Laura Cassam Hughes

HR Administrator

Quick Fire:

My last meal on earth: Steak (Well Done) with Dauphinoise Potatoes and Sliced Runner Beans with Raspberry Roulade for pudding.

The album I’d take to a desert island: Disturbed – Ten Thousand Fists

The movie I could have on repeat: Hot Fuzz (No luck catching them swans then!)

On my bucket list: To go on safari and feed an elephant and a giraffe

At OGL, I’m responsible for…

I have a very varied role in HR including absence management, organising long service awards, updating HR policies and procedures, completing DSE assessments, supporting recruitment and payroll.

The thing I’m most proud of in my job is.…

Watching employees confidence grow from being nervous new starters to being effective members of the teams!

People may not know that in my role…

My colleagues always request the same 3 cakes from me – Chocolate orange, lemon and poppy seed or my Lotus Biscoff cupcakes.

Before OGL I…

Worked for a facilities management company called Arcus, supporting the specialist engineers whilst on site.

What I like most about working at OGL is…

The variety my role gives me, one day I could be archiving, interviewing, helping with a payroll query, next day at a careers fair inspiring the next generation!

The best career advice I’ve been given…

We spend more time at work than we do at home, so it is very important to be doing something you really love.

When I was growing up, I wanted to be…

A police officer and I was a special constable for a few years.

Away from the office you’ll find me…

Either baking or following my better half all over the country watching him complete in triathlon and running events.
