Business name: Acorn HR
Support Received: New Anglia Growth Programme

With extensive experience of working within the charity sector, Susan Rumsby, from Hopton in Norfolk, was perfectly positioned to establish Acorn HR. Offering human resources and employment law advice and support to charities and social enterprise groups, as well as small and start-up businesses, Acorn HR launched in September 2016.
What was your motivation to start Acorn HR?
I have 25 years’ of experience within the field of Human Resources. I am also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, as well as achieving an MA degree in Human Resource Management. I wanted to put my expertise to use to provide organisations with a complete package of support to guide them through the maze of employment law and good HR practice.
