Our Founder 

Bamberry was founded by Karen Berry LLB who started her career in law and then followed her interests to move into executive recruitment, training and coaching.  She began recruiting in financial services for GAAPs Group and HW Group working with top tier global clients, followed by 15 years in the public sector as a senior management for Elite Recruitment Specialist and IG Interims.

Prior to founding Bamberry, Karen spent 4 working in the not for profit sector for Peabody Trust and Shaw Trust in some of the most economically challenged areas of London leading on the delivery of projects to help break down barriers and improve life outcomes for disadvantaged young people.

Karen is also co-founder of Aspiring for Children, a training company which works with professionals to drive change and improve educational outcomes for vulnerable children and young people: www.aspiringforchildren.co.uk.  This training offers an exciting programme that really can help to close the huge educational attainment gap experience by vulnerable children.
