Doug Farrow - HR Director (HR Consultancy).

“HR is about helping businesses manage their human capital in the most compassionate and effective way. With over 30 years’ experience working in the HR industry, for a wide range of organisations, I’ve encountered just about every HR issue that a business might face.”

Doug joined Buzzacott in 2013 and is the HR Director of Buzzacott’s HR Consultancy team.

Doug specialises in giving businesses practical and strategic solutions to managing people.  Within Buzzacott he also works closely with the Corporate, Charity, and Financial Planning teams, and so has an innate understanding of each sector’s challenges. 

Doug is able to help clients with all areas of HR including:

  • Employment law
  • TUPE
  • Design of remuneration policies
  • Organisational change

Doug is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development.

Prior to joining Buzzacott, Doug held several senior roles at HR consultancies and was also the Head of HR for a large UK financial services company.

Outside of work, Doug likes holidaying in the sun with his wife – especially in Florida and in Dubai where some of their family live and also enjoys playing golf.
