Michelle Burnett

Outline Your Experience

I have recently joined the People Management Solutions team as Associate Consultant.  Prior to this, I was employed in a range of HR roles up to Head of HR level across the private, public and 3rd sector.  Within these roles, I covered the full remit of HR activity from recruitment & selection, learning & development, employee relations and policy development as well as numerous HR projects and employee wellbeing initiatives.  I also have experience of supporting the work of a well-established NI charity at Trustee level.

I have a sound working knowledge of current employment law with recent experience supporting employers prepare for both GDPR and forthcoming mandatory Gender Pay Gap Reporting.  I hold full Chartered Membership of the CIPD, a Masters’ Degree in Human Resource Management and work hard to keep up to date with developments in the field of HR and employment law.

During my time in HR which spans 20 years, I have been involved in supporting organisations, line managers and staff achieve their goals through best practice HR.  I pride myself on a very approachable, solution focused style of working allowing me to develop sound relationships across all levels of the organisations I work with.  I have experience of supporting organisations work towards ISO and Investors in People accreditation as well as experience as an Assessor for the EFQM excellence awards.

When you’re not at work, where might we find you?

Outside of work, I’m a Mum of 2 rugby mad boys and balance a busy working week with Saturday mornings at the side of a pitch.  I’m at my happiest spending quality time with family and friends making the most of the beautiful beaches, walks and surroundings nearby to where I live on the North Coast.
