Donna Golds As a consultant I have worked in the private, public and not for profit and voluntary sectors. My background is in assessment, recruitment, employment legislation, reward structures, training and development and performance management in the retail and airline sectors.

My career path, prior to working as a Consultant, began in retail management following University. I was on a Graduate Management Scheme for Holland and Barrett and ran several of their stores before leaving to work for Debenhams. I was part of Debenhams for seven years; progressing to Store Manager after gaining experience across a range of both roles and stores around the country. I then worked for a convenience store chain as an Area Manager before progressing to a Training Manager where I was responsible for designing, delivering and evaluating training for managers in the retail sector. This accumulated experience formed a launchpad for my voyage into HR.

As an HR Manager I was accountable and responsible for all aspects of HR including advising line managers on all staffing issues, including recruitment, induction, performance management, redundancy and design and delivery of assessment centres both for recruitment and development purposes. The transition from retail to airlines came via Chameleon Training and Consulting (part of British Airways), once again in an HR capacity.

When I’m not working as a consultant I have two boys aged 11 and 16 to spend time with – and a love of golf but seldom the opportunity to play!
