Who we are.

Human Leadership is led by Orlagh Hunt working with a trusted network of deep-experts and specialists in both Ireland and the UK.


Orlagh is one of the Ireland’s and the UK’s most high profile and experienced People Directors, and has worked in diverse sectors from retail and FMCG to financial.

Prior to setting up Human Leadership Orlagh was most recently the Chief People Officer for AIB during a time of unprecedented change in the bank. Under her leadership the HR function was centralized and transformed. She led the HR team to reduce group-wide headcount by circa 3000 and implemented reward changes that secured €100 million of savings over 3 years. This change was driven in a heavily unionised environment. In the same period AIB also delivered the single biggest increase in employee engagement over a 2-year period in Europe, as measured by Gallup for their European clients.


As Group HR and Customer Director for RSA, Orlagh was part of the Executive team that delivered consistent profits; 8% average annual growth in tough economic conditions. She achieved world-class employee engagement within 3 years as measured by Gallup. Under her leadership RSA achieved 6th place in The Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work for in 2012 in first year of entry.


She is passionate about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. She was recognised as one of WXN 25 most powerful women in Ireland in 2014. Orlagh is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and holds BA Hons Jurisprudence from Oxford University.
