Since joining Maurice Blackburn in 2008, Alicia has played a central role in the significant and successful growth in staff numbers and new offices across the firm.
“I enjoy being part of a firm that fights for the rights of everyday people; and through my work within the HR team, I know that I’m contributing to the amazing outcomes that our talented lawyers achieve for our clients every day,” says Alicia.
As a senior human resources professional, Alicia has significant skills across a range of operational and strategic specialties including recruitment, management and leadership, remuneration strategy, performance management, employment law, policy and process development, and workforce planning.
A large part of Alicia’s strategic emphasis is on ensuring the firm’s EBA and national policies work to provide consistent benefits and rewards for all employees. Alicia is also focussed on the development of the firm’s present and future leaders, and working to ensure consistency in management approach.
Alicia started her career working in legal support, and was drawn to human resources by a desire to engage with and contribute to people’s personal and professional development. She finds a great deal of reward in seeing people she recruited as graduate lawyers now leading offices and becoming future leaders of the firm.
Alicia is currently on parental leave.
