Sioned Eurig has been promoted to lead the employment team at Legal & Risk Services.
Having acted up into the role for the past 10 months, Sioned is able to continue as the NHS Legal & Risk Services employment team lead. She said:
“I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead the employment team at a time where the NHS is at the heart of all our communities.
“Our team within Legal & Risk Services, works hard to share good practices and to support improvements by offering training and working closely with our clients. We provide a service that is not only excellent value for money but also of an extremely high standard.
Sioned has worked as a specialist NHS employment lawyer since August 2012, and since then the team has grown and developed considerably. The award-winning team advises NHS HR clients on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment and discrimination law and helps with the development of All Wales policies and processes.
Daniela Mahapatra, Deputy Director, Legal & Risk Services said:
“Sioned’s promotion is well deserved, particularly following her leadership of the team during the pandemic. Sioned brings fresh ideas and supportive leadership to an already established team. I am sure that the team will continue to provide an excellent service to our colleagues across Wales. I wish Sioned and the team every success in this next exciting chapter.”
Sioned said she is ‘proud to lead a team of fantastic individuals’ and added:
“We have lots of plans and ideas that we hope to implement that will assist our clients and colleagues to make the NHS an even better place to work and an employer of choice.”
The employment team is recruiting in the near future as it continues to support and advise the NHS HR teams on employment law issues across Wales.
