Nathan is the owner of Horizon Solicitors and Horizon HR Consultants.
Nathan began his career as an Employment Law Solicitor in 1998 after completing a law degree at Lancaster University where he was awarded the Ceiba Geigy Prize for employment law. After 9 years in private practice, helping hundreds of individuals and businesses, Nathan joined DHL in 2007 where he progressed to Senior Legal Counsel and TUPE Practice Lead. Nathan made an important contribution to supporting the business in all aspects of Employment Law but specialising in complex TUPE transfers. Nathan also provided strategic support and guidance on the business approach to the introduction of new legislation and ER issues including trade union disputes and recognition claims.
In 2012 Nathan took a lateral step into human resources to broaden his horizons and work more closely with the business and its employees, at a strategic level. He took on the role of HR Business Partner working in DHL’s Engineering and Manufacturing sector. Nathan undertook a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management where he achieved a First and was awarded Student of the Year by the CIPD / DeMontfort University. Nathan took a particular interest in employee engagement and through his research made a number of recommendations which were adopted by the business to support the increase in employee engagement and he represented DHL in the Transactional to Transformational Employee Engagement Consortium with Engage for Success.
In 2016 Nathan joined DHL’s Retail sector as a HR Business Partner on the Marks and Spencer contract where he lead on high level employee relations issues including sensitive collective redundancy and TUPE consultations, negotiation and implementing network wide change initiatives and policy improvements. During his time at DHL, Nathan developed, implemented and facilitated a number of employee and management training and development programmes.
Following DHL’s regionalisation of HR, Nathan decided to leave and set up his own HR Consultancy business and Employment Law Solicitors’ Practice.
Outside of work, Nathan has had a string of hobbies including windsurfing, paragliding, sailing, bee keeping and cycling!
