HR Consultant

Christine Gaskell

When not advising chief executives and management boards, Christine is often to be found among the lemon trees in the orchards surrounding the house in what she calls her favourite place in the world – Majorca. Christine is currently renovating her home near Puerto Pollensa on the Balearic isle’s northern shore.

“After 17 years on the board at Bentley Motors, it’s often here in Majorca that I can find total peace and tranquillity. But The People Pool offers me the opportunity to roll up my sleeves and advise a whole new range of clients on those tricky areas in which I have built up a wealth of experience over my professional career.”

At Bentley, Christine was responsible for more than 4,000 staff worldwide. It was there that she honed her considerable expertise in change management, employer relations, organisational change and succession planning, all the time while operating in a heavily unionised environment.

On top of that considerable responsibility, Christine still found the time to explore other avenues, some of which led her to become a Deputy Lieutenant of Cheshire and the current Chair of Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership. A prolific music and theatre fan, she also sits on the Board of Manchester’s iconic Halle Orchestra.


But even after all that, it’s the grassroots stuff that still matters most. Christine is a passionate advocate for apprenticeships and is committed to helping the professional development of young people and expanding the opportunities available to them across the UK.
