Hayley Cross

Workplace Lead

Australia to Europe, education to workplace... Hayley has undoubtedly turned over every stone she could during her exciting & varied career opportunities.

There isn’t a whole lot that our caffeine-driven Workplace Lead, Hayley, hasn’t had the opportunity to be across in her career. Which doesn’t surprise us! Hayley has always had her sights set on new challenges, new ideas and new experiences.

With an in-depth understanding of how a project needs to be delivered, Hayley Cross leads the Melbourne team as our Head of Workplace. Hayley comes with over 20 years’ experience in large firms across both Australia and the UK, and has extensive knowledge dealing with various workplace & commercial experiences on projects as big as 80,000sqm.

Her strengths lie in the design development & delivery phases of a project, as well as administrative management of project delivery and creative engagement to ensure every project runs smoothly. Her ability to coordinate multiple consultants – inclusive of services, structural, and specialist suppliers – ensures projects run smoothly & efficiently for the best outcome.

In addition to her project input, Hayley is also busy imparting her knowledge and mentoring our team in various facets of each project. Championing informed design conversations, and currently undertaking her WELLS course, Hayley constantly strives to improve her own design thinking and everyone else’s at Hot Black.

When she’s not down at her local coffee shop, you’ll find Hayley enjoying a nice glass of vino with friends.
