Sandra Wood HR & Office Manager

I have been with CaseWare since it was incorporated in 1997, under the name of Credence Software. Prior to this I worked for AuditWare Systems, the former distributor of CaseWare and before that I worked in publishing for several years. I am the HR Manager at CaseWare as well as being in charge of the day to day running of the office.
 

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working at CaseWare over the last 23 years, and seeing the company grow and welcoming new team members is really rewarding. I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere at CaseWare and the opportunity to have a positive influence on the employee experience."

How has your career changed since you first started working at CaseWare?
My initial role was that of Sales Administrator, but as the company grew my role evolved not only to accommodate the needs of the company but my work interests too.  I branched out into managing the general running of the office as well as learning to run the payroll. As we expanded, the requirement for a dedicated HR professional became apparent and turned out to be the niche that I would find most rewarding.  As a result, I later formalised several years of experience by gaining a diploma in HR Management and becoming an associate member of the CIPD.

What do you like to do outside of work? 
During my free time I like to spend time with family and friends, ideally out for coffee and cake, lunch or dinner!  I like to go for walks in the open countryside and at the coast, ideally with a pub involved somewhere along the way.  I also enjoy gardening, watching gripping thriller TV series and going to the theatre.

What does a typical day at work look like for you?
I think anyone in HR would agree that no 2 days are ever the same, which is what makes the role so interesting.  So a typical day will be different to the one before and the one after, potentially full of surprises and challenges that keep me on my toes.
