I'm Rachel, a freelance HR consultant based on the Bucks/Oxon border working with small to medium sized businesses within Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire.


With an HR career spanning 18 years working 'in-house' with various sized businesses ranging from SME's, Charity/Not for Profit through to large international Corporates. I have a diverse range of industry experience from consumer goods, health and leisure, services, to oil and aviation. My background and experience means I have gained vast knowledge across the entire employee lifecycle. 

I truly believe that people are a business's greatest asset. If you look after your people, they will look after your business, and so Practical People Solutions (aka PPS-HR) was founded to provide trusted, reliable, honest, expert HR advice and valued support to local businesses. Those values are centred on providing practical, pragmatic but commercial people solutions tailored to the needs of your business.
