Meet the Founder

Our customers benefit from Jenefer’s experience working for 20 years in Human Resources, consulting with small and medium sized businesses.

She established Silk Helix Ltd in 2019 as a result of her growing frustration at how so many of the big players in the HR services industry were only providing legal answers.

The key has to be to build deeper relationships with our clients, getting to know their businesses and offering a truly personal service. We believe that HR should not be treated merely as compliance function.

HR and human society have long been passions of Jenefer’s. After studying Human Resource Management and Sociology at Keele University, she achieved her level 7 CIPD qualification, a Masters in Personnel and Development with Westminster University. She is also a Chartered Member of the CIPD.

Since completing her Masters, Jenefer has been working as a HR Consultant, supporting SMEs with all their HR needs. She has worked extensively in the salon industry, care sector, schools, nurseries, construction, retail, professional services and hospitality.

She has an excellent knowledge of employment law, with broad experience applying this knowledge in a wide range of industries. Your commercial objectives are as important to her as they are to you, whether it’s getting your HR strategy right to get the best performance from all your people or resolving a specific employee issue.

Jenefer quickly gets to know your business, your unique challenges and what you’re trying to achieve.

Her experience, knowledge and passion really comes through when she is delivering training or presenting seminars. Training sessions delivered by Jenefer are interactive and packed full of real life examples, with plenty of opportunity to discuss your challenges and experiences.

Outside of work, Jenefer is mum to two teen and pre-teen children, one who is wonderfully neurodivergent with an interesting mix of diagnosis and assessments we’re waiting in line for. This personal experience has led Jenefer to study neurodiversity and understand the impact in the workplace.
