Not really an HR Consultant…

Wisteria Lodge HR is owned and run by me, Diane Moore. I’m based in the beautiful village of Horning, on the Norfolk Broads, but spend most of my time out and about with clients in their businesses.

I always hesitate to use the term ‘HR Consultant’ to describe what I do. Somehow it feels a bit hands off. I help businesses with all their HR bits and pieces, but in a very practical way. It tends to be face to face and I like getting stuck right in. I don’t just tell you what needs doing and then leave you to muddle through on your own. Having said that, you can of course just give me a call for some HR advice over the phone.

Perhaps it’s better to think of me as an ‘HR Manager when you need one’ offering a range of services to local small businesses that can be adapted to suit your specific requirements.


What makes me unique

I’m fairly unique in the HR world in that I have worked in operational management roles before I decided to specialise in employment issues. In my career to date I have covered a wide spectrum of people management roles. It’s this diverse experience which gives me the ability to now offer a wide range of support services to my clients. These include

  • HR generalist advice (contracts, policies, pay and rations…)
  • Restructures, acquisitions and organisational change
  • Training and Development

Please check me out on LinkedIn and feel free to connect with me there.

I’ve been told that I’m great to work with: pragmatic, straightforward in approach, and very passionate about making a difference and adding value through the work that I do. I’ve asked a couple of my clients to give a sense of their experience working with me and you can read what they had to say below.

On the Professional front, I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and also hold a Masters Degree in Human Resource Management, together with a post graduate Diploma in Training Management.

As a small business taking on their first employee, we wanted to know we were doing everything right. Diane’s knowledge, expertise and reassurance were the perfect support. Her flexible approach meant we were able to start small, getting the contract spot on, knowing that we can build on this as our team grows in the future. It’s comforting to know we can call on someone to help us if we have any HR queries who will be friendly, professional, and speak to us in terms we can understand and relate to.
