Theresa Cooper – Founder of cooperativeHR Ltd, HR Professional and people problem solver

I am a fast thinking, confident and thorough HR Professional who strives for continuous improvement and results. I aim to add value to any business I work in by quickly building and developing rapport with key stakeholders, asking the right questions and getting to the heart of problems to come up with creative solutions to resolve them.

With over 15 years’ experience in HR, in many different roles and levels in a range of industries, I have extensive experience from dealing with day to day operational and administration issues to writing the people strategy, coaching and mentoring senior leaders, managing performance, restructuring and developing staff.

I love a challenge, rolling my sleeves up to support a team and the business whilst being flexible and feeling that I am making a difference. My desired outcome is to see the businesses I work in flourish whilst I continue to learn and develop.

Outside of work I try (!) to keep fit. Enjoying hockey and netball enhancing my love of team work and running when I need to get a quick fix and/or some thinking time!

I do everything I do for my family and love spending time with them, whether that’s a nice meal out with my husband, supporting my daughter at her singing and dance shows or watching my son play football.

I am also a bit of a social animal so I’m often found to be socialising with friends, family and any clients throwing a party!

Get in touch, I’d love to hear from you and I look forward to working with you. – 07825 985355

Mel Dees – Business Development & Marketing Executive and general all round go getter

I am a smart, proactive individual who enjoys building relationships and achieving great results. I have seven years recruitment experience and although recruitment wasn’t always easy and certainly had its highs and lows I was known for always providing a personable, friendly and professional service, making sure I went the extra mile to support my clients.

Business development has always been a huge part of my previous roles and I thoroughly enjoy introducing myself and our services to new clients whether it’s over the phone or face to face. The aim for me is to add value and reduce pressure on decision makers and make businesses more effective.

Working with CooperativeHR is brilliant. My role is to promote our proactive, supportive and flexible service which enables businesses to achieve high performance through effective people practices. I am keen to speak with you to discuss how we can help moving forward – I know we can make a difference.

I am a mother of a nearly 1 year old so most of my spare time is filled with looking after him however I play for a netball team and coach youngsters gymnastics and I’m certainly not shy for a few drinks at the weekend with friends and family!
