Founded in 2010 by Ally Maughan, because she recognised that people problems were often the biggest, single factor holding a company back from growth.
People Puzzles has a team of experienced, HR professionals hand-picked for their proven ability to increase revenue and reduce costs.
So, what do we do and how do we do it? We aim to drive growth by solving your HR and people issues quickly and cost-effectively. We are energetic, proactive and results-focussed; we build strong relationships with your team, getting right up to speed with your commercial and financial challenges.
From there, we help you solve those fundamental people issues to improve and grow your business.
When People Puzzles join your team, you get the expertise of a complete HR department for a fraction of the cost. Our clients have full access to a huge range of HR specialisms — even though they are only working with one member of our team. This collaborative, skill-sharing process is key to our approach.
People Puzzles provide highly experienced People Directors who deliver business transformation. Our People Directors work flexibly as part of your team, usually 3-8 days per month, to find straightforward solutions to your people puzzles both strategic and operational, for a fraction of the cost of a full-timer.
Our services include:
We work with mid-tier SMEs (£5 – £50m turnover/30-300 FTE). Our entrepreneurial client base range from owner-managed, family owned, VC/PE-backed, usually without a full-time People Director.
Most mid-tier businesses don’t want, don’t need or can’t afford a full time HR director. Motivating and managing people often slides down the priority list because it is messy and hard to prioritise. However, no business can get ahead without effective, motivated and well-trained staff.

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced, entrepreneurial, director- calibre individual, with a passion for working with mid-tier businesses and understanding the value that great HR can add.

Your future earnings are uncapped and only limited by your professional aspirations, with a realistic estimation of £100k+ earnings per annum after 3 years.
