HR is what we get out of bed in the morning for – and it’s why we set up Cajun in 2011. As experienced business and HR professionals, we have a wealth of expertise across a number of sectors and with a wide range of different businesses. Although we have several years under our belts, we’re just as passionate and driven as we were when we first started our careers.

We believe it’s that mix of expertise and enthusiasm that makes us pretty special. As one of our clients, you will receive a refreshingly different experience. A down-to-earth, strategic partner that grows with you, your team’s needs, and your company vision. Together, we’ll always have your business’s best interests at heart. We’ll share the role of HR with you, to help ensure your team runs smoothly while you focus on the bigger stuff – because that business doesn’t run itself, right?


A bit about Kate Kelk - ASSOC.CIPD

Kate's specialism is in HR management and operations – that's policy, contracts, performance management and HR software to you and me. Before setting up Cajun HR with Jenny, she worked in HR roles for The John Lewis Partnership, HMV Media Group, and Deloitte.

A bit about Jenny Smallman - ASSOC.CIPD

An excellent commercial and strategic HR business partner, Jen is skilled in a wealth of HR, operational and managerial areas. Before Cajun, Jenny led a large HR team at Kurt Geiger. She prides herself on her ability to get the best out of employees and thrives when she’s helping businesses improve their performance through their people.

How Kate keeps things fresh

Kate is a history buff, a governor at a local secondary school, and a very keen genealogist. You’ll find her with a good book and a large glass of wine most evenings.



Jen is a breath of fresh air

Jen has an impressive and extensive knowledge of lip gloss and shoes. She sings in a small group, is obsessed with veggie food, and loves nothing more than cooking and eating delicious dishes with friends and family.



Refreshingly at-the-ready

Described as the “zoomiest dog ever” by his dog walker – he likes chasing squirrels and stealing cheese baguettes from small children. Kate once said he was “the tiniest puppy she had ever seen” – very rudely! We love him and he keeps us sane.
