Tim is a UK HR professional and Chartered Fellow of the CIPD with over twenty years of generalist experience in roles across the private, public and voluntary sectors. Alongside his “day jobs”, he has co-written a number of books about HR and management, including the successful “Putting Social Media to Work” series. A self-confessed social media convert, Tim is active on Twitter (as @TimScottHR) and also writes for a number of publications and sites.
Tim is currently People Director at Fletchers Solicitors, a leading law firm in the North West of England. He has previously worked as an independent HR consultant and been Head of People & Organisational Development for a national UK charity, where his team won the Charity Times’ prestigious “HR Management” award.
Throughout his career he has worked closely on people and productivity issues with senior managers and developed people-focused HR teams. A firm believer that there is no such thing as best practice in people management, he has focused on designing and implementing business-appropriate practices, often in organisations which previously had little or no dedicated HR leadership. He says his career aim is simple: to improve people’s experience at work.
