Samantha Betts

Assistant Director HR and OD, Salford City Council

Profile

Sam came to work in Salford over 20 years ago straight after graduating from Salford University and never left – that’s what Salford does to you! During that time she has held various Human Resources & Organisational Development roles working across the organisation before being appointed as the Assistant Director for HR & OD in 2015.

Sam says that Salford is people centred and values based which aligns with her personal view that organisations only exist because of people – the single most important part of any organisation are people!  As a HR & OD practitioner she has worked across the full range of HR & OD disciplines, and lead the development and delivery of the workforce development strategies and activities to support public service reform, transformation and service redesign across the city – leading the way to make Salford a great place to work.  She is passionate about co-design with people and also naturally curious so she doesn’t think you should ever stop listening, learning, sharing ideas and new ways of doing things.
