“Gill’s expertise, experience and skills are essential to us. We are not a big employer but our staff are key to our mission. Gill is pragmatic, understands what we need and helps us balance the competing demands of wanting to do the best by people with sticking to what we can reasonably manage for an organisation of our size in the sector we work in. It makes absolute sense to have Gill to call on, her advice is available, affordable and accessible.”
“I’ve been working with Gill since I began as Chief Executive at Greenwich Students Union. Gill helped lead a strategic HR review and change process that has led to a new pay framework, new contracts, improved policies and a new staff handbook. We also worked together to embed our Values into our organisation Behaviours that we are able to test during annual performance reviews.
Gill is clear, provides a strong steer when needed and is very flexible with our needs.
It’s a pleasure to work with Gill.”
