<p>Leeds law firm Clarion has appointed Tracy Booth as HR director to support its ongoing recruitment and staff development programmes.</p>

Tracy is CIPD qualified and has over 20 years’ experience of working in HR within the professional services sector.  She joins from TD Waterhouse International in Leeds where she spent 12 years, latterly as HR director.  Prior to this, she was HR and graduate recruitment manager at Deloitte & Touche for 10 years.

In her new role, Tracy will be responsible for setting Clarion’s HR strategy and working with the partners to develop the business plan to support the firm’s ambitious growth plans and enhancing the employee experience.  Her remit includes all aspects of HR including recruitment and selection, learning and development, reward and recognition, and facilities management.  She will also further develop Clarion’s corporate social responsibility agenda.

Mark Burns, managing partner at Clarion, commented: “Over the last five years, we have grown phenomenally, recruiting more than 20 employees last year alone, and we have ambitious plans to continue to expand as we move into our new offices at Elizabeth House this summer.

“As well as needing to continue to attract the best legal talent, Tracy will also help us to ensure that we maintain our high levels of staff loyalty as the firm grows.  She has a wealth of experience in the professional services sector and an impressive track record of working with strong businesses centred around high employee engagement levels.”

Tracy comments: “This is a fantastic opportunity to join a relatively young, dynamic firm which has built up a strong team and is now at an exciting stage as it enters the next phase of its development.  Clarion has established itself as a leading law firm because of the strength and depth of its team and I will be building on these firm foundations, using leading edge HR practices to drive future business growth.”
