Sally Sets Up The HR Dept Salisbury and Andover

After a career which has taken her across the world, Sally has returned home from her travels to set up The HR Dept Salisbury and Andover.

Varied roles have included overseas postings in the US and Germany while working for a company headquartered in Amesbury, as well as positions covering the South of England from Essex to Cornwall.

Sally feels her knowledge of the business world at home and abroad, alongside her 25 years HR experience will allow her to provide practical and relevant support for the under-represented smaller business community.

Prior to launching her own business, Sally’s 25-year career has seen her working in HR roles across a variety of industries including retail, financial services, food and beverage, automotive and aviation. She is CIPD qualified, an accredited Insight Discovery trainer and an experienced coach.

Sally is enjoying the new challenge of running her own business, which is something she’s thought of doing for some time but hasn’t had the opportunity to do so until now.

She feels that having her own outsourced HR business in Salisbury and Andover very much allows her to give back to the community whilst doing it on her own terms which she feels is best for her future clients and business. Plus, Sally explains, it affords her greater flexibility, lends support to her caring responsibilities and generally puts the fun back into HR.

“It has been a daunting journey but the team at The HR Dept have been incredibly supportive, so I am feeling pretty comfortable and genuinely really excited,” said Sally.

With Sally’s experience with large corporates, SMEs and start-ups, she is now looking forward to fully immersing herself in the local small business community and the issues they commonly face. We can’t wait to see her grow from strength to strength!
