New HR consultancy sets up in Warwickshire

A NEW human resources consultancy has started trading in the region, targeting smaller businesses looking to access their own personal HR expert without the overheads of dedicated in-house staff.

LRM HR Consultancy was set-up by Liz Rogers-Mills after receiving free business advice and guidance from Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce.

After over 30 years’ working in human resources, operating in private and public sectors, Ms Rogers-Mills decided it was time to set up her own consultancy.

A fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, she said: “I wanted to come out of the corporate world and work with more small to medium size businesses, offering a personal service to them and tailoring it to their needs.

“The chamber were very supportive. The workshops helped give an overview of all the things I needed to think about as a new business owner, as well as helping me prioritise.”

Ms Rogers-Mills, who attended the University of Warwick, is working with start-ups, growing companies and established organisations across the region.

One of her earliest clients has been Dough and Brew – a new restaurant in Warwick specialising in sourdough pizza.

She is now focused on expanding her client list as the New Year progresses.

Margaret Bull, a business advisor at the chamber of commerce, said: “It has been fantastic to help Liz take the next step in developing her business.

“She already had a good knowledge of what she wanted to achieve and it was just a case of pointing her in the right direction – it was a pleasure to work with her and I look forward to hearing how her business continues to develop.”
