Gemma Margetts

People Manager (Culture, EDI & Wellbeing)
Gemma Margretts

My role at Torchbox is super varied but simply put, I make sure that our HR function is operating smoothly - covering recruitment, onboarding, line management support, learning and development, wellbeing and payroll.

I have been lucky to experience HR in a variety of different industry's - publishing, marine consultancy, construction and now tech!

I love working with people. Everyone is so interesting and unique, it makes collaborating on projects really enjoyable when we all have a different approach. I love supporting people whether that's helping a manager grow in confidence, supporting someone with their wellbeing or helping a new starter settle into the company.

I love being outdoors, walking with my family and dog and getting out and about in the countryside on adventures. I also love reading and try to read one new book a month. Life is hectic with a young family so that's quite an achievement for me!
