Rhian moved from her seaside hometown of Aberdyfi to the bright lights of Birmingham in 2010 and joined Aspire Business Partnership in July 2013, having graduated with a First in Tourism and Business Management from the University College Birmingham. 

Rhian’s experience in gaining her degree provided an excellent grounding for the research and reporting involved in her role with Aspire, particularly in the aspects of employment law, contracting and compliance reviews. Rhian specialises in advising clients on all things construction, namely the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), the CITB Levy, Gross Payment Status applications/revocations and employment status.  

As well as being the 'Social Sec' for the Aspire team, Rhian has completed the CIPD Level 3 Certificate in HR Practice and the CIPD Level 5 Award in Employment Law, making her an Associate Member of the CIPD.  She advises Aspire's clients on a wide range of HR issues, including the complexities of HR in temporary labour supply chains.  

In June 2016, Rhian was awarded with a Certificate of Continuing Professional Development in Investigating Modern Slavery. The course was delivered and accredited by the Gangmasters Licensing Authority working in partnership with the University of Derby. This enables Rhian to advise large businesses on their obligations under the Modern Slavery Act, in particular the production of a Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement. 

Rhian is fluent in welsh and, although this doesn't come in handy very often, upon request she can pronounce the name of the Welsh village with the longest name in Britain!
