Siobhan has worked in this field for over nine years. She has developed her skills as an EA to ensure that she is an integral contributor to the productivity and effectiveness of the business. Understanding her role as that of a true thought partner, she enables the individuals that she supports to balance a multitude of obligations, recognising the essential benefits of anticipation and initiative as their gatekeeper.

The collaborative nature of Hedley May allows Siobhan to feel valued and integral to the firm’s success. Encouraged to put forward initiatives and ideas, Siobhan also thrives in a culture that pushes her outside her comfort zone.

Siobhan took up cold water swimming during the pandemic. It has instilled a sense of courage and confidence, which has helped serve her in her working role.

Our People

Hedley May is the power of its people. We work hard to create a culture in which everyone feels valued, are supported to thrive, and can live the values we believe in. We know the search for great people is driven by great people.

The Belonging Project

In January 2020, we launched the Belonging Project, conducting over 100 interviews globally with a diverse range of people. Our research reaffirmed our core belief: organizations that create a strong sense of Belonging are more successful – in business, employee satisfaction and longevity. Belonging is the proven cornerstone of success.


When we founded Hedley May, we made a commitment to make a positive impact on our broader communities. We focus on providing opportunity to the underserved through mentorship, internships, workshops and other career development initiatives. We are also dedicated advocates and supporters of numerous social mobility programs.
