HR Business Partner | Barclays

When Ellen was young, someone told  her the world wouldn’t go round without hundreds of people working together to push it, and whilst she now knows that’s not quite how it happens, she’s still a firm believer in the importance of people working together to learn, develop and achieve. It’s for this reason she joined HR, and continues to love every day of her role.

Ellen studied Management at Manchester University, before spending a year in Massachusetts studying and working part time as a teacher for students with learning difficulties.

Passionate about equality, Ellen is on the Diversity and Inclusion Council, being part of the winning team for the 2015 Women in Banking and Finance Diversity Team Award, for her role supporting females entering senior leadership.

Ellen believes we have a responsibility to give back to communities we operate in, and volunteers weekly, spending time with the elderly.
