Working with us means that you get a truly people-centred experience rather than a purely procedural approach to HR and to business. That’s why we’re a people business for business people.
Building trusted and lasting relationships with our clients is key to what we do – we make it our business to get know you and your business because we want you to have the very best experience with us. We appreciate that every client has different needs. We regard our contracts with our clients as journeys where we get to travel with you to support you through the roadworks and the fast lane too. It’s not always about problem-solving, although we’re experts at that! It’s also about helping you to grow your business by ensuring that you have the right people in the right place at the right time.
Meet the Team
Our strategy is simple. We combine our excellent people skills, our professionalism, our approachability and our philosophy of treating others as we would expect to be treated ourselves, with a first class, quality service.
I escape with my hubby, Bill, as often as we can, in our caravan to enjoy peace and quiet and the beautiful Scottish scenery!
On a personal note, I am a working mum to my son, Nathan. I enjoy going on bear hunts in country parks, trips to the seaside (mostly for the ice-cream!) and I support him to navigate and explore the world and grow into whoever he wants to be. As for myself, I love music and believe life should have a soundtrack.
My style is facilitative rather than directive. I like to build relationships with clients in order to fully understand their business and therefore provide solutions which have practical application in the workplace.
I have 2 girls and a partner Gary who keep me busy! I enjoy spending time with them – walking, socialising, cooking, visiting places of interest and the odd bit of retail therapy.
As well as having a keen interest in HR I enjoy travelling and cooking and chilling out on the sofa at night, watching movies with my partner.
My work life, which has extended over half a century, involved Education, Telecommunications and latterly the NHS. I still have some energy left and am happy to involve myself in the day to day running of this very exciting enterprise, along with a vibrant team of consultants.
As well as breaks in our caravan, when we have the opportunity Alison and I escape to warmer climes, and have a real soft spot for the Caribbean.
As a BSc graduate, I have complemented my skills with a vocational third sector career spanning in excess of 30 years. .
I support organisations towards business effectiveness & individuals to achieve challenging personal goals.
I have experience of operating across HR, corporate services, customer services and library and information services, namely within local and central government and financial services. I regularly work with the Association of Public Service Excellence delivering training and support to operational managers and am involved in performance appraisal and the review of the people and customer aspects of service delivery.
