Kelly Knight

I'm a chartered HR practitioner & Fellow of the IPA, with 23 years’ experience. I have championed HR initiatives for both AMV BBDO and the wider creative industry for the last 12.5 years. In 2012, I represented the industry and the IPA on the Creative Skillset Working Party to develop the first ever advertising apprenticeship and I sat on the Employer's Group responsible for developing the Advertising & Media Exec standard.

I am a member of the IPA's Future of Talent Strategy Group, and I sit on the Creative Pioneers Board. I am also a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Apprenticeships and have been a judge for BIMA Talent Awards & People Management Awards.

I've worked for AMV BBDO since the summer of 2006. The key focus of my role is to deliver strategic and operational HR services to the business, which includes: improving operational efficiencies across the HR & Payroll functions, management of restructuring projects, the management of complex ER cases, the management of TUPE cases, performance management, delivering diversity and inclusion initiatives, accountability for immigration and overall responsibility for the sponsorship license and management of occupational Health cases. In addition to supporting the London office, I’m also responsible for providing strategic and operational HR Services to the EMEA head office and UK operations.
