Valerie Smithers

Associate, HR, Executive Manager

Making Metec great since 2015! I'm the one behind the scenes making sure that Metec runs smoothly. When I joined Metec as Accounts & Administration Manager, there were only 16 employees in the company. Since then, I have become HR/Executive Manager, helping to build an inclusive and diverse workforce. #TeamMetec

When I’m not managing accounts I’m involved in hire, we have gone from 16 to over 50 employees, I've been part of this journey recruiting new team members from diverse backgrounds, successfully bringing in fresh expertise and experience from across Europe, the USA, India, Egypt and Brazil.

From account management & HR I also love to organise our company’s social events, I love being a part of bringing people together to create unforgettable experiences. I'm your go-to person for all your needs. #TeamBuilding #Recruiting #Diversity

Who am I?

Dublin-born, Wicklow-based. Lover of the outdoors. Outside of work I am passionate about traveling, rowing & exploring the great outdoors. I love pushing myself to the limits. When I'm not managing accounts, you can find me exploring the great outdoors with my three amazing kids, husband Anthony and our dog Bobby. When I'm not exploring new places, I'm volunteering with the Wicklow RNLI as crew. Life is an adventure and I'm living it to the fullest. #familytime #adventurer #lifeboatcrew
