A passionate and energetic speaker, Claire’s passion for people is evident in how she talks about helping companies really engage with their staff and make incredible differences to their productivity and, ultimately, their revenue. Born into a family of self-starters spanning several generations, it was a natural choice for Claire to start her own business, which began in 2017 and has gone from strength to strength. With a 12-year history in Capita and Danske Bank, Claire has first-hand experience of HR in large companies but Claire’s entrepreneurial spirit has hit home with start-ups and SMEs. She is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, has a First Class Honors Degree and Masters in HRM. In addition, she is a qualified Leadership Coach, a part time lecturer and trainer in the field of Management, Leadership and HR for South Eastern Regional College and Belfast Metropolitan College. In 2019 Claire was a finalist in the Courage Category in the Mums in Business National Awards, the Mighty Women Awards for Entrepreneurship and the Great British Entrepreneur Awards for Entrepreneurial Spirit.
With over 18 years of public and private sector experience in people development, Corrina’s passion for performance management is palpable. Corrina knew early on in her career that working with companies to develop a strong workforce was what came naturally to her. Intuitive and a great listener, her personal skills helped quickly develop a rapport with managers and employees alike. Prior to working with EVOLVE, Corrina’s extensive experience includes 13 years at Capita. Here she managed large teams and held a number of roles delivering Payroll, Recruitment, Onboarding and HR services to a wide variety of clients. She is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a part time trainer through Belfast Metropolitan College.
Rachael’s unique experience touches upon every aspect of people management from within major UK corporates to small start-ups keen to make their mark in the global economy and marketplace. You name it, she’s dealt with it! Starting her career in PWC as an Audit Planner, she eventually lead their growing business division some 11 years later. Then moving to the SERE Motor Group, Rachael’s natural strategic thinking became invaluable in creating new policy as the company grew, becoming the key person to manage personal development across the company. But it was during Rachael’s time with the Equality Commission and, subsequently, starting a family, she saw the value of flexible working – the growing new norm going into 2020. With the employer/employee relationship shifting so much, it’s this understanding that sees EVOLVE’s quick ascension to being to go-to agency for people management in Northern Ireland. Joining EVOLVE was a natural conclusion for Rachael to be a part of the changing landscape of people management.

The team at EVOLVE were both friendly and professional to work with. They helped me with recruitment interviews and staff contracts. I was relieved to know when this pandemic struck that we already had relevant inclusions included in our policies and contracts should we have needed them.
As CEO of a start up, working with EVOLVE has been incredibly beneficial during this early grow stage in our company. They are very down to earth, and have a friendly approach which makes it very easy for me and any of our team to discuss any issues we might have. They have given me great support when dealing with difficult staff issues or making critical business decisions as well as ensuring all of our HR documentation is kept up to date. The team at EVOLVE has got to know our business and really I feel they are now part of our wider team. They are professional, friendly and always on hand to offer advice. I would have no concerns in recommending EVOLVE to any company who is needing the support of an HR service.
Claire has been a great sounding board over the years, she has always been there to reassure and guide me as managing staff, at times, can be complex. She always keeps me on the right track! My team have also worked with Claire attending the Engage & Grow sessions and I can honestly say we are working better together, making us a much stronger, more communicative team. I love the personal touch of Claire and the team at EVOLVE, I initially thought this would have been a short term business relationship, however some months in business everything runs smoothly and then others can be a bit stormy. Having the reassurance that they are there to call upon means that this is a service I am more than happy to pay a monthly fee for, you just never know when you need them next!
I first consulted EVOLVE a couple of years ago when I bought my business and needed support with TUPE. They were able to expertly advise what steps I needed to go through and were able to explain every in a straightforward way. As a start-up business they have been great at assisting me with all manner of HR and people related queries, no question is a silly one and they are always available to help. I would definitely recommend them.
I recently used EVOLVE to guide me through a situation with an employee. They were very professional, talked me through what I needed to do and gave me lots of advice. I’ll certainly be using their services again. Thanks!
