.
