Hannah Stokes

Human Resources Manager - HR Services


"I currently work as a HR Manager in HR Services. I started working at the University on a 3 month fixed term contract which quickly became open ended and 12 years and 4 months later I am still here! I have worked in a number of roles within HR. I started as a HR Assistant and have since been promoted to HR Adviser, Project Officer and now HR Manager. I have worked in different teams within HR and also had experience working on a University wide project group. 

The University is a diverse organisation, which is ever changing and always brings new challenges. No one day is the same in my role and I love that. My role is fast paced and requires me to be reactive, as well as manage longer term projects. I have continued to get development opportunities which has allowed me to develop as an individual. The University is a fantastic employer with great pay and benefits. I work in a fantastic department where everyone is supportive and collegial.

If you are interested in working for the University of Sheffield I would highly recommend it!"
