About Camino HR

Who Are Camino HR?

Jane Rawlins, our lead consultant, established Camino HR in 2009. After over a decade of providing HR Support and Consultancy services predominantly across Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, we are now increasingly providing outsourced HR support to businesses in other parts of the UK.

The word Camino means ‘path’ or ‘way’ in Spanish, and was inspired by the Camino de Santiago, the last part of which Jane walked with her then young family. It embodies the ethos of the company, which is to provide businesses with a path to the best possible HR practices, and to support and guide them on that journey.

Since Camino HR was founded, we have worked with businesses in every sector and of all shapes and sizes. From organisations just starting out with a handful of employees, to multinational companies. We pride ourselves on delivering professional, practical and personalised support to each of our clients.

Jane Rawlins

Founder and HR Consultant

Jane has worked as an HR consultant since 1991; she is a Chartered Member of the CIPD, a qualified Mediator and a long serving Lay Member on Employment Tribunals. She has an extensive background in industry and in higher education, both in operational HR and in strategic project management roles.

Although she loves the complexity and challenges of working with larger companies, she particularly enjoys working with smaller organisations to help them to manage and grow their businesses through their people.

Outside of running Camino HR, Jane enjoys life in the countryside, keeping chickens, pigs, and bees. She and her husband also like to explore the UK and further afield in their campervan.

Jane loves being surrounded by family and always looks forward to spending time with her three adult children, and, more recently, grandchildren!

Carrie Doney

HR Coordinator

Carrie originally worked for Camino when the business first started, helping with the administration and marketing.  9 years and two children later she returned in 2020 as HR Office Manager.

As well as her experience working in higher education and the NHS, Carrie has worked outside of HR in a variety of other industries. So she brings a strong understanding of working life from both an HR and an employee perspective. At Camino she deals with the day to day administrative and operational work and is very often the first point of contact for our clients, who all tell us how much they love working with her.

Carrie loves reading, spending time with friends and family, and her labrador puppy. She also really loves to laugh.

Deborah Westwood

HR Consultant

Debbie is a Chartered Member of the CIPD and brings a wealth of practical experience and knowledge. Debbie joined us from her position as HR Manager for a Lincoln based manufacturing company. Prior to that she worked in HR within retail, contact centres and distribution.

Originally from Leeds, Debbie has lived in the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire area for the last 30 years. However she still has strong family ties with Yorkshire and still thinks of herself as a Yorkshire lass! 

Outside of work, Debbie likes to read autobiographies and travel, particularly touring Europe and walking around the British countryside and coastline. She enjoys gardening, but admits that success in that area is hit and miss, and she may need more time before she can call herself green-fingered.

Sarah Window

HR Coordinator

Sarah is experienced in people management and the frontline delivery of HR and has held roles in many sectors encompassing HR, recruitment and payroll.  She is also well versed in project work.  Sarah is driven by her passion for people and enjoys problem solving.

Personally, Sarah is family oriented and enjoys travelling. She recently spent time living overseas in Kenya, quite the contrast from her seaside hometown of Lowestoft.
