Carrie GoodwinGroup Communications Manager, Crown Prosecution Service, South Yorkshire and Humberside
Kathryn is everything you need in a HR adviser. She is approachable, accessible, incredibly knowledgeable, and when things get tough she is indestructible. Definitely the woman to have on hand to provide proactive HR direction and reactive HR guidance.
Andrew NikerOperations Manager, Nupark
Kathryn and I both provided Consultancy support to Care UK, specifically the establishment of the GP and Out Of Hours Services within the Rotherham Community Health Centre. It was a complex project which required someone with a good knowledge of HR practice and employment/TUPE expertise in particular. Kathryn quickly established herself as the focal point for all HR related activity and her knowledge and hard work allowed issues to be resolved in a timely fashion. Kathryn’s tremendous organisational skills along with the ability to prioritise issues ensured that the project was completed on time and within budget.
Allan MilburnManaging Director, IT Installations
We recently went through a TUPE situation on a BT contract and found Kathryn a great help in something that was very new to us. Kathryn also provides ongoing support to our HR Administrator, and I would recommend any company to use her.
Pepe TozzoDirector, Capex Health
Kathryn provided me with HR consultancy during a particularly difficult time. The company was hiring and firing at an intense rate so our HR policy had to be solid, defensible and swift to operate. Without Kathryn we would have come unstuck on many occasions and I was very impressed with the swiftness with which we received responses and dependable advice.
Matthew YoungManaging Director, Integrity Property Management
I endorse Kathryn for HR consulting and HR support. When I required her help, the advice she provided was spot on, delivered within time and on budget.
Stuart McClarnanDirector, SJM Fresh Produce
I recently had a HR situation develop which I didn’t know how to handle and Kathryn provided practical advice which resolved the situation quickly. I also realised through talking to Kathryn that I needed employment contracts for my staff and she implemented a solution that met with current legislation and protected my business. Kathryn also provided us with a simple Employee Handbook which means that my employees now know where to look for information, rather than asking me, and it gives me peace of mind that they all receive exactly the same information, avoiding confusion. The service I have received has been efficient and friendly and I would certainly recommend Kathryn to guide you in the right direction or for reviews of your current contracts of employment.
Janet ClaytonSenior HR Advisor, Crown Prosecution Service, Northern Region
Kathryn worked with the CPS on a Consultancy basis while the HR team went through a period of change. Kathryn is reliable, knowledgeable and her customers spoke highly of the level of support she provided to them. She is a good team player and was always willing to assist the other HR Advisors with their cases and workload.
Robert JohnsonDirector, Johnson Estates Limited
Kathryn makes herself available, for even the smallest of queries, and provides helpful support and assistance in the ever changing area of employment regulations. Given that HR can be complicated, Kathryn presents her advice in a concise and understandable manner and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
