DarrenNEW HR Director Darren Palmer joined the company on July 1… and he’s delighted to be back. Darren was iPSL’s Head of HR until he left for new opportunities and he says now is exactly the right time to return. “It’s great to be given the opportunity to return to an organisation with a great history of customer service and innovation and to work on an exciting people agenda,” he says. “When I left in 2013 we had just completed a review on the impact of moving to image-based technology, so it’s exciting to return at a time when the organisation is preparing for this significant change and the impact it will have on service delivery.” Before iPSL, Darren had worked for many years for Nationwide, where he had several senior HR roles, including Head of Employee Relations and Head of Regional Brands. Since leaving iPSL, he has been Director of HR at HomeServe – a provider of emergency insurance cover and domestic repairs across Europe and the US – and award-winning social care and housing provider Look Ahead, based in London and the South East. “I’m really looking forward to my new role,” says Darren. “I thoroughly enjoyed my previous time here. The wider HR team was fantastic. “I am fully committed to a busy agenda and I’m sure that agenda hasn’t got any smaller! “After an initial induction, I hope to visit all of our Sites as soon as possible, so please take the time to introduce yourself to me.”
