Guernsey Raiders Rugby Sponsorship

In addition to my role at Leapfrog, I am proud to be the Sponsorship Director for Guernsey Raiders. Which in basic terms means I sit on the executive committee of the club. My primary responsibility is to not only bring new commercial sponsors into the club, but also to manage ongoing relationships with our current sponsors, as well as ensuring the agreements we have already struck are still… Guernsey Raiders Rugby Sponsorship

HR POST COVID-19: WHY WE CANNOT WASH OUR HANDS OF THIS ONE

Building back better following the Covid-19 pandemic is the hot topic right now, and quite rightly so. I guess the first thing to consider is whether we really are in a post Covid-19 place yet, or whether we are still en route. As all islanders are aware, Guernsey is fortunate to have had a long period of time with no active cases (as of time of writing this) so you… HR POST COVID-19: WHY WE CANNOT WASH OUR HANDS OF THIS ONE

How are you?

It’s a question that before March this year, most of us wouldn’t have thought twice in giving our answer to. ‘I’m fine thanks, you?’ Pretty standard answer that no one had to think about and it covered most of the things going on in our lives. Today though, I sit here typing this wondering if we’ll all be too scared to ask that simple question again in such a trivial way. If we do ask… How are you?

Disrupting the Norm by Stepping out of your Comfort Zone

Last August I was introduced via a friend to a new business contact. At the time I thought I was going to bag myself a free ticket to an HR event in Jersey… little did I know where that introduction was going to end! I never actually made it to the event in Jersey, however, a month or so later, I found myself invited to be part of the Guernsey version of that same event. I initially thought I… Disrupting the Norm by Stepping out of your Comfort Zone

A day in the life- working from home: Vicki

So many of us have had to adapt our working lives over the past few weeks and some of us are in a fortunate position where we can continue to work. Only now, we are based in our own homes. Working from home is not new to me.  Before joining leapfrog I worked remotely, sometimes in my clients offices but a large proportion of the time was from home, so I guess you could say I am a seasoned… A day in the life- working from home: Vicki

Routine, smoothies and soup

I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I have a job where I can work from home. There are many others with no job, no work and no pay and I am fully conscious of that as I write this. My brain needs routine. Don’t get me wrong, I can do random, I can do spontaneity but I do need structure, unless that one rainy day comes along and I can lie in until bed time… I found myself in week one… Routine, smoothies and soup

Careful focus and small joys

Social Distancing and Working From Home. In theory, neither or these topics filled me with fear or trepidation when they first surfaced. To be perfectly honest; I was kind of looking forward to the mandated home time. While I’m comfortable being a people person, I’m far more comfortable being a book or music person, with limited social obligation. And then came lockdown. Ultimately, it’s… Careful focus and small joys

Got a moment? Quick question - When is the last time you updated your CV?

When you applied for your current job? How long ago was that? 2 years? 5 years? In my case 19 years! As I was writing this I thought I would do as I preach – seems I have taken on a lot more than what was on my initial job spec and added a few more strings and achievements to my bow than I realised! Updating your cv does not have to mean you are looking for a new job, it can mean you are ready…

A good time to connect!

If pondering what to do with all your days in lockdown – how about turning that time into a positive and upskilling? There are plenty of free, online courses (digital marketing anyone?) which not only look great on your CV (shows initiative and a proactive mind-set), but also help you get absorbed in a subject you actually like. This would be a benefit to your mental health (keeping… A good time to connect!
