The journey to writing my debut book, "A Practical Guide To: UK Employment Law", was an adventure of late nights, endless cups of coffee, daunting challenges, and exciting triumphs. Every word I wrote, every concept I explored, was a step forward in a journey made possible by the unwavering support of those around me.
My professional journey began at Sky, a renowned broadcaster and telecommunications company, where I spent four enriching years. Starting as a Customer Service Agent, I honed my communication, problem-solving, and customer relations skills. As I rose to the position of Team Manager, I developed a deeper understanding of team dynamics, conflict resolution, and the importance of a strong workplace culture, all fundamental aspects of HR.
From there, I moved to Webwarecare, a website development and maintenance company I co-founded with my husband, Mark Bear. As a four-year business development manager, I was deeply involved in client acquisition, data management, and strategic planning. This position allowed me to refine my leadership skills and gain a firsthand understanding of HR's role in shaping business strategies.
Finally, I found my calling in the HR sector at LSOP, a residential nursing charity for the elderly and disabled people. Over four years, I grew from an HR Assistant to an HR Officer. I delved into employment law, employee relations, performance management, and HR policies. This role gave me a comprehensive understanding of HR's role in fostering a positive and productive work environment.
Parallel to my professional journey, I pursued an enriching academic path. After earning my Level 3 Diploma in HR Practice from CIPD in 2017, I pursued The Manager's Toolkit at the University of London in 2022. I am studying for an MSc in Human Resource Management at the same university. These academic pursuits have further deepened my understanding of HR concepts and practices.
Despite these achievements, I was driven to share my insights and knowledge with a broader audience. Inspired by my struggles with the complexities of UK employment law, I decided to write a book to help others navigate this dense and mystifying forest.
"A Practical Guide To: UK Employment Law", my first published book, is a testament to the personal and professional journey I have been on. This book will empower entrepreneurs and managers to establish a just and productive work environment.
I am happy to announce that "A Practical Guide To: UK Employment Law" will be available at major bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple Books, by Christmas 2023. This accomplishment is a culmination of my personal and professional experiences. And while this is my first published work, I intend to continue writing on UK HR-related topics.
The journey of writing "A Practical Guide To: UK Employment Law" has been an enriching experience for me, and I hope it will benefit many others in their professional journeys. This book is about the transformative power of understanding and accurately applying UK employment law, a passion I am excited to share.
