Providing HR support and advice to SME across the Thames Valley since 2006
Rebecca Woolmington launched HRCentral in 2006. Prior to starting this reputable generalist HR consultancy business, Rebecca spent many years rapidly progressing and developing in the HR world.
A highly qualified and accomplished HR Consultant with over 20 years’ experience, Rebecca has successfully managed and grown HRCentral. Her experienced and talented team of Associates fully support HRCentral’s SME clients – most of whom have been with her for many years – with all their HR related issues.
Before establishing HRCentral, Rebecca’s last employed position was as Senior HR Manager/Business Partner at Foster Wheeler Energy Limited, now known as Amec Foster Wheeler. Whilst there, she was responsible for operational and strategic initiatives.
Rebecca invests considerable time and effort into ensuring that HRCentral’s clients receive the best service. Clients benefit from pragmatic and current HR advice, ensuring that their HR processes are both right for their business and legally compliant.
This focus on expert customer support has earnt HRCentral the reputation of trusted provider of HR generalist advice.
On a personal level, Rebecca lives in Oxfordshire with her family and her gorgeous Whippet, named Blue, who was recently promoted to ‘Head of Barketing and Wellbeing’, ensuring that Rebecca (or one of her team) get to exercise daily.
Laura joined HRCentral in March 2020 as a fellow HR Consultant to provide considered, relevant and bespoke advice to our clients.
As a driven, conscientious and engaging HR Professional she will quickly understand your needs and provide sound counsel whilst working tirelessly to deliver an HR solution that fits your business. Calm and focussed, she is guaranteed to put you at ease with her practical approach.
With 15 years’ experience in HR, predominately in Hospitality, she quickly rose through the ranks and most recently held the position of HR Business Partner. In this role she supported several well-known Hospitality brands and has worked with some famous and Michelin starred chefs along the way.
She has vast experience of working on complex employee relations issues and is equally knowledgeable in the areas of change management and talent management. She is also a keen trainer and can deliver customised development opportunities for your team.
In her spare time Laura is an avid reader, an obsessive foodie and cook and a lover of music. She is also by her own admission: “The worst player of golf in existence!” Yet she perseveres nonetheless and thoroughly enjoys being on the course.
