Lauren Bridger

Human Resources Manager

Get to know me...

I joined Goughs in February 2012 having previously spent five years working in accounts for a global insurance company.

I became an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in 2016 having completed the Level 3 Diploma in Human Resource Practice.

I undertake a very broad HR role within the firm, with a particular focus on working closely with the partners in attracting and selecting the right people to meet the firm’s strategic objectives. I also work closely with other members of the HR team on developing key processes to enhance the performance of the firm and make Goughs a positive, supportive working environment.

My greatest achievement

Professionally, I would say this is completing my CIPD qualification whilst working full time.

I am extremely proud of Goughs being named in The Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2024.

What I like about working for Goughs

It’s great to work at a firm where there is an ‘open-door’ policy and everyone is so approachable. I also enjoy the variety of work I do and getting to experience the many different parts of life in HR; no two days are ever the same!
