Work is People

Rachel Fisher recorded on 22/04/2022

Rachel Fisher was born in Leeds and had lived in here (other than the odd excursion away) up until February 2022. Now she’s living and working in Malta, where she says it’s beautiful but, she’s “missing Yorkshire puddings and a post-work pint of Kirkstall Brewery’s Virtuous.”

Rachel is working as a HR Business Partner in the iGaming (online gambling) industry. She helps to create and bring an organisation's people strategy/agenda to life.

Rachel says, “HR still has a bit of a reputation of being the grim reaper or a jobsworth profession but, that's absolutely not the case!” she’s been in the business of all things 'people' for about 8/9 years and she’s seen everything from the utterly weird to the fabulous and wonderful along the way.”

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
