HR Coordinator


Lucy is one of the most thoughtful and supportive people I have worked with. Kind in nature and uses rationale and facts to make decisions. Thorough and detail orientated her support over the last few years in HR have been invaluable.

HR Manager, Leading UK watch brand

Tracey brings the human touch with sensible, strategic advice and practical solutions.

CHW Venues

Tracey has quickly become a valued member of our team: proactive, helpful, agile in her approach and extremely well-informed. She is now essential to our plans moving forward.

Studio Republic

Lucy has been of invaluable support to our UK company and to me personally when I just joined our group in 2018. Lucy helped me stabilise the business and answer employee needs in a building up phase, as we were setting the foundations of our HR services. I am very grateful for all her support and can warmly recommend her to any employer who needs advice and professional HR support.

Vice President Human Resources EMEA

Lucy is very practical and will find solutions to HR problems which, without her involvement, would quickly escalate and damage a business. We recommend Lucy and The Little HR Department.

Owner, The Legal Partners

Tracey has been truly instrumental in shaping the future of our business during the pandemic – arguably the most unpredictable and challenging time imaginable.

Studio Republic

We would not hesitate to recommend Lucy and her team for all matters relating to HR. Whilst incredibly professional, Lucy is also extremely personable and we have enjoyed working with her on various projects over the last year. As a smaller sized business, it has proved invaluable to have expert HR advise and help on hand whenever needed.

PA/Office Manager – Midas Sport

Lucy is a delight to work with, she is very knowledgeable in her field and seems to have experienced every scenario I look to seek advice on. A genuine expert. Lucy is hard working, enthusiastic and very passionate which comes through in all she does. I would highly recommend Lucy, she is a pleasure to work with.
