I offer a range of bespoke HR services that are tailored to the individual needs of your company.
I understand that for many HR issues can be time consuming and often overwhelming. I can support you with your HR needs enabling you to focus on achieving your business objectives. Whether you are an established company or just starting out, the process is straight forward - we discuss your business and your individual HR requirements and agree a HR solution that fits.
I can support you with any aspect of the employment cycle from start to finish, whether you require assistance with day to day HR issues or support to resolve a more complex case.
If you require advice on policies and procedure, recruitment and selection, employee engagement, resolution of individual casework, performance management or you would like a general HR health check I can provide expert independent support and guidance from start to finish.
Whether you are a new or well established company I understand that HR processes and procedures can be daunting and at times frustrating.
Given the frequent changes to employment law and employer responsibilities employers often find themselves having to spend more time reading up on employment legislation and dealing with people issues than they would ideally like. This in turn can have a negative impact on workload and potentially productivity. Whether you need on-going support or guidance regarding a specific case I can support you with a range of HR issues such as:
HR Health Check / Audit
HR Project Work
Policies and Procedures
Disciplinary / Grievance
Attendance and Absence
Recruitment and Selection Process
Recruitment and Selection Strategy
Redundancy and Restructure Support
Why bother with HR? Just a small investment from you can reap massive benefits for your organisation.
I can support you to reduce your people costs by:
Providing support and guidance to staff through policies and procedures
Recruiting the best candidates
Listening to staff feedback and implementing suggestions
Minimising sickness absence
Dealing with poor performance
Dealing effectively with grievances
Managing staff turnover
Providing guidance through periods of change
With over 13 years experience in the world of HR, my most recent role being as Head of HR with a well known charity, I am thoroughly familiar with the pressures that organisations face.
For me personally my passion is supporting others with their people management. As an independent HR Consultant I pride myself on giving my clients the time that they deserve, ensuring that they receive excellent customer service throughout. I genuinely believe that every organisation is different and that is why I am dedicated to providing completely bespoke materials that reflect the ethos of each individual organisation. I apply the same due care and attention to each case I am involved in.
I believe in life long learning and I strive to keep my knowledge up to date. In terms of qualifications I first gained a Master of Arts in English Literature at the University of Glasgow before deciding to specialise in Human Resource Management. I then went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management at Napier University. I followed this with a Specialist Paralegal Qualification in Employment Law with the University of Strathclyde.
I am a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)
In a world where for most businesses change is the status quo it is evermore important to ensure that you have access to friendly and reliable support to assist you by lightening the load or to guide you through difficult situations.
I’m here whenever you need me.
