Hi I’m Sasha. I work as independent HR consultant supporting Particular Legal’s clients when they need employment law and people management advice.

I get some very strange looks when I say I always knew I wanted to work in HR, but it’s true. I gained my BA Hons in Human Resources Management at Teesside University and I’ve never looked back. I started my HR career at Lehman Brothers in the City. Clearly the streets are paved with gold in London so I stayed for 15 years. I held head of HR function roles for Renault and Toshiba and started up HR functions for smaller companies. I quickly found that my preference was to use my blue chip experience and adapt it to smaller businesses. Working with business owners and their senior management team allows me to add immediate value to the business. It’s a win / win situation; whether I’m providing HR advice to avoid employment tribunal claims (I’ve only had three in 23 years and we won them all) or improving productivity through improved people engagement.

When I’m not wearing HR red cape, I’m running around after my young son. Who knew how many activities and clubs one child could belong to! I also love baking and seem to have acquired the title of chief cake maker amongst family and friends. I’ve discovered fitness and exercise later in life and I’m a complete convert. Running and weights are my favourites at the moment. I live by the mantra of ‘work hard and play hard’ – something which has served me well so far!
