Helen has acted for me as HR Consultant for a number of years. I have always found her advice accurate, sound and professional. What I really like is that Helen always goes further than explaining the legal position. She listens to the problem and offers real life solutions. With Helen’s guidance we have never been taken to an employment tribunal and, indeed, have often resolved disputes with goodwill on both sides, the employee remaining in our employment and becoming an even better employee.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Helen on many HR communications projects at numerous organisations. She is a hands-on and energetic HR Leader, who seems to be able to get right under the skin of what is required in each organisation, both within the private and the not-for-profit sectors. Her calm and level-headed approach, combined with a clear focus on her ultimate objective, make her a joy to work with.

Helen has been our HR Consultant for the past 8 years. She designed our HR policies and procedures and contracts of employment, and successfully managed a number of disciplinary and performance issues, including negotiating a settlement agreement with a senior manager. Helen is quick thinking and practical, and her work stands the test of time. She has coached me to manage some potentially contentious employment issues, which without her involvement could have become major business distractions.
Ian Meiers, Managing Director, Cad & The Dandy
‘Exceptionally dedicated’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Helen. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Helen for 6 years, during which we worked together at CACHE as Executive Directors. Above all, I was impressed by Helen’s ability to direct the business positively, acting in a professional manner at all times, and with integrity. Helen would be a true asset for any business requiring HR related direction or support, and she comes with my heartfelt recommendation.
