Solutionize Global, a cloud and technology professional and managed service provider, has launched a new internal role that focuses on company culture, employee engagement and organisational growth.

Kirsty Carter has been announced as the 11-year-old firm’s chief of staff – a position that will see her lead on evolving the team’s in-house training, hiring, professional development and performance management structures.

Additionally, Kirsty will act as an advisor to Solutionize Global’s CEO, David Bentley, to further enhance the organisation’s growth and development alongside ensuring it continues to provide the most agile solutions for a vast client base – which includes NHS Digital.

First joining Solutionize Global as executive assistant in 2019, Kirsty has enjoyed a 12-year, people-focused career, predominately in a sales environment after graduating from the University of Leeds with an Arts and Education degree.

Speaking about her promotion, Kirsty said: “Solutionize Global puts people at the heart of everything it does and I’ve been extremely fortunate to work with colleagues who truly care about future-proofing their in-house learning and development, company culture and internal communications.

“Engaging a workforce isn’t an optional activity – it’s essential. By creating this new role, Solutionize Global has demonstrated a commitment to employee relations, which is a dream position for me.”

Commenting on her workplace priorities for the tech consultancy this year, Kirsty added: “I want to continue to create efficiencies around all aspects of the organisation’s HR function and invest in the development of our existing team.

“In addition, attracting the very best talent in the market will only help towards continuing to execute our scaling model.”

The newly formed role underlines the enterprise’s growth ambitions and dedication to upskilling and retaining top tech talent – with five recruits set to be announced over the coming months.

David Bentley, CEO of Solutionize Global, said: “Kirsty has demonstrated a passion for all people-centred activities including onboarding, people strategy and personal development.

“I’ve absolute confidence in Kirsty’s ability to put colleagues first and maintain the high standards we set ourselves in the business.”
