The Team

It's the depth of HR experience which underpins Gazella's pragmatic, professional approach

Roger Davies

As an ex-HR director in a multi-site, highly-operational corporate business employing 2200 staff and up to 2500 temps each day, Roger has experienced the very good, the bad and even the ugly in HR practice.

As an HR consultant, he has worked with some wonderful companies ranging from 5 to 5500 people in the manufacturing, retail, logistics, distribution, IT, recruitment, care, industrial services, public and charitable sectors, on everything from strategy and handbooks to recruitment and redundancies to TUPE and settlement agreements. He now brings that experience to bear every day, getting to the heart of business problems and opportunities quickly, allowing you to get on with delivering growth and value to your customers.

HR for Roger is not employment law and policies. It’s about growing businesses as great places to work – places where people know they want to be and where they are engaged in the values, outcomes and success of the company.

You make an investment when you employ people. Roger’s aim is help you to maximise your return on that investment, working as a highly efficient 'plug and play' service for your business. As his clients tell him, he doesn't just talk HR. He does it. He makes it his business to take away your HR headaches, making sure that HR is never a blocker and never, ever HR for HR's sake.

Outside work, Roger is a tennis and real tennis player, a cyclist, and an avid Welsh rugby fan. He has two grown up children, one working in the art world, the other just starting life as a midwife. He lives with his wife of 32 years near Cirencester in the west country.

Favourite book - One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Favourite music – Everything from Joni Mitchell, Brahms and Porcupine Tree to Miles Davis.

Favourite drinks - Good coffee and good wine.
