> South Oxon HR Networking Group

Employment Law Plus founded the South Oxfordshire HR Network. The Network meets regularly through the year and is open to all HR professionals and anyone who has responsibility for people management in their business. The Network is now run by Belinda Elliott at Bluestream Recruitment.

Meetings are usually free of charge and are hosted by Bluestream Recruitment at the Harwell campus.

At previous meetings we have had had speakers on topics including the following:

  • Recruiting to create a winning company ethos
  • Tax issues and Enhancing Reward to Staff
  • Promoting the progress of women in professional roles
  • Redundancies, Restructuring and Changing Contract Terms – the Legal Issues
  • Getting the most from your staff
  • Workplace stress
  • Recruitment plus Development = Performance
  • Drug & alcohol policies
  • The General Data Protection Regulation

    Details of our next meeting:

  • Our next meeting will be on 20 June on GDPR - one year on

    Attendance is by invitation. For more information or for invitations to future Network meetings, email jkelly@employmentlawplus.com





  • "I really enjoy attending the HR Network Meetings, the topics presented are always useful and interesting and the locations these are held are within easy reach, it’s also a great way to Network with other HR/Recruitment Professionals in the local area and best of all, it’s free to attend!. I look forward to the next Meeting!" Zoe Bates, HR Advisor, Johnson Matthey

    "A very informative, constructive session with lots of new “learns” to take away. The informality of the group facilitates a relaxed way of sharing information." Jenny Frame, Nielsen

    "The South Oxon HR Network has been a great asset to me as a lone HR practitioner, allowing me to remain ahead of the game with new employment legislation and common themes/issues HR departments face – always informative and very relevant and all done in a friendly, informal approach." Louise Hoskin, HR Executive, Wirth Research

    "I was originally a bit sceptical about attending the South Oxford HR Network at first, but once you have been and met the variety of individual who attend you look forward to the next one. A great way to network and keep up with what is new in all areas of HR." Iain Urquhart, Bursar, The Orders of St John Care Trust

    "I have enjoyed the meetings of the network and found them worthwhile both from a gaining knowledge point of view and from meeting other HR professionals.." Madeline Seymour, HR Services Manager, OXIS Energy Limited
