Hannah Maxwell

HR Adviser

As a CIPD qualified HR Adviser, I provide human resource services to BLHR clients. I offer support and advice in order to make a real difference to businesses and the lives of their employees.

Having a career within a ‘people profession’ has always been important to me.

I joined Birkett Long because I wanted to be part of a successful and thriving practice. It doesn’t just support its clients but also the wider community. Birkett Long offers open HR forums whilst developing its employees through learning and development opportunities, as supported by their Investors in People accreditation.

Being client side means I am exposed to a range of businesses, each with their own HR challenges. As a CIPD qualified HR Adviser, I understand the importance of keeping up to date with legal obligations, best practise and how confusing this can be for employers.

Outside of work, I am a PADI qualified open water diver and a keen traveller. I love exploring countries that sit outside of the ‘normal’ holiday destinations. Back at home, I enjoy photography, practising yoga and (attempting) to play the saxophone.

Employment and BLHR team

The Employment and BLHR team listens to the needs and objectives of our clients, whether they are individuals seeking advice about their employment or a potential claim or a business needing guidance on how to resolve a situation with an employee. Our advice is commercial and pragmatic whilst taking into account the legalities. 

All members of the team are happy to discuss the background of your situation over the telephone for an initial 15 minutes, at no cost, to see if the matter is something we can assist with and if future costs are worthwhile for you.
