Helen has worked in a range of HR roles in higher education for over 25 years, including leading the HR function at the University of Sussex. She has combined HR consultancy projects with running Universities HR (UHR), the higher education sector’s  professional association for people management, since 2004. As its Executive Director, she leads the organisation and works closely with other professional associations within and beyond higher education, and with the CIPD, of which she is a Chartered Fellow. She is committed to cross-sector working and learning in the public services, including through the MoU signed earlier this year between HPMA, PPMA, UHR and the CIPD. She has also worked in the NHS and the private and not for profit sectors. Helen is a magistrate, and has a History degree from Cambridge.
