Heather Paver

I have three decades of experience in HR and general management across retail, services, and Higher Education sectors. As an HRD I was responsible for recruitment, talent management, reward, colleague engagement and organisation and leadership development.


I have a BA in French & German from the University of Birmingham, am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute Personnel and Development, and an Associate Member of the Association for Coaching. I am qualified as an executive coach and mentor and am an OPP accredited practitioner of the MBTI psychometric tool.


I have recently left the position of HR Director at the University of Birmingham in order to set up my own coaching and consulting practice. 


Having sat on the boards of four very different organisations across the retail, services, charity and HE sectors I am enjoying using the experience gained to help others and their organisations to thrive. I believe strongly that successful organisations flourish when attention is paid to emotional intelligence, engagement of colleagues, and building relationships.
