Lynne McBurney, Group Head of People, Arnold Clark
Lynne joined Arnold Clark over 13 years ago as an HR advisor. This role was multi-site covering the whole of the UK and she knew she would enjoy this far more than her previous, office-based roles. As the work of the department and its credibility increased along with the size of the organisation, the HR team grew and as such Lynne had opportunities to be promoted to Senior HR Advisor, HR Operations Manager, Group HR Manager and her current role as Group Head of People – a role which encompasses management of the People Team, Recruitment, Early Careers, Think Employee, Payroll, as well as Health and Safety functions. Lynne’s overriding objective is to create a culture at Arnold Clark where people choose to come and work and want to dedicate themselves to the organisation’s success. She was delighted to have been awarded the Rising Star title at this year’s Diversity Awards for her work in making Arnold Clark an inclusive and supportive workplace.
