Welcoming New Talent: Narrow Quay HR celebrates the addition of Andrew Miles and Eliza Weisse to the growing team
Andrew Miles joins us from the HE sector where he was an HR Business Partner and member of the senior management team of the largest faculty at the University of Surrey. Andrew brings with him extensive employee relations experience and is adept at navigating complex employee issues with a pragmatic, outcome focused approach.
One of Andrew’s strengths is his ability to act as a trusted advisor to senior leaders, influencing and contributing to problem-solving and decision-making at a senior level.
Before qualifying as an HR professional, Andrew worked at well-known travel agency, Trailfinders, where he managed large sales teams. This ‘real world’ experience of managing people means he understands the challenges that can come with people management and the need to find pragmatic solutions that work on a practical level. We are sure this will resonate with a lot of our clients.
Andrew’s sector expertise and background make him a great addition to the Narrow Quay team.
Due to our expansion and growth over the last few years, we have also recruited an HR Assistant. Eliza Weisse joins us having recently completed a Masters in Human Resource Management at Cardiff University.
Eliza will be working alongside the HR Consultants in the Narrow Quay HR team to support them in all aspects of the work that they do. This is a brand new role for Narrow Quay HR that reflects the need to continually review and develop the business to ensure that work can be delivered in the most efficient and cost effective way for our clients.
In addition to her academic achievements, Eliza is also fluent is three languages, which will no doubt also prove useful to our clients.
‘What a brilliant end to 2023. We’re delighted that Andrew and Eliza have joined the team. We’re looking forward to working with Andrew to develop our HE offering. It’s a sector we’ve worked with since our inception, but we feel Andrew’s extensive knowledge and experience will enable us to further increase our sector presence.
The recruitment of Eliza is a really exciting development for us. Providing high quality HR support has always been at the forefront of our vision for Narrow Quay HR. That’s why the team comprises HR Consultants who have backgrounds as either employment lawyers or senior HR professionals. This appointment will not only support the team in the work they do but will also allow us to develop and nurture talent at a more junior level.Caitlin Anniss and Sarah Martin
