Meet the 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.

Lyn Bertolini

HR Advisor

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.

Ben Cox

HR Systems Data Officer

Working for BHT is an absolute pleasure. Having worked in ‘rather’ corporate environments in the past, BHT has been a breath of fresh air.

The fact that BHT is a company that helps people was a massive attraction for me. Homelessness and Mental Health has been such a big subject in the UK recently and to be part of something which aims to tackle these issues encourages me massively.

BHT has been incredibly supportive in my own career progression and will always encourage me to use our Learning and Development facilities to better myself. Outside of work I enjoy playing music in various bands.
