Personal HR Service

I was involved in a complex and sensitive Redundancy process with my previous company with whom I had been a partner for many years.

Annette led me through the process and coached me in all my verbal and written communications with the company.

Her extensive legal knowledge and procedural experience in conjunction with her empathy for my personal circumstances helped me to understand and manage this stressful period in my life.

Annette’s calm and positive attitude to my personal issues made me feel in control of the situation and I was able to move confidently forward at each stage.

Health and Safety – private

No matter how dangerous the sport, members can be protected from physical hazards presented by the any sport or environment. We always aim to have a safe sport but following our Health and safety procedures before each season and during each gathering reminds us of the hazards involved.

Annette created our field sport risk assessments, safe systems of work and member’s letters which cover every aspect of the sport, are easy to use and very practical. Annette also ensures that we remember to conduct our annual review of the process to ensure that all the documents remain current.

We were very pleased that Annette could help the club take the headache out of Health and Safety for us.

Human Resources and Health and Safety

This testimonial is based on my professional working association with Annette from the mid 1990s to 2001 and subsequently in a support capacity following my retirement.

My full time position was Chief Engineer at Rigid Paper Ltd, a local paper manufacturer where Annette was employed as Human Resources Manager.

During this period Annette provided advice and guidance on personnel and Health and Safety matters in relation to the running of my Engineering Department which involved both maintenance and capital engineering works carried out by our own staff, supplemented by specialist contractors.

Annette was enthusiastic, worked hard and could always be relied upon to provide and present advice and solutions in a professional manner. This was invaluable in ensuring that my Department ran smoothly thus avoiding any serious issues involving personnel. Her work with Health and Safety in respect of engineering tasks demonstrated a sound understanding of the problems associated with running the Department.

Annette produced advice and solutions in a prompt and effective manner both written and verbal. Her in-depth knowledge and understanding of her profession generated a confidence in those with whom she worked.

Following my retirement from full time employment, I continued in a part time engineering consultancy role for the same employer and have worked with Annette from time to time providing related support to her work.
