Ijeoma Ucheibe, SPHRi


Creating content as a lawyer and HR professional, marketing books online and blogging about literature.

Long before her name became synonymous with #NaijaHRChicSeries with Ijeoma Ucheibe, she worked as a human capital officer at Signtura Outsource Limited and is currently the Business Manager at Foundation Chambers, Lagos – a flagship law firm with niche areas in international transportation and energy.

Many of my colleagues have described me as empathetic, smart, resourceful and a team player. One of my strongest suits is making sure the employee fulfils their potential while helping the bottomline of every organisation I work at and with. In my years of experience in a management role, I have learned quite a bit from my various experiences and understand that the employee always comes first for an organisation to excel.

I am respected by my colleagues and management for my expertise in visualizing the big picture and translating vision into a reality by providing directional leadership and transforming organizations into the high-performance culture.

I talk about human resources related content and it’s interaction with the law on YouTube – #NaijaHRChicSeries with Ijeoma Ucheibe   where I attempt to tackle thorny issues facing organisations and HR professionals in the workplace of today.

On the last Sundays of the month, I volunteer my time with Mainland Book Café, a book club in Lagos and also talk about African Literature in my spare time at The Bagus NG and also review books in Pidgin on YouTube and via a podcast on Spotify & Anchor.

Interested in discussing mutually beneficial opportunities and collaborations, let’s have a conversation at ijeomaucheibe@gmail.com.
