Jo Chambers, Head of Outsourced HR Solutions
Hi, I’m Jo. I’ve worked in HR for over 20 years, 16 of which were spent at HR Services Partnership (now part of WorkNest) as a Senior HR Consultant, supporting small organisations who don’t have internal HR expertise with all elements of HR.
An important part of this is ensuring that staff are treated fairly and consistently, with an emphasis on improving working relationships and ensuring staff and managers are provided with adequate support and resources to perform well in their roles.
As a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD, I’ve now taken on the challenge of Head of Outsourced HR Solutions within WorkNest to provide a fully outsourced HR provision to clients, including recruitment and onboarding, transaction HR support, payroll and offboarding.
I’m married with two children, who tend to keep me very occupied! In my spare time, I enjoy science fiction books, films and TV. I’m also a fan of jigsaw puzzles and Lego and am a whizz at building flat-pack furniture!

We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”

Pineapple have worked with the team at WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) since 2003, and we have built a trusted partnership together.
