 I really needed some support with staffing and managing challenging situations, Mandy made the process clear, calm and professional, she is incredibly skilled at what she does.  


If you are looking for help with ANYTHING to do with HR, staffing or hiring someone I would 100% recommend Mandy. It made such an impact on my business to have her as a professional guiding me through a process to find a resolution.  


It can be hard running a business on your own and having HR support on your side is not always the first investment you think of but working with Mandy is worth every penny".

"Initially I thought it was a bit expensive for HR advice. But, having read some horror stories of people who didn't have the right advice I decided to find out more about it. 


After I spoke to Mandy I felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. Mandy gave me a clear action plan and answered all my questions. I was given template letters for the disciplinary meeting which saved me a lot of time and worry. 


I now have peace of mind, which is invaluable and my issue is resolved. So by the end it wasn't a cost, it was actually a bargain. I would highly recommend this service to any small business owner.
