Liberty HR Recruitment

Be true, be kind, be free.

Here at Liberty HR Recruitment we take the subject of your career seriously. We understand the gravity of what it is that you entrust to us, and we treat it with the care it deserves.

And if you’re putting your very own ‘Dream Team’ together, then you’ve come to the right place. We can match your requirements with the pick of the highest calibre talent available.

But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

Our Standards

We take pride in our personal touch when placing everyone from trainees up to senior level HR professionals in all industries. We endeavour to act with kindness, integrity and sincerity at all times.

We want to be the first people you call when you are ready for your next career move and with the experience to fully understand the market, we can alleviate the stress and pressure involved in landing your perfect role.

Here at Liberty HR, our favourite definition of the term ‘liberty’ is being in control of one’s life and determining one’s own fate; so we’ll give you the power of independence and put you firmly in control.

We understand that a trusting relationship is essential between a client and recruiter. Our CIPD qualified HR & Recruitment specialists have decades of experience in filling HR, Talent Acquisition and Learning & Development roles.

Meet Our Team

By way of an introduction, we’d like you to meet the small (but perfectly formed)
Liberty HR Recruitment team.


Jane Barry

Managing Director

Liberty HR Recruitment founder, Jane Barry, is an FCIPD qualified HR professional and recruitment specialist who has worked in the sector for over 20 years. She has previously been Chair of the Portsmouth CIPD group and is the current Chair of the Wessex Branch of the CIPD.

Specialising in HR, Talent and Learning & Development roles, Jane has an eye for detail and a meticulous approach. Everyone who knows Jane will testify to her warmth as a person and her passion for everything that she does, including her near-legendary  ‘To Do’ lists..

Jane carries a small photograph of the handsome singer and song-writer Billy Bragg in her purse, hoping he will one day call and whisk her away. In the meantime she lives in Southsea with her husband Den, their three dogs and three cats.


Den Barry


Liberty HR Recruitment co-founder Den Barry, is our multi-talented social media and communications guru. He has previously worked in a similar capacity for a charity, a social enterprise and for other recruitment organisations, prior to the launch of Liberty HR Recruitment.

We describe Den as ‘multi-talented’ as he is a published author, the drummer in a band and Chair of Trustees at Toucan Diversity Training, where he also occasionally delivers disability equality training to local employers.

When not busy with any of these duties, Den can be found making tea and coffee for the team, ticking off completed tasks from assorted ‘To Do’ lists he’s been given and checking that Billy Bragg isn’t at the front door.

Lydia Liberty

Lydia Bennett

HR Recruitment Resourcer

Lydia has a wide breadth of knowledge with more than two years of recruitment experience, recruiting for roles in HR as well as other sectors. 

Enjoying recruitment comes easy to Lydia as she thrives making lasting and meaningful business relationships. She takes enormous pride in her work and strives to complete everything to exacting standards. 

Luckily for the Liberty HR team, Lydia is an avid baker and enjoys putting her own spin on recipes. Rumour has it that the office will often be filled with her trial and error bakes!   

She also has two beautiful little pet mice named Luna and Minnie who she admits to obsessing over. Lydia spends a great deal of her spare time crafting toys for them to enjoy. Den is hoping she doesn’t bring her pets into the office as he would quickly be found taking refuge by standing on an office chair!
