I create efficient and effective HR functions, the structures, policies, processes, and systems that add value and support employees to get the most from their working lives.

It’s not just about creating a solid employment base of policies and processes, I support the creation and articulation of culture, values and frameworks that support optimum performance, reward, diversity, welfare, wellbeing, talent, succession and learning and development.

These are the conditions that enable employees to thrive and managers to get on with what they do best - running your business. 

I work with a variety of companies, SME and larger businesses offering flexible options and tailored packages, to suit the circumstances and budgets of my clients.
