"I always want to deliver my best every day. Seeing others challenge themselves and working together to make RM a better place to work, whilst enjoying what they do, is very inspiring."

Michelle Rawnsley

Reward and Systems Manager

Over 15 years ago I decided that I wanted to progress my career in Human Resources. I had heard of RM as a reputable local employer and I joined as an HR Assistant. I had just completed an Apprenticeship in Business Administration. RM then helped me through my Open University degree.

My role gradually evolved to become more project focused, and later I moved into the Reward function. My career has progressed with RM and I am now the Reward and Systems Manager within HR. Reporting to the Group HR Director, I cover reward across the UK, and HR systems across the Group.

A typical day? No such thing! With continual change happening both within the business and the wider regulatory landscape, there is always new research to carry out and a welcome variety in my workload. I regularly work with our Shared Services Team in India, our HR Business Partners, Procurement, the Executive team and external advisers.

A project I particularly enjoyed working on was with one of my colleagues in the IS team, to build reports in Tableau. We spent time together to design and create reports that give valuable insight for HR. We also delivered self-service reports for managers to allow them to access relevant data on their teams. This resulted in a lot of time saved and provided concise information available when needed.

For me, the best parts about working for RM are my colleagues and the variety and satisfaction that my role brings. I’ve also been privileged enough to have the freedom and support from RM to help guide my own career forward.

I always want to deliver my best every day. Seeing others challenge themselves and working together to make RM a better place to work, whilst enjoying what they do, is very inspiring.

We strive to deliver great products and services to the education sector, and this makes me proud to work for RM. I love working for a company that wants to make a difference.
