bonafide hr Scotland

As a human resource company supporting the creative industry, we have in recent years witnessed Scotland’s growing economy and how it is transforming and shaping Scotland.

At bonafide hr Scotland we want to take this opportunity to travel together on this journey. To celebrate the diversity of people, culture, its food, the beauty of its countryside, to learn and absorb and through doing so, support small and medium sized enterprises in the creative space. To develop and to bring to life innovation and ideas.

A message from Ailsa Suttie

Scotland’s long tradition of industry and innovation remains as strong today as it has ever been.

From its historic reputation in the world of financial services, publishing to fintech, to becoming a leader in the gaming arena, Scotland has a rich commercial diversity. Recognised as the Agile Space Capital of the World, the sky may no longer be the limit for how far we can go!

At bonafide hr we are drawn to the vibrance and energy we see pulsing within the Scottish business community. We have a passion for the creative industries and celebrate innovation in all that we do.

My name is Ailsa and I am from Scotland. I returned home after some years in London and what I bring to you is years of senior level human resource experience gained within the hospitality, luxury retail, media and marketing services sectors.
