Patricia is International Cat Care’s HR Director.
Patricia (also known as Trish) is a member of International Cat Care’s Executive Team and provides leadership on HR, Training, Talent Management, Welfare and Benefits, and Health & Safety. She is working on resourcing, development and maximising our people’s skills and abilities to enable the charity to achieve its overall strategic objectives.
Starting out her working life while travelling in Australia, Trish returned to the UK to work in recruitment management during the late 1980’s to the early 1990’s. She moved into the charity training sector, where she qualified as trainer, assessor, internal verifier and prior learning accreditation specialist. This work saw her working as Head of School for Business Studies across five TEC and two FE colleges.
She moved across to HR in 2000 working as HR Business Partner for a large international manufacturing company where she achieved CIPD & MCIPD. Later roles saw her working throughout the South West on a wide range of successful change and HR Systems contracts with companies such as Babcock, Wessex Water, and Virgin Care. Trish joined International Cat Care in June 2019 and has been fully involved in its re-organisation and restructuring activities since then.
Outside of work, Trish is keen on travelling, writing and walking. She is settled in Wiltshire and looking forward to homing some cats.
