International Womens Day 2021

Today we celebrate #InternationalWomensDay and all the unique women that contribute to Telestack’s success.

In the Spotlight, this year is our HR & Development Officer - Kathleen Conroy 

When did you start with Telestack?


Has your role diversified?

I started as an HR/Payroll Admin and I truly thrived in the HR aspect. I have a passion for helping others reach their potential and I am now specialised in Learning & Development. Supported by Telestack, I have now completed my CIPD Level 5 in Human Resource Management and I am currently working towards my CIPD Level 7 in Strategic People Management.  

Was HR your chosen career path?

Actually no, I started out in Accountancy and after much soul-searching, I finally had the courage 5 years in to admit that it wasn’t for me as it didn’t align with who I was.

What made you apply for a role in Telestack?

I come from a family of Engineers so I guess in a way I was naturally drawn to Telestack as I had spent so much of my younger years accompanying my father to quarries so all things conveyors, crushing and screening was somewhat in my DNA. I can safely say that it was the best decision that I have ever made!

What do you love most about working at Telestack?

My favourite motto is “every day is a learning day” and this could not be any truer than here in Telestack! I am immersed in industry best practice and am exposed to aspects within every department throughout the operation and I have to say that I love the variety. I know it’s a cliché but no two days are the same! I have a great range of mentors across many different departments who I learn from on a daily basis.  

What are your long term goals?

My long-term passion is within Learning and Development and I am a big believer that you should never stop learning – both personally and professionally! Telestack has given me a platform to understand our business from every aspect – way beyond what is traditionally considered HR. Yes HR can be stressful and hectic at times but I am eternally grateful that I listened to my “gut-feeling” and pursued a career in HR. I simply love what I do!”


This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge and it urges us all to be responsible for our own thoughts and actions!

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias, inequality and to question stereotypes! Collectively, let’s help forge a better world.
