Hi, I am Sam. I look after the HR side of the business. I have had 25 fun years of experience in Human Resources and business. I am a senior HR professional who has worked at HR Director level with extensive international experience and I have enjoyed every moment of it, working in different countries and emersing myself in the different cultures.

I have a proven track record of leading and developing HR teams and ensuring they are aligned with strategic organisation needs to deliver tangible benefits. I ‘get’ the fundamentals of HR and how it joins up with the rest of the organisation, HR never stands alone when I am involved!

I get told I am a respected leader and collaborator, with a flair for quickly identifying, clarifying and articulating organisation requirements. The reality is, I just really understand what the business is trying to achieve through an in-depth knowledge of the business and work out what needs to be done from a people perspective to make it happen. I fully understand the fundamentals of hr and I enjoy putting hr at the heart of the organisations business strategy. I am certainly not afraid to question.

The areas of hr which I have a particular strength are board level hr (UK and internationally), major international hr development and transformation, mergers and acquisitions, tupe, mediation, compensation & benefits, recruitment and team development.

I set up call hr because I could see that organisations that did not have an hr department, for whatever reason, were getting a standard, off the shelf hr service. I believe that every company is different, and the support they receive for their business and their people should be aligned to what they are trying to achieve. That is what we do at call hr.

We are different, we take our time to get to know your business, and the team and to really understand the history of your company and your aims and ambitions. This enables us to always deliver a service you need and one that makes a difference.

Outside of work, I am a keen runner, and can regularly be found running 10km, half marathon or marathons. When I am not running, I will be taking walks with my husband and not forgetting my golden retriever ‘Frodo’, or catching up on all the wonderful books I keep buying! When I can find time, I enjoy a trip to the theatre to enjoy musicals or a play.

Hi, I’m Jo, and I look after the talent search and profiling side of the call hr businesses. My talent sourcing career has spanned over the last 10 years and I have worked within both large corporates to smaller niche companies where I have benefitted from a broad level of experience and extensive and ongoing training and self-improvement.

I have a particular strength and expertise in sourcing senior level and board level roles where I support you in finding the right candidate for your key role. I pride myself in being candidate focused and thrive on building long term relationships.

Hi, I am Shona. I am the People Support Manager here at call hr supporting businesses with the range of HR matters they may have.

I took a career in HR as I very much enjoy helping and developing people and seeing the satisfaction when someone is really enjoying their role. Building relationships and supporting our clients is important. Knowing people come off the phone, skype or leave a meeting they do walking away from a situation happy, and so the employee relation aspect of HR is my favourite!

There is one certain in my role that I really enjoy; I know every day I will learn something new about HR or human relationships!

call hr interested me specifically, due to the range of businesses they work with. call hr allows me to work on behalf of so many different companies, and view HR from a variety of perspectives - no day is the same for me, which I love!

Outside of work, I love holidays and discovering new and beautiful places to eat. I love writing, and when I have the time, I like to blog.

My motto in life is not to worry about something until it happens. I believe that great things live on the other side of fear and so I am always trying to push myself out of my ‘comfort zone’.

Hi I am Sophie. I am a People Support Manager here at call hr supporting the call hr clients and the call hr team with the range of HR projects that are always underway!

Having started my career in Recruitment I moved into HR about 10 years ago working in the technology and pharmaceutical sector in Cambridge. The type of companies range from global FTSE companies to supporting the start-ups that spin out of such businesses.
