Hello I’m Sharon and thanks for taking an interest in me and my team. I am a self-motivated individual with a desire to succeed in everything I do. I have over 25 years’ experience working within HR with a vast knowledge of both HR Strategy and Leadership. I hold a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management as well as being a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). As the Managing Director at The HR Experts (UK) Ltd I do my utmost every day to help and enable my wonderful team to provide an exceptional HR service for our clients. In my spare time (there isn’t much of it I have to say!!!!) I love to travel, compete in dance competitions and socialise. My motto in business is to always under promise and over deliver!!!

Emily Oxford

Hi, I’m Emily, My interest in HR comes from my belief that people can be a valuable asset to a company but also that they can be the trickiest part to manage. I qualified in Human Resource Management from University in 2009 and have worked in various sectors including the Police Service, Hospitality and Manufacturing. In the office I am known for always having a list and being organised with a love for a good spreadsheet or system! I like a challenge and work hard to meet and exceed any objectives or tasks that come my way.

Carol Barker

Hi, I’m Carol, and I’ve been a part of the HRX team since 2016. I have a targeted interest and knowledge in supporting small and medium sized enterprises with the complexities of HR and employment law, helping them to balance risk and achieve their desired outcomes. Having qualified to CIPD Level 7 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resource Management, I’ve worked with SME’s in healthcare, construction, real estate, and IT, putting my attention for detail into practice to provide reassurance and guidance to line managers, and employing my passion for the role of HR in supporting employee engagement. Within our team, I’m often called upon as the ‘walking thesaurus’ to help with all things wordy! Outside of work, I’m a big explorer and love taking trips to the Peak District and climbing up rocks.

Rebecca Vardy

Hey there, I’m Rebecca. I have worked in a generalist HR role for over 9 years with a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management. Growing up I had a natural inclination to organise; whether that be planning games, or ensuring everything was in place for group success. I pride myself in achieving a high standard, and enjoy working in an environment with people who are as dedicated to succeed as myself. I have vast experience in different sectors and strive to develop personable working relationships with all my Clients to enable me to offer the best support bespoke to them.

Our HR Administration Experts

Liz Gray

Hi, I’m Liz. I joined The HR Experts in 2008 in the administration department. I love the different areas my job covers; from the accounting side to the HR admin side providing support to all our HR advisors. It’s a great varied position and as they say ‘variety is the spice of life!’ I’m a stickler for perfection and take pride in everything I do. Outside of work I love spending time with my family and children, taking my dog Mabel for walks and anything crafty!
