Our Story

hr inspire’s history

Drawing on near 30 years’ HR experience working for many household names, Sandra McLellan founded HR, recruitment & training consultancy hr inspire in 2012.

Skilled in managing HR functions while keeping a commercial focus, Sandra spotted the need to bring the value of an entire HR department to SMEs at an affordable level.

hr inspire has now evolved to a 17+ strong team of HR experts with 100+ customers, with knowledge and experience supporting businesses to grow through effective people management and practical HR advice.

Our Customers

We’ve supported household names including Argos, Amazon, British Heart Foundation and Virgin Active to name but a few. We’ve helped over 100 SMEs grow and protect their business and are proud to still call the majority customers.
