Having spent almost three decades with the firm, Lisa Rose is Accenture’s new head of HR in its UK and Ireland wing. Rose joins the UKI leadership team, and will now lead the firm’s HR teams across the two countries.

Speaking on the news, Rose said, “It’s comes at an exciting time as our highly-skilled people embrace new ways of working to connect together, and we recruit and develop more technology skills to grow for the future.”
