We’ve appointed our third director to support the company’s fast expansion since inception in April 2015.
We have appointed Sarah Darbyshire from HR Solutions Yorkshire to support our growing team and recruitment requirements as outsourced HR Director.
Sarah joins our founder and managing director, Ellie MacDonald, alongside fellow outsourced finance director, Martin Mellor of Mellor Financial Management, to our board of directors. Sarah joins the team after setting up her business 18 months ago, following a 20-year career managing HR in the private sector.
She has worked as head of HR in a range of organisations from SMEs employing less than 20 people up to an international business with a workforce of 4000.
Sarah will support us with all aspects of people management including HR strategy and projects, recruitment and selection, learning and development, performance management, reward and benefits, and managing and motivating employees.
Ellie MacDonald, founder and managing director comments:
“Sarah’s philosophy of HR is about helping businesses to manage, motivate and develop their employees whilst staying within the law. Given our phenomenal growth in a short space of time, Sarah has come on board to support our growing number of employees.
“I am pleased that Sarah shares our values of treating people fairly and properly so I am confident we will continue to thrive and grow even further with her support.”
Sarah Darbyshire adds:
“I am proud to be working with a like-minded young and growing company like MacComms. Both Ellie and I are Yorkshire born and bred, keen to collaborate and work together to get the most from the MacComms team.”
HR solutions Yorkshire and ourselves are based at Entrepreneurial Spark, Leeds, the world’s largest growth accelerator programme.
