Kathryn Archbold

Head of HR

I have over 14 years HR experience and I have worked in a variety of operational, advisory and strategic HR roles mainly within the Higher Education sector. I have an MSc in Human Resource Management and Associate membership of the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD)

As the Head of HR for M&D Care Ltd, I work with the Human Resources team to deliver a professional HR service to support M&D Care’s objectives, mission and values in compliance with the governance structure of care and employment legislation.

I oversee the Recruitment, Learning & Development and Communication teams who work tirelessly to ensure we are attracting and retaining the best possible candidates for care. Our Recruitment team provide candidates with an opportunity to understand the rewards and challenges in care, and support new starters step by step through the recruitment and induction process.

The Learning & Development function promotes life-long leaning to ensure staff are continually developing professionally and all knowledge and learning is up to date and in line with best practice within the sector.

Our newly formed Communications team is vital for us to be able to engage and communicate with staff effectively through a range of communication platforms.

I work closely with the Head of Service, Directors and Managers providing HR support and advice
