Ruth Allott (FCIPD)




Ruth Allott launched her independent consultancy in 2001 and since then has worked successfully with public and private sector clients on a broad range of organisational development, change management and people development activities.

Prior to this she worked for 17 years within the Electricity Supply Industry as a Human Resources professional. Her early career was within the learning and development field designing and delivering training, and running youth, graduate and professional development training schemes.

The major industry changes initiated by privatisation and divestment provided many opportunities for her to grow and apply her skills in organisational design, change management, leadership development and talent management. The strategic perspective that these experiences cultivated was invaluable in her later succession, talent management and business partnering roles.

Working style

As an HR Consultant her approach is to work closely with the organisation’s own mangers and professionals. In order to create an effective solution she believes that it is essential to harness the skills and expertise in the business, and use what is already working well for that organisation as a basis to move forward. Her style is open, engaging, motivating and the results are positive and cost effective.

Personal Philosophy

Ruth thrives on new challenges and change. She enjoys learning and strives to keep her skills up to date and her experience current. She is an accomplished trainer, facilitator and coach, accredited in the use of psychometrics and loves the opportunity to explore and understand new organisations.

She is an active member of the Solutions Focus network “The EDGe” and has learned much from working with leaders in this field including Mark McKergow, Paul Z Jackson, Jenny Clarke and Peter Szabo.


Since setting up in business she has worked in both the public and private sectors with companies including BNFL Magnox Electric, Gloucestershire County Council, Jaguar Land Rover, RWE Npower, Visa and Osborne Clarke


Where the solution requires a broader range of skills or more resources, she works with a range of associates who provide additional flexibility.
