I am the Director of HR services at Smith Cooper and am based in the firm’s Derby office. I am responsible for HR consultancy for the firm specialising in providing bespoke HR Advice and to support small to medium sized businesses.
What can I do for your organisation?
Smith Cooper’s HR service provides professional human resource management advice to all business sectors within the UK. We pride ourselves on providing business focused HR solutions that help you save time and improve the performance of your business.
I assist businesses in all aspects of HR including: the employment life cycle (recruitment to termination and everything in between). I build strong relationships with business owners and Directors based on trust and no-nonsense advice.
I graduated with a language degree and as a result, have worked in global businesses learning my HR craft. I am a Chartered member of the CIPD and whilst my early years of HR were spent in multinational businesses, since joining Smith Cooper in 2006 my experience has covered all sectors. As a consequence, I have a wealth of knowledge built up over nearly 40 years of HR practice.
I am passionate about what I do, and my main aim is to help establish and manage good working practices to support clients and their employees.
My particular expertise lies in conducting investigations, appeals and grievances on behalf of businesses who need an independent professional view.
I have always been a keen reader and enjoy gardening.
