Meet the HR Team

Joan Riddell

HR Manager

I have over 20 years experience in HR with a blend of strategic and operational skills gained from different sectors including local government, care sector, industry and education. I have extensive experience in talent and change management, employee relations and employee engagement strategies.

I am passionate about providing a pro-active value added service, providing expertise around best practice and legal frameworks, and adopting a coaching and collaborative style to support key organisational needs.

Georgina Charlesworth

Human Resources Advisor

I grew up in the Northwest, came to Brighton in 2016 to do a degree in Business and liked the South coast so much I have stayed. Before joining BHT Sussex I worked for the University of Brighton Students’ Union in a dual retail manager and HR role where I was responsible for the student staff payroll and worked on projects on diversity and inclusion, large scale student staff recruitment and engagement.

I have worked in the retail and hospitality sectors recruiting new team members, leading induction and ensuring colleagues know what is expected and have the training and support they need.

My hobbies include playing sports, local league football and paddleboarding. I am looking forward to broadening my HR experience at BHT Sussex and hope I can offer some new ideas about attracting and retaining new talent.

Lyn Bertolini

Human Resources Administrator

I have been working in HR for around 20 years in the commercial sector. The work that BHT does is inspiring and working for an organisation in whose work and ethos I believe in is very satisfying.

My role is to assist and advise in delivering an efficient, responsive and people-centred HR service to all BHT teams, candidates and volunteers.
