Jackie McMahon, Head of Talent Management & Talent Acquisition, ABB UK/IE
A HR professional for 20 years, followed the CIPD path working as a HR Generalist in various sectors, in public and private sector organisations. She now works for a global engineering company, more lately specialising in Talent Acquisition and Talent Management. With this exposure to a global organisation, came opportunity for many change management initiatives and the implementation of several organisational change projects which have changed the HR operating model firstly to a shared service model, then to the set up of a Global Business Hub in Krakow to support HR transactional activities.
Studied for a Masters Degree at LJM in Strategic Human Resources, which inspired her to specialise in Talent Management.
Passions include career development and developing a learning culture in organisations to nurture and retain the best talent. This has involved the use of apprenticeships to develop HR and Talent Acquisition skills, which has proved highly successful.
