We are very excited to have recently appointed Karen Buckley as People and Culture Director and Sonia Robertson as Head of Talent to boost our talent team.

Karen brings over 25 years of experience in human resources and before joining us, Karen held leadership positions in human resources across various industries, including professional, consumer goods, and financial services.

Sonia brings a wealth of knowledge to the newly created role of Head of Talent, having worked in leading companies including M&S, O2, Virgin, Vodafone and the Co-op. Movera is entering a significant period of growth and Sonia has been tasked with taking recruitment to the next level.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sonia and Karen to Movera,” said Nick Hale, our CEO. “Karen’s extensive experience and proven track record in fostering positive and productive work environments will be invaluable as we continue to grow and scale our business. Karen’s commitment to employee development and creating a culture of inclusion aligns perfectly with our core values.

“Sonia’s deep understanding of the recruitment landscape and her proven ability to attract top talent will propel Movera’s growth strategy forward. Her focus on creating a positive candidate experience and building a strong employer brand will ensure we have the best team to achieve our ambitious goals.”

Karen will work with leadership to cultivate a high-performing culture, where employees feel supported to reach their full potential. She is committed to fostering professional development and will explore opportunities for on-the-job learning and career development, empowering our employees to pursue their ambitions within the company.

“I am incredibly excited to join Movera at such a pivotal time in the company’s growth,” said Karen. “The positive and supportive culture at Movera is truly inspiring, I look forward to working with the leadership team to further develop a work environment where everyone feels valued and empowered to succeed.”

Sonia will look at the basics of recruitment, such as job descriptions, candidate assessment processes and onboarding procedures. She will ensure these all function effectively to deliver a positive experience for candidates and hiring managers. Sonia will also be looking at employer branding. A key part of Sonia’s role will be working closely with the workforce planning team to ensure that we have the right people in place to meet the demands of our ambitious growth plans.

Sonia said, “It’s about understanding what makes Movera a great place to work and why people choose to stay here,” she explained. “We will then use this information to build our employer value proposition and attract the best talent.

Welcome to you both!
