Rosie Mellers

Rosie Mellers is an HR professional with a wide range of generalist HR experience, and a specific flair for employment law and employee relations. As an HR Consultant for LoatesHR (a subsidiary of Loates Business Solutions Ltd, which is also the parent company of LoatesTraining and LoatesRecruitment), Rosie provides HR support and advice to SMEs in the East Midlands region.

Since being Loates’ first employee, Rosie has developed her extensive expertise during a few concentrated years and has been exposed to HR issues that many HR professionals with over 20 years’ experience often don’t encounter. For that Rosie will always be grateful.

Rosie, a Lincolnshire lady, is passionate about developing businesses and so moving to Derby was a natural fit. Rosie is now an active member of the Derby business community and thrives from the positivity in the Derbyshire air; a similar atmosphere experienced by Rosie during her years studying Sociology at the University of Leeds, where she achieved a first class degree.

LoatesHR has continued to expand with the support and business focussed attitude of Rosie and her loyalty during her years as an HR consultant have reinforced her style as a compassionate and charismatic HR professional and mentor to clients. Not only is she a highly skilled professional, Rosie also endorses her role as a human being, demonstrated through her commitment and investment in mindfulness and coaching programmes.

Before devoting her time to developing LoatesHR and supporting her client base in all things HR, Rosie was a successful Recruitment Consultant as well as an Assistant Complex Manager, leading an enthusiastic team up to 15 staff in the hospitality industry. She is appreciative and proud of her achievements in the world of business.

Rosie’s positive outlook on life encouraged her to venture through Europe and South East Asia experiencing the cultures seeping throughout the world. This was an adventure she will cherish for life and which she uses daily in her approach to HR.

Even with having travelled afar, Rosie still relishes the culture where she lives in the Peak District, and she often utilises the peace and quiet when exploring new ideas for LoatesHR and actively practising her field through CPD. It is unusual to see Rosie without a smile on her face; if you don’t believe that, do see for yourself as she’s always happy to meet new people.

One of Rosie’s Testimonials

"LoatesHR have been so supportive. Taking on that first employee can be so daunting, but Rosie and team really laid everything out for us so we were very clear what processes we needed to follow and also what paperwork we needed to get in place. We look forward to working with Loates as our company develops further – thank you!"
