Karen joined HR Solutions in February 2017 as an HR Advisor, working alongside our HR Consultants and providing end to end case support where required on the Advice Line Service.
In May 2017, Karen was promoted to Senior HR Advisor – Team Leader, to help look after the HR Advisor team, and HR Administrators. In November 2017, Karen was promoted to HR Knowledge Manager.
Originally starting her career training in customer services in Selfridges, Karen became preoccupied with HR practices and built a wealth of experience working for many household name fashion retailers when she lived and worked in London.
Since then she has gravitated back toward her hometown in the Midlands and has specialised in employment law supporting a vast array of business and industries.
Karen has worked for 7 years and counting on a consultancy basis, working directly with CEOs and directors on strategizing HR policy, dealing with employment relation issues and navigating through cases to minimise risk and achieve the most desirable outcome wherever possible!
Not being precious about her skills, Karen sometimes adapts her approach to support her friends and family too, most notably rolling up her sleeves to act as a representative during conciliation and achieving an award large enough, that her thank you gift was a short break in the sun!
Karen enjoys spending her weekends taking her dog on long walks with her fiancée and setting the world to rights with her closest friends, some nibbles and a glass of something nice.
