Caitlin Grigsby (She/Her)
Director, Principal Consultant
Full Circle HR & Business Services is, in many ways, the culmination of a 15 year journey for Caitlin, marked by professional successes and personal passions. In her career, she’s worked consistently in a variety of roles across the HR, industrial relations, organisational development, and governance spheres. Meanwhile, she’s been an active volunteer and advocate in her community, founding and taking on leadership roles in a host of organisations. Full Circle developed out of the range of skills, experiences, relationships, and commitment to service that have defined Caitlin’s life for the past 15 years.
While pursuing her Bachelor of Business (HR) at Monash University, Caitlin and her colleague Sarah Lawless launched the Blue Stockings Association to help create educational opportunities for women, especially from rural areas. Upon earning her degree, she dove into a nearly 8 year HR/IR and management career that spanned government, recruitment, and industry.
In 2015, Caitlin shifted gears to bring her working life closer into line with her personal values and strong sense of community. As she worked in a variety of long-term and contract engagements across organisations, sporting clubs, community support services, mediation engagements, and consulting stints with local businesses, Full Circle was born with a mission to provide world-class HR, organisational development, governance, and business support to SMEs, not-for-profits, and community organisations across Gippsland and beyond.
Over the years, Caitlin’s commitment to service has remained a constant. She has served as the President and Chair of the Gippsland Ranges Roller Derby Club, President and Co-Founder of the Gippsland Pride Initiative Inc., and served as a key member of the Traralgon Districts & Agricultural Society’s #savetheshow campaign.
