As Liquid Friday celebrates 11 years of operations, we catch up with one of our longest serving members of staff, Lara Biggs, Liquid Friday’s HR Manager. She is our ultimate people person!
While the Head Office team concentrates on looking after our workers and agency clients, it’s up to Lara to look after the team; ensuring they have all the resources, knowledge and support they need to do a great job and keep Liquid Friday flowing – and growing!
How long have you been at Liquid Friday?
I’ve been with Liquid Friday for 8 and a half years now – I’m a Liquid Friday veteran!
Tell us a bit about your role
I started off at the company as the Office Manager and then after a few years moved on to manage the Customer Care team. When I returned from maternity leave after having my first child, I moved into the HR Department. In my current role as HR Manager for Liquid Friday, I’m responsible for welcoming new employees to the team, ensuring everyone has the training they require and keeping up to date with any changes in Employment Law, amongst other things.
In your view, what makes Liquid Friday stand out from the competition?
We genuinely care about the contractors we look after and our levels of customer service reflects this. All of our staff are committed to furthering themselves in their knowledge and doing the very best they can to help our customers.
What do you enjoy most about working at Liquid Friday?
What I enjoy most is the vibrant atmosphere – there’s never a dull moment. Above all, everyone is so friendly and it’s a joy to work here.
What do you do for fun / outside the office?
As mum to two children, I have my hands full! I love spending time with them, so lots of walks and getting muddy at farms!
What has been the biggest change in your time at Liquid Friday?
When I first started at Liquid Friday there were only three of us working out of a tiny office at the Technopole in Portsmouth. Since then the team have worked hard and gone from strength to strength. We’ve added many more members to the team and we are now based in a lovely location at Port Solent Marina. As we enter our twelfth year of business, we’re supporting thousands of contractors and hundreds of agencies and companies. Hopefully we’ll be here for many more years to come.
