About Us

The Leap into HR Consulting programmes were founded in 2019 by Sarah Hamilton-Gill FCIPD, the UK's leading mentor for HR Consultants 

Sarah's passion for empowering HR professionals to take the leap from full-time employment to starting their own successful HR consultancy businesses, comes from her own experience of developing a successful HR Consultancy business almost 30 years ago. A business which adds enormous value to her clients and one that as been grown on her terms, where her skills and experience are financially rewarded, and one that affords her the freedom to live life as she chooses (currently in sunny Corfu). This is something Sarah is passionate about helping other HR professionals achieve too, which is why Leap into HR Consulting exists today.

Our values of honesty, flexibility, fun, inclusiveness and respect, guide everything we do, from our 1:1 coaching to our bootcamps, online masterclasses and other available tools and resources. We're committed to helping HR professionals like you build the skills, knowledge, and confidence you need to thrive in the world of HR consultancy, and we're uniquely positioned to provide you with the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals. 
We don't just tell you what to do in order to succeed, we show you how to do it.

We're excited to be part of your journey to becoming a successful HR consultant, and we look forward to working with you to help you achieve your dreams of establishing and growing an HR Consultancy business to be proud of.

Meet the Team

Sarah Hamilton-Gill FCIPD Founder and HR Consulting Expert

As a business owner, you have the freedom and flexibility to create a work-life balance that works for you and your family. While it can be challenging to balance the demands of running a business with the demands of parenting, it can also be extremely rewarding to be able to be present and involved in your children's lives while also pursuing your professional goals. It's important to remember that it's possible to have a successful business and a fulfilling personal life, and that it's up to you to create the balance that works best for you.

I've also had the privilege of working with many small and medium-sized businesses, helping them to grow and thrive. With my 29 years of experience in the consulting industry, I've developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise that I love sharing with others through my coaching and mentoring work.

Whether you're just starting out in the consulting world or you're an experienced professional looking to take your business to the next level, I'm here to help. My goal is to empower you to succeed and achieve your dreams, and I believe that anything is possible with the right mindset, strategy, and support.

If you're ready to take the leap and start your journey as a successful HR consultant, I invite you to explore my coaching programs and resources. Together, we can achieve great things and create the life and career you've always wanted.

Are you tired of feeling stuck in your corporate job and yearning for more flexibility and control over your career? I've been there, and I know first hand how scary it can be to make the leap into consulting. But with the right guidance and strategy, it can be an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling journey.

With over 29 years of experience in HR consulting, I've learned what it takes to build a successful consulting business. I've worked with major companies like BT, Vodafone, Santander, and the English Football Association, and I've been recognized for my expertise with awards including Finalist in the CIPD Best HR Consultancy (2018), Influential Small Business Owner (2018), HR Consultancy of the Year (2020) from Business and Industry Today, and a finalist for the Reinvention Award (2020).

But it hasn't always been easy. As a mother of two, I know firsthand the challenges of balancing a busy career with family life. That's why I'm so passionate about helping others achieve the flexibility and freedom that comes with being a consultant. I want to help you create a lifestyle you enjoy, desire, and deserve by building a profitable business that allows you to choose how and where you work. So don't let fear hold you back any longer. Let's work together to make your dream of becoming a successful HR consultant a reality.

On 5th November 2020 I self-published my book, Leap into HR Consulting - How to move successfully from Corporate to Consulting which has not only topped the business books list on Amazon but was also a finalist in the Business Book Awards 2021.

It’s available at all good book shops and Amazon worldwide as an eBook, Audible and paperback. “If I can do it, you can do it too!"

Sarah Burden

As a marketing and communications specialist with over two decades of experience, I jumped at the opportunity to join the talented team at GlobusHR Consulting in May 2021. After being made redundant earlier that year, I connected with Sarah Hamilton-Gill FCIPD and haven't looked back since.

Having come from a charity background, HR consulting was new to me, but I have now niched in HR marketing, and loving every minute of it. 

In my role, I get to use my diverse skillset to support the business in various ways, including digital marketing, website management, social media, and more. I also have the opportunity to lead virtual marketing workshops and coffee mornings for our Bootcampers, Bootcamp Graduates, and growth group, something I never would have imagined doing before.

When I'm not working, you can find me getting creative with wool, paper, or silver and gemstones.

Kim Hall

I am the Client Success Manager, supporting Sarah and the team as well as our clients.  I started working for Sarah in January 2023 and is one of the best decisions I have made!

I have over 20 years’ experience in Learning and Development and having worked abroad for many years, including India, Barcelona, Madrid, Budapest, Belgium, I always knew would move abroad at some point to live permanently and work remotely.  So in the words of Sarah, I took my Leap in 2015 and moved to Greece and after 8 years I am still here and enjoy the flexibility, working with people and love seeing others follow their dreams and feeling part of it.

When I'm not working, I love to walk, swim, socialise and enjoy the Greek weather!

Emma Savin

Having a unique eye for detail and a skill for understanding figures from an early age I decided to continue my educational studies at Edinburgh University. I graduated with 1st class honours degree in Accounting in 2016 and then made a permanent move to Corfu, Greece. I had the opportunity to work in the reservations and accounts department of a busy hotel for the last 7 years and have expanded my skill set greatly.
I connected with Sarah Hamilton-Gill FCIPD in early January 2023 and instantly knew this was the role for me. I joined the team at the start of February, and I haven’t looked back since.
In my role I use Xero, an online accounting software where I undertake various accounting and administrative tasks such as preparing budgets, managing accounting records, processing transactions, and analysing financial data. I am thoroughly enjoying working alongside the talented team at GlobusHR Consulting and can’t wait to see what the future brings.
In my own time I am mum to my beautiful daughter, animal lover and love to travel and experience different cultures.
