Magdalena Quinlan has worked in the field of Human Resources since 1998 in a variety of business settings including small family business, large government bodies, start-ups and and publicly listed multinational corporations. She is experienced in supporting a diverse range of occupations and industries ranging from blue collar manufacturing and trade roles to senior executive/ CEO’s.
During her time as an HR Professional, Magdalena has played a lead role in problem solving a variety of individual, team and organisation issues ranging from culture overhauls, teamwork issues, company restructures, enterprise bargaining and leadership development programs. She is a pragmatic thinker and prides herself on her no-fuss, straightforward approach.
Since moving from Sydney to the Central Coast in 2013, Magdalena realised an opportunity to apply her skills and experience to help small business with their HR needs. After speaking with many small business owners and hearing their stories, she recognised that it wasn’t easy to hire ad-hoc, by-the-hour human resource expertise, and consequently founded iQhr in 2019 to fill this need.
Magdalena has a Bachelors Degree in Strategic Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations and Political Science from the University of New South Wales. She is also a qualified workplace trainer and delivers workshops and leadership sessions across Australia. At present she is honing her skills in diversity and inclusion initiatives to help business unleash new ways of thinking and operating, whilst retaining and engaging top talent.
In addition, Magdalena is the mother of two wonderful children, moving to the Central Coast with husband Matthew to enjoy the beautiful coastal lifestyle on offer.
She is an avid gardener and has slowly transformed their acreage into a paradise for her family.
