A HR manager at Premiership football club Manchester United has launched her own business.

Ellie Levens, who is based in Lymm, Cheshire, has set up Exponential HR with the goal of helping to transform businesses through the quality of their people and processes.

Prior to Manchester United, Levens worked for a number of SMEs in the North West, including Saica Paper UK and Plastic Omnium.

"I am hugely excited about stepping out on my own and working with businesses across the region," she said.

"I am passionate about showing business owners and their senior management teams how they can get the most from the right HR processes and practices.

"By having the best people and practices in place, a business can invest more time in planning and achieving growth and improved productivity."

Levens spent a year and three months at Manchester United as HR manager.
