Setting up an HR Consultancy and using social media with Aine Crilly

Do you ever need help to manage your staff or the people who work alongside you in your business?

Would you know where to turn to if you wanted to find out more about local policies and procedures in your industry?

In this week’s episode, I interview Aine Crilly, who owns an HR Consultancy called The HR Elephant in Newry, Northern Ireland. Aine and her team support business owners with recruitment and selection, education, CV building, and career guidance amongst other services. The HR Elephant was one of the sponsors of mine and Ashleigh Watson’s first ever Social Media Bootcamp, which took place in Belfast at the Titanic hotel on Friday, 31st May 2019. In this interview, you’ll learn about how Aine started her consultancy, about how she has leveraged social media to create and strengthen her online presence, and about how she is able to grow her business and work with a variety of clients both from the UK and Ireland, despite having two very young children!

You will learn…


  1. Why you need to keep learning and innovating in your business. 
  2. How collaborating with other trustworthy businesses is key to developing and growing your business. 
  3. Why you should post articles and share videos on LinkedIn. 

And as an added bonus, if you’re not familiar with the phrase, you’ll find out what ‘Irish twins’ are! 

More about Aine

You can find Aine on her website, The HR Elephant, on Facebook and LinkedIn.
