Whilst in government, Angela led and managed divisional HR teams in the delivery of projects, processes and services, and provision of advice on employee conditions and entitlements. She has developed and implemented various policies and practices such as HR delegations and induction programs, and facilitated change management working groups, leadership development programs and staff engagement strategies. At Child Safety, Youth & Women (CSYW), Angela produced a state-wide on-boarding toolkit for Child Safety Officers and undertook benchmarking and research to inform development of a workload management guide. She has a track record of promoting and embedding continuous quality improvement frameworks and measures into policy and procedures.

Learning and Development

Angela has partnered with managers on contemporary learning and development initiatives including building staff capability, addressing performance issues, and enhancing team culture. She has delivered workshops and other fit-for-purpose offerings covering recruitment and selection, performance management, capability development and change management. Her clients have acknowledged her well-developed communication skills, professional expertise and ability to influence towards adoption of best practice solutions.

Organisational Design, Workforce Planning and Role Descriptions
