In Memory of

Janet Haffegee 03 (1)

Janet Haffegee

Janet was one of our longest serving members of the HR team, and undoubtedly one of the most committed, professional and able. She was the cornerstone of the HR Operations team for nearly twenty years.  More importantly, Janet was also a wonderful, generous individual who provided tremendous personal and professional support to her colleagues over many years.  We will all feel her loss as tremendously, but she will be remembered with warmth and affection by her friends and colleagues, and will be sorely missed by all of us.

Jane Goring

As one of the longer serving members of the HR team, I was lucky enough to have known and worked with Janet since she started at York nearly 18 years ago.  Starting back in the early days when we were upstairs in the attic of Heslington Hall – her office was next door to …

It’s taken some time for me to find the right words to say, and lossing Janet still doesn’t quite feel real. In the 10 years or so I worked with her, Janet was, as other colleagues have said, the ‘go to’ person for a great number of things and was never too busy to …

Jane Grenville

I have only just heard of Janet’s death and am reeling with shock at the news. She was always such a calm and gentle presence ‘downstairs’, and always ready to help with her exhaustive knowledge, both of the University and of employment law. But more than that – a quiet and empathetic soul with …

I will miss Janet so much.  Janet recruited me 5 years ago to my first HR role in higher education and I couldn’t have hoped for a more kind, patient and knowledgeable colleague.  We worked closely together almost every day since then and Janet quickly became a source of expertise, a pragmatic sounding board …

Janet was so kind to me when I returned to work and was one of the people who helped me settle back into things, helping me along in meetings we went to together.  She was so knowledgable and was always happy to help, support and share what she knew with others. Janet was such …

It’s taken me a while to process the news of Janet’s passing.  I first met Janet when she came for her interview at the University, and she became my manager for a number of years.  Janet was incredibly kind and caring and brought her humanity and compassion into her work, never losing sight of …

Rob and Tash, Janet was taken from this world far too soon and she will be missed greatly by so many of us who had the pleasure of knowing her. For the 12 years I have worked with Janet she has has been a constant source of knowledge and expertise for me. On many …

Iona Rodger

It has taken a little while to write this – I’ve found it very hard to take in Janet’s passing. Janet was a dedicated and professional work colleague but beyond that she was such a kind and lovely human being. She always checked in with you to see how you were feeling and she …

  It was a real pleasure to work with Janet and get to know her over the last 5 years. She was an incredible person, principled, knowledgeable and a genuine role model to many of us. I already miss being able to seek her guidance and her wicked dry sense of humour – a roll …

Corrine Howie

I feel so blessed to have had Janet in my live since first working with her in HR 15 years ago. In her work she was the consummate professional. If I needed someone to sense check an idea I could always rely on Janet to share her time and knowledge, always giving calm and …
