HR Star Team

Kelly Tucker

Founder & Managing Director

As our founding star, Kelly established HR star in 2015 and has over 15 years’ experience in the HR world having worked for leading local companies including Renishaw, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and Lloyds TSB (formally C&G). Kelly is a proactive HR professional and firmly believes that HR should be fun, engaging and provide a healthy environment for all to flourish.

Through her extensive experience in Senior HR positions, Kelly recognised that businesses could increase productivity and reduce staff challenges by embracing employee engagement as a key element of their company culture. And the rest was history!

Fun fact: Kelly is a self-confessed Peloton addict! In Kelly’s spare time you will find her pedaling towards her next trophy. When she’s not beating her latest time, you’ll find her frantically looking online for last minute tickets to Celine Dion concerts!

Having worked in HR for 15 years, I understand firsthand what a difference engaged employees can make to a business. To me, employee engagement is all about how each individual fits into the business on a wider level, where your people feel part of something much bigger.

Holly Prosser

People Advisor

As our people star, Holly knows all about people and how to get teams to function optimally. Holly started her career in HR and Recruitment 3 years ago, and studied her Level 5 CIPD in 2019 before joining the HR Star team. Holly believes businesses thrive with an active HR team at their core who can listen to their employees, act on their feedback and create a happy workforce for all. Holly works tirelessly with clients to make positive changes, whether that be through simply just listening to them, coaching them, or by using their feedback to make strategic recommendations to Directors.

Fun fact: As an avid Fitbit Challenge walker, Holly knows a thing or two about hiking trails. When not power walking or listening to Shania Twain, Holly is a keen writer and has contributed to Bounce Back Journey publications – so go and check them out!

We call ourselves the ‘Dream Team’ because we really do dream up creative ideas for the business as a team and work together as a family.

Caz Bird

People and Talent Administrator

As our people and talent star, Caz joined the team in 2020 having had previous roles in project management and resource planning. Whilst on maternity leave, Caz realised that what she loved about work was the people. After completing her CIPD level 5 in the summer of 2020, Caz wanted to pursue a role in HR with a team that shared her passion for people. As a firm believer that people are a business’ greatest asset, Caz has seen first hand that people perform best when they are happy and engaged in their role.

Fun Fact: Caz is an avid traveller, and has almost ticked off all 194 countries across the globe (no, seriously). At weekends you can find Caz enjoying some seriously good home cooked tapas and a nice bottle of vino!

HR isn’t always about process and procedure, it can be about building relationships, mentoring, and elevating people to their true potential. HR requires people focussed thinking and I am all about the people!

I love my job because it feeds my love of learning about neurology, habits, health, emotions and behaviours. I love to share this through training and coaching in practical ways.
