Director & Co-Founder
Why I Do My JobHR is far from glamorous and often means we’re dealing with the stuff no one else wants to, but in most scenarios we’re helping someone solve a problem, and when you are dealing directly with the business owners who have grown their business from scratch there is nothing more satisfying. We’re also educating and improving how staff are managed which is really rewarding and fascinating when you see the turn around.
What I did beforeBefore deciding to start my own business I worked in HR within both the defence and pharmaceutical manufacturing sectors. I have done most HR roles in my time from specialist roles like training and development, or graduate assessment and recruitment, to more generalist roles, like being a stand alone HR Manager at a North Devon factory responsible for the full remit of HR. The variety generalist HR advisory positions give, has always been the attraction for me.
What keeps me going when things get toughGin mostly, but aside from that having a laugh with clients and colleagues about the mad things that people still do at work expecting not to get caught. My family who constantly remind me that actually other things are more important and I don’t have to be attached to my emails every second of the day. My business partner who is my opposite in so many ways yet scarily similar in others but always at the end of the phone when I need a really good rant.
Kirsty's wealth of knowledge and experience within the field of HR was evident from our initial conversations. She is approachable and willing to share her expertise in order to enhance the performance and productivity of others and is obviously passionate about the focus of her work. I have been consistently impressed by her thorough and diligent approach.
