Testimonials

“I hired Matthew when i won the contract in Medical and Healthcare Regulatory Agency and i have had transferred the cleaner under TUPE to us who wasn’t providing the services as contracted with client. Matt helped us through the ACAS and because the performance from cleaner didn’t change we had to dismiss her, this caused us to be responded in Employment Tribunal where i successfully won. Matt is expert in ACAS and i wouldn’t hesitate to use him again”

Peter Plencner – Managing Director – Quality Never Goes Out Of Style

 

“I had met Matthew many times whilst networking and he was always very pleasant and helpful.  When I needed my employment contracts rewriting he was the obvious choice to do this for me.  I was so glad I made this decision as less than a year later, I unfortunately needed to use the “Restrictive Covenant”.  This enabled me to seek a solicitor and win the case I was faced with.  If it wasn’t for Matthew and his broad knowledge, it would not have been such a successful outcome.”

Caroline Howell – Arch Gardening – Owner

I would have no hesitation recommending Matthew to you and believe he would make a major contribution to your business”

“Matthew was my main point of contact at Veolia Water where I designed and ran many programmes to meet their needs over the 5 years I was at Campus Veolia. Matthew was always an inspiration to work with- giving a full and clear definition of the business needs, arranging the appropriate SME’s for me to meet with to design and sign off the training materials. He also ensured the training venue was set up correctly( often coming to check the detail personally) and we developed a good working relationship. He was also a great help with the Riyadh project which I was seconded to manage when he left Veolia. I would not hesitate in recommending him as a highly motivated professional detail conscious HR Manager with the personal touch so often missing in our profession.”

“I have known Matt for several years and have always found him to be thoroughly professional in his approach and in his knowledge of all HR matters and employment law.”

Andy G

 

“When we first dipped our toes in the murky waters of employing our first member of staff we made the mistake of doing some fairly informal interviews and just agreeing terms – how naïve we were! Fortunately, Matt came to our rescue and explained the advantages for both us and the applicant of conducting planned and structured interviews. Matt has continued to guide us on from there through employment regulations, the dreaded health and safety laws and requirements, agreements with contractors and fair benefits for employees. This means that now we and our employees can relax in the knowledge that everything has been correctly organised and we are not going to be taken to court for an error we didn’t even know we’d made! Matt oversees and advises us on any new changes in legislation and allows us to get on with what we do best while he takes care of HR. Thank you Matt for keeping us legal, saving us time and money and for looking after us and our staff!”
