Their mission is to make business owners feel excited about running their business again. To guide you on HR related projects, set functional HR strategies that are tied to your business goals and objectives. Functional HR will take the stress out of business management to give back that competitive edge.

Functional HR is a tight knit team of two complementing schools of thought. Marcel Schwendeler (MBA/HR Masters) and Christina Moscovis (MClinPsych) have combined their strengths to deliver their service. Drawing from a strong organisational and technical background, Marcel has a unique talent in foresight and strategy. Christina’s neuroscientific approach with human behaviour and performance coaching accelerates individual outcomes and organisational wellbeing. After many long discussions, they arrived at the need to deliver a service to those who needed it the most... the small to medium players. Marcel and Christina are intimately connected with the wider business community in Newcastle NSW and draw upon this community to deliver perspective, experience and a cultural understanding of business in the Hunter Region.
