E-commerce and digital agency Visualsoft has appointed Alix Bolton as Head of People.

As part of this new role, Alix will lead on shaping and developing the organisation’s people strategy, as well as implementing and embedding HR policies and procedures, which ensure that the organisation’s culture is aligned with its plans for growth.

The company already has an impressive employee benefits package, with fully flexible hours and unlimited holidays, so I’m looking forward to building on this and developing its people practices further to truly make Visualsoft a great place to work.”

Our people are at the heart of everything we do and so she will play an instrumental role in helping to shape and manage our people strategies so that we can continue to attract, develop and support the very best in talent.”
