Zhanna Klapysheva

Executive, People & Training

BA (Hons)

My Russian and Ukrainian family background inspired my love for languages, cultures and people in general. These interests led me to study for a degree in Hospitality, moving countries and learning four different languages along the way. When I first arrived in Manchester in 2016, I worked for a recruitment agency and it was there that I realised I wanted to pursue a career in Human Resources. Studying HR and Training helped to shape my view on what good HR management really means; it should above all help people learn, develop and become better professionals.

In May 2021 I joined Castlefield, where I'm fortunate to work with lots of like-minded people. Part of my job involves helping to create an environment for co-owners to grow professionally and to express their views, which enables us all to work for a company that strives to make a real difference. Outside of work, I love long walks with my dog, painting and spending time with friends and family.
