Management

Susan Ellis-Hill

Chief Executive Officer

“h&h is a family business which was commenced by my husband, Ray Hill, and I in 1994. Ray recognised the need for an innovative approach to vocational training in our community; and using our proficiency and experience in business, we focused on the development of competencies in people from NESB and long-term unemployed backgrounds, developing skills that would lead to employment. My career has always been in a people orientated arena, having gained my degree in Human Resources in the mid-1980s, and working in recruitment for many years. During this period I had my own recruitment consultancy, and was on the board of various recruitment initiatives. I have a thorough understanding of career development needs, and have served on government committees that helped establish the training services being delivered in our community.”
