Laura Perry, HR manager
VGC sponsored Laura to gain her Certificate in Personnel Practice, and after she passed it in 2005 she was promoted to deputy HR manager, and then, in January 2008, to HR manager. With VGC’s sponsorship, she passed her CIPD Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resources Management in June 2009.
Laura is responsible for recruitment, staff management and industrial relations processes. She set up VGC’s occupational health scheme, the business and construction apprenticeship programmes, and works on applications for training grants from the CITB. She ensures that VGC complies with industry training requirements. Her work led to VGC’s gaining authorised signatory status for airside security clearance of VGC staff working on projects at Heathrow airport, and security protocols for the Hinkley Point nuclear facility project.
She is also a member of the VGC charity committee. VGC staff raised over £12,700 for Bloodwise and is now raising funds for State of Mind Sport.
“I’m grateful for the training opportunities that have led to my current role.” says Laura. “Because a key part of my job is to respond to the ever-changing requirements of our people and clients, no two days are ever the same, which I really enjoy.”
