Aine started her career working is several Director office departments in the NI Civil Service where she developed a love of people management. After three years in the NI Civil Service, she spent two years directly supporting the CEO of the World Police & Fire Games before moving to Canada to take up a role in Recruitment and HR. On return Aine joined Deloitte in Dublin as a HR Coordinator before commencing lecturing in Southern Regional College while studying for her masters.
After completing her Masters in HR over two years with two babies aged only one month and eleven months, Aine knew the formal structure of an inhouse HR function would not suit her lifestyle. Starting with referrals from friends and family, The HR Elephant was born in 2017.
