Lesley Strachan

People Director

07738 480260


With over 20 years working as an HR Director, Lesley has spent much of her time in SME’s starting HR departments from scratch.


Lesley has some big brand names under her belt too, including Porsche Cars (GB) Ltd and Chelsea FC plc, the common theme has always been entrepreneurial organisations looking for pragmatic strategies for their business needs.

Collaborating with business leaders to develop an employer brand, organisational structure and talent development activities to support the business plan for the future is the sweet spot of her portfolio of expertise. Her experiences span a number of industries including media, digital, professional services, sport, retail, arts & leisure both in the UK and abroad.

Lesley’s grass roots experience has been complemented with a full FCIPD qualification and she also has an MBA. She likes some theory, but loves working in the real thing where she can also tap into her 7 years of non-HR experience in sales and customer service.

She is a highly committed, hard-working and dedicated to her employer and HR – a real professional. Lesley takes a rigorous approach to her work; she finds creative ways to solve the challenging HR problems I presented her with on numerous occasions and dealt with them to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
