Karen joined Aspire in 2009 as Senior Manager.  Previously Karen worked in management roles in DWP and a GP partnership, both of which provided her with extensive experience in adjudication, HR and the interpretation of legislation. 

This background, together with her practical approach, has proven to be vital to her role with Aspire.  Karen specialises in a wide range of issues including;

  • Agency Legislation

  • Agency Reporting

  • Agency Workers Regulations

  • Compliance Review

  • Conduct Regulations

  • Expenses and Benefits

  • Contract design and implementation

  • National Minimum Wage

  • PAYE Review

Outside of work Karen enjoys reading biographies and jogging (very slowly!).
