Nucleus HR Onside with Leicester Tigers Win
Leicester HR firm, Nucleus HR, has announced a brand-new Human Resources partnership with Leicester Tigers, bringing its expertise to the club ahead of the new season.
With over 21 years of industry experience – and a former professional athlete herself – Toni Robinson, who founded Nucleus HR in 2017, impressed the senior management team at Leicester Tigers with her straight-talking suggestions as to how the HR function could and should support the direction of their wider business plan.
With a particular focus on employee engagement, Toni and the team are working closely with Leicester Tigers to tackle a three-year HR strategy in a move that’s being viewed as hugely positive throughout the club.
Toni Robinson, Managing Director at Nucleus HR, says: “We are honoured to have been given the opportunity to work with one of the biggest sporting clubs in the region – it has been a goal of ours for many years. We are very much looking forward to joining the team in supporting the staff and players on both a practical and strategic level.”
As part of the restructure, Matt Johnson, who has been with the club for 10 years based at the training facility and working with the playing side, will be taking up a new role as Head of HR, working closely alongside Toni and her team.
Nucleus HR prides itself in being the only business to offer industry expertise and support across all HR platforms on a national level. Having worked with businesses in the sporting, education and software development industries previously, the Nucleus team is used to adapting to a variety of situations, always ensuring that the client comes first.
Andrea Pinchen, Commercial Director at Leicester Tigers, says: “We are delighted to have Toni and the Nucleus HR team on board to assist Matt with the development of our HR strategy. The restructure is part of a wider Club review and will be pivotal in the delivery and execution of our business plan. With Toni on board, things are moving ahead at a rate of knots and we are all excited to see the results as we move into the 2019/20 season and beyond.”
