Chair of Gloucestershire County Netball Association. Trustee of Active Gloucestershire. Passionate Forest Green Rovers supporter!
Providing tailored, straightforward and pragmatic HR advice to help you focus on growing your business.
Pay & Benefits
Disciplinary & Grievances
For smaller organisations, it's unusual to have a Human Resources function, so I provide this support as an outsourced service on an ad hoc basis. For my fixed-rate clients I create a package tailored to their needs.
Each year they can budget for my services safe in the knowledge that in addition to helping with longer term projects, I am essentially on-call to answer their queries and step in with additional support.
In an ideal world, the right staff would be hired every time and they would be happy, healthy assets to the business. Well, the best way to achieve that ideal is with appropriate planning and management, not hope.
I also provide support on a case-by-case basis in the fields of recruiting, training and dispute resolution.
A good place to start is the basic building blocks of an HR Assessment.
This means I'll go through what your business does for you, understand what people processes you might already have in place and flag up the areas where professional HR advice could help and add value. Think about it as being like an audit of your responsibilities, not unlike a stock check or annual accounts. So please get in touch to arrange a no obligation initial discussion.
I advise a varied range of clients on a wide range of HR matters including reviewing HR strategy and policies, apprenticeships, contracts of employment, pay, and coaching business leaders on dealing with dismissal and disciplinary situations.
A bit about me
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (FCIPD), with a Masters Degree in Strategic Human Resource Management. I'm also a Certified NLP Practitioner. I have over thirty years of senior level HR experience, dealing with an extremely varied range of complex, confidential and sensitive people management issues.
Sue was delighted to attend the recent charity dinner in aid of the Velindre Cancer Centre at the end of March, where Alan R. Jones & Sons Ltd presented a £3,000 cheque to support this worthy cause...
As Head of HR for a regional building society and local Housing Association, I devised and implemented strategic people plans working collaboratively with other senior leaders. I have also managed interim project assignments in reward, recruitment, and diversity and inclusion.
I'm a big sports fan so, in addition to running my own business, I carry out voluntary roles as Chair of Gloucestershire County Netball Association, Senior Trustee for Active Gloucestershire and member of the Advisory Board at Forest Green Rovers FC.
