Jim Verity

Jim is a versatile, pragmatic and commercial Human Resources executive with over 25 years generalist experience in the manufacturing, engineering and retail sectors. A decade of this has been spent as Director and member of Executive teams for a medium-sized privately owned construction supply business and a UK subsidiary of a multi-national, Lafarge.

Jim has a passion and proven ability to design and deliver ambitious People Strategies that have played a key role in building significant value and increased financial performance. In his last HR Director role, he designed and delivered a strategy that created a highly engaged, empowered and performing workforce. Within two years the Company achieved a one star accreditation and finished just outside the top 100 of the Sunday Times Best Companies!

He has significant experience in Mergers and Acquisitions, a passion for building capability through the design of industry leading development programmes and is a strong leader with the ability to build high performing teams. He considers himself to have a natural coaching style.

Outside work, Jim is a strong family man and has a love of sport and the outdoors. He’s a keen cyclist, walker, traveller, occasional golfer and has just taken up skiing after a 25 year gap. He’s also a competitive squash player (and is delighted he can still beat his son!).
