cropped-pictureKim is a HR and Development Specialist based near Tenbury Wells covering Worcestershire, Herefordshire and the Shropshire border.  Having worked in HR in public and private sector organisations for the last 20 years, 2016 was to be the year to create Different HR Ltd.

Over the years having witnessed the incredible benefits of helping managers develop the skills they need for this challenging job has been a pleasure and something Kim is very proud of.   This not only reaps massive benefits for the manager, but also their team, their manager, the business, productivity, retention, employee satisfaction… you get the gist! Are you familiar with the phrase “people leave their managers not their company”, it’s so true! Different HR wants to help change this.

Kim’s aim is to share her knowledge and skills gathered from her experiences within retail, the Fire Service, local Government, higher education, aerospace supply chain and cloud based software business to benefit YOU. Whether you are a business, an aspiring manager or a HR professional who needs some help in today’s demanding world of people management, Kim can improve your working life and life at work!


Graduating in 2002 with a First Class Honours degree in Human Resource Management, Kim also became CIPD qualified (to what’s known as Level 7 now). Since then Kim has taken her own development seriously to keep her knowledge up to date.

In 2015, Kim qualified as a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner. This means she is able to practice in NLP commonly referred to as mindfulness techniques. This can bring a world of benefits to your life from addressing anxieties and fears to achieving confidence and improved communication to enhance your interactions with others. A skill that has enhanced how Kim approaches her role.

Different HR aims to make a difference TO OUR CLIENTS through our values:

  • We feel strongly about doing the right thing as well as doing things right
  • Behaving at all times in a fair and ethical way balancing business needs with individuals
  • Acting at all times with regard to the rights and legal obligations of either party
  • Enable organisations we support to maintain a reputation built on credibility, integrity and reliability – integral to Different HR
  • Confidentiality is assured
  • Empowering others in all we do to lead happier more fulfilled lives at work – we aim to upskill those we work with

Beyond her interest in helping others believe in themselves and reach their potential, Kim enjoys nothing more than spending time walking her dog with her husband.  With inexpensive tastes, her favourite chocolate being Cadbury’s.  An animal lover, Kim enjoys travelling to new places, shopping and is fascinated by Bletchley Park.  Her guilty pleasure when time allows is back to back episodes of 24 or Friends depending on whether the mood calls for action or comedy!
