I work as a virtual HR Director and leadership expert for UK Tech Startups, Creatives & forward-thinking Charities, with between 1 and 300 employees.
My modern approach to HR is hugely popular. I balance the commercial elements of your business with the human approach to help you build a loyal and productive team, and achieve growth, change or cost-savings.

Here's what you can expect when we work together:
A TRUSTED EXPERT
I have a Masters in HR Management, a degree in Business Studies and I'm fellows accredited by the CIPD (which is the highest HR level you can get).
I've worked with a number of incredible Entrepreneurs, Tech Companies and Charities, as well as being the HR Director for Pearson Technology and Argos. And I've published a book on how to hire your first employee.
During my career I've done everything from innovative induction programmes through to complex redundancies plans.
But what you really need to know about me is that I'm honest, trustworthy and loyal. I give 100% to my clients and pride myself on offering integrity and confidentiality.
DEDICATED HR SUPPORT
Unlike other HR Consultancies, I'll be your dedicated HR Partner. YOU come first and I'll go above and beyond to help you achieve your goals. When we work together, I really get to know you and your business. We discuss who your best performers are, what's worrying you and what's blocking your success.
My aim is to make your life easier by taking all the scary, overwhelming HR stuff off your plate (like creating and sending contracts, HR policy updates, pension stuff, staff letters. etc) but also help you achieve your vision and goals faster.
When we work together, you only work with me. You don't have to explain your business every time you call or deal with a call centre full of HR graduates, without any real world experience.
MODERN & INNOVATIVE
I'm not your old-school Personnel Manager. My modern approach to HR is about helping you achieve your business goals through your team. It's the art of balancing the commercial side with data and treating people like humans and creating a great place to work. I use the principles of neuroscience to understand what makes people tick and either engage positively or resist change.
My clients love my innovative ideas to attract the best people to work for them and boost team performance. Plus, things like swapping boring Employee Handbooks for personalised Culture Books.
FLEXIBLE, AFFORDABLE & CONVENIENT
Finally, you get full flexibility. I work on a pay as you go basis, so there are no lengthy contracts which force you to work with me for 12 months+.
I only want us to work together for as long as it benefits you and your business. And we review it every quarter and flex the hours as needed to suit you.
