A regional law firm with offices in Cumbria has appointed an expert in people.

Napthens, which has an office in Kendal's Bridge Mills Business Centre, has appointed Claire Miller as its People Consultant.

Claire, who has a decade of experience working in human resources, previously worked for the General Medical Council and is an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

She has become a member of Napthens' People Projects Team – a human resources and people management support service staffed by a team of specialists working alongside the firm’s employment law service.

Her role will involve advising clients across the North West.

In particular, she will work as part of the company's HR3 service, which aims to provide a fixed cost employment law and human resources service for employers.

This can include supporting on employee relations issues, project delivery and working at a strategic level with clients.

Chris Boyle, head of employment and human resources at Napthens, said: “Claire is a true HR generalist with more than 10 years’ experience in the field advising on large-scale HR projects.

"As part of the People Projects team she will make a real difference to our clients’ businesses and help them focus on their number one priority – running the business.”

Napthens has offices across the North West in Liverpool, Blackpool, Southport and Blackburn with its headquarters in Preston.
