Tamsin Foxwell IAAPS People Lead
Tamsin is responsible for the IAAPS people strategy - ensuring we create the right culture to attract, develop and retain world-leading talent.
As People Lead, Tamsin works closely and collaboratively with the IAAPS team, and senior stakeholders across the University to design and deliver HR solutions that will enable IAAPS to achieve its objectives. The success of IAAPS depends on its people; ensuring that we're creating the right environments for success is a critical driver of the project. Working closely with existing teams at the University to build on successes, and creating innovative solutions that meet the needs of IAAPS are both central to Tamsin's role.
Tamsin has worked as a Business Partner at the University since January 2017; partnering with the Faculty of Engineering & Design and seven professional services departments. Prior to this she was part of a successful, fast-growing SME within renewable energy, with specific responsibility for all talent-attraction and resourcing activity at a time when the business quadrupled in headcount over 18 months.
Tamsin has been recognised for her commercial awareness and ability to look at people challenges differently, drawing on a range of experiences from inside and outside HR. Her interest in skills, and career development stemmed from her time as a published author, specialising in careers, skills and development material for schools, colleges and professional bodies throughout England and Wales. Prior to this she worked in a national projects role for The National Trust.
Tamsin is CIPD Level 7 qualified HR professional, and is currently completing her ILM coaching qualification. Tamsin has a strong connection with the University of Bath, where she completed her MRes in Social Research in 2003.
