"Victoria has managed several HR projects for Elsoms over the last 18 months. I have found her to be proactive and engaging and the projects have been planned and executed well. She has shown a keen interest in our business and long term aims and is an enthusiastic advocate for how HR can help deliver our business goals. Victoria’s great strength has been her ability to work with colleagues at all levels of the business on projects varying from operational to strategic in their nature. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent project manager and HR consultant."

What is HR?

Like all professions, HR has changed and adapted over the years.

We can be reactive problem solvers but where we can really add value is by demonstrating a clear business focus and getting proactively involved with your organization. We believe the HR profession is there for 2 reasons; to help organizations create and maintain the right human environment for us all to be successful at work and secondly to proactively challenge and support business leaders, managers and employees.
