Sophie Austin

I’m responsible for the HR needs of all MHA Monahans colleagues, and this includes our working culture. I am highly motivated to make sure that we get the right values, ethics, and vision in place, to create a working environment in which employees can thrive and achieve success.

I ensure our people practices are focussed on creating a great working environment, enabling all our colleagues to thrive and grow, ultimately delivering a first class service for our clients.

I ensure that we have the right people in place to support the continued growth and success of the firm, providing innovative and leading edge solutions in a broad range of expertise.

I lead our external HR consultancy, providing commercial, tailored and pragmatic people solutions for SMEs.

My background

I have built my career within HR, working in both a generalist and specialist capacity.

I’ve held a variety of HR leadership roles, working with Board and Operational Executive teams in a variety of industry sectors in organisations of varying sizes.

I’m also a qualified Executive Coach and Business Mentor, having graduated with a MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change from Henley Business School.

Outside work, I love to spend my free time with my two teenage boys and my dog. I am passionate about travelling, reading, walking and food!

"Our experience with Monahan’s was very positive, we are really happy with the final project outcome and they were a joy to work with. Their approach was inclusive, adaptable and supportive to our organisational aims and the Trust staff found Sophie and her team to be knowledgeable, helpful and understanding of our requirements. The team from Monahan’s worked well with the Trust team and kept us updated throughout the project on progress and any findings / suggestions for improvement as they emerged. It was such a positive experience all round and I’m sure we will be in touch with them for further support."
