Bruce Wickens – Director

Following a career with a major international company in the automotive sector, where he worked mainly in HR but also manufacturing and product engineering, Bruce founded Bruce Wickens Associates in 1996. The business at that time provided HR support to a number of SMEs, which provided him with experience in understanding the needs of smaller businesses. Business activities with SMEs and larger businesses grew and the business name was changed to BWA People Ltd in 2008 and expanded its activities to provide a comprehensive range of services HR services to client companies.

As well as overseeing the overall operation of the business Bruce focuses on organisation design and development, performance management, employee relations, and disciplinary matters.

Outside of work Bruce spends time sailing and also teaching the Royal Yachting Association navigation courses – and also spending time with his grandchildren!
