Alison Skinner, HR Officer, Royal BlindI am HR Advisor for both Royal Blind and Scottish War Blinded. I joined Royal Blind in 2010 with a wealth of HR knowledge, skills and experienced gained from a varied HR career. 

My job is an HR generalist, where I get the opportunity to work across the organisation with managers and staff to promote best practice HR solutions.

My role is really varied and day to day can include activities like dealing wtih recruitment, HR policy development, training and development, supporting managers and staff in HR issues, liaising with external bodies and delivering HR projects. I particularly enjoy the HR project opportunities that Royal Blind provides me and the autonomy I have to work within my profession to make a real difference to the organisation.
