Introducing Robin Watson who has joined the ViewHR team as employment law consultant

By Andrew Diprose, editor

ViewHR, an independent HR and Employment Law consultancy based in Dorset and Hampshire, is delighted to share that Robin Watson has joined the team as an Employment Law Consultant.

He brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously practised as an employment law solicitor and advocate, and adds an extra dynamic to the team’s services.

Here, we catch up with Robin to find out more about his role and what makes him tick.

What’s your role at ViewHR?

I am an employment law consultant. That means I specialise in the more complex, contentious, or technical issues that arise for our clients. I was a solicitor and partner in a leading law firm for many years. I not only specialised in employment law, but also had responsibility for over 100 employees too. I can now use all that experience to the benefit of View HR’s clients.

Why do you find employment law so interesting?

It involves people! It is often a quite unique blend of complicated law and human beings. The two will conflict at times, but our job is to keep employer and employee within the law, whilst supporting the commercial objectives of our clients.

What do you love about your job?

People again! I find people fascinating and you never stop learning if you take the time to listen to everyone you meet. Added to my passion for employment law, the job just fits my personality (and my nosiness).

What types of clients do you work with?

They are so varied. Manufacturing; health care; professional services; PR; finance; or technology. It does not matter how many employees a client has. Our role is to help the client achieve their business objectives and remain within the law and HR best-practice.

What makes ViewHR different from the rest?

The investment in experienced specialists that is so rare within the HR industry. Our team of advisors really do come with vast experience in their field, and we can now offer in-house employment law advice. The benefit to the client cannot be overestimated.
