My highlight of being in The Network is looking back at what we've created over the years. I've tried to create a business that I would like to be employed by and that's what's really special!"

March 2024, Our Largest Induction Yet…

On March 25th 2024, we were joined by four HR professionals ready to dive into three days of knowledge sharing, networking, and plenty of food. This marked our largest induction yet!

With our March cohort now settling into life as an HR Dept licensee, we thought it would be a great time to introduce them…

Charlotte Sherratt launched The HR Dept Coventry Central on 1st April 2024. Despite being new to business ownership, Charlotte certainly wasn’t new to The HR Dept as she had previously been working for one of our licensees since 2019 before taking the plunge to take on her own territory.

Ryan Gay became the new owner of The HR Dept Exeter on 1st May after Belinda passed the baton of her well-established business in the South West. Like Charlotte, Ryan is also familiar with much of the network as he previously worked as HR Manager for The HR Dept Bristol, Bath and North Somerset over five years ago.

Heather Crammond launched The HR Dept Carlisle & Morecambe on 1st May 2024. With over 20 years of generalist HR experience, Heather left the corporate world at the end of 2023 and is ready to reap the benefits of being her own boss.

Lisa Ironside became the fourth licensee to join our March induction and launched The HR Dept Aberdeenshire on 1st May 2024. After setting up her own independent consultancy offering practical expertise in inclusion, diversity and belonging, Lisa has joined the franchise to expand her business offering and be part of our wonderful network of HR professionals.

It’s been wonderful to see the collaboration between our latest licensees and we look forward to watching their businesses grow from strength to strength in the coming years.
