Helping Business Owners
with all of their HR Needs

About


No one size fits all, so you need flexibility from an HR consultant, so that’s exactly what I provide.

Whether you need a fully outsourced solution or assistance with creating your HR goals to conducting interviews and appraisals, providing a new employment contract or employee handbook or maybe something in between – with over 20 years’ experience I can offer an efficient and personal HR service.
I help clients who are struggling with employee issues and feeling really fed-up! Employee issues are often urgent and stressful for both the manager and employee, and I can take that stress away from you.

WHO I WORK WITH
My clients are business owners and directors who are so busy running their business they do not have the time, desire or expertise to deal with employee matters. You have no in-house HR or just need an extra pair of handsto take that stress away.

Are you:
- Juggling too many hats as a business owner or director and stressed out by employee issues?
- Not sure whether you’ve got your HR basics right?
- Building your business, yet the pandemic has seen your margins decrease & you need to restructure?
- Struggling to find talent?
- Wasting valuable time on Google looking up ‘how to deal with a ‘grievance’?
- Waking up in the middle of the night worrying about your HR issues?

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT HR
Problem solving and finding a solution
Working in HR for over 20 years nothing surprises me, every day is different.

Your company may not possess all the skills & knowledge of an HR professional to deal successfully with employee relation issues and ignoring HR responsibilities and legalities could lead to a costly tribunal and we don’t want that!

I can offer a package specifically around your needs providing you with a clear focus on managing HR & employee issues.

I have worked within the following industries (but not exclusive to):
IT Software, Leisure, Technology, Logistics, Manufacturing, Recruitment, Education, Commercial Cleaning, Corporate Workwear, Printing, Shredding, Charity, Gardening Services and International Consultancy.

HIGHLY QUALIFIED
I am highly qualified and experienced and there is not much I haven’t handled in my HR career. In 2000 I set up a complete HR function for a new start-up company and was instrumental in growing the business from 5 employees to over 100 with a 98% talent retention rate.

DEMONSTRABLE RESULTS
Reducing sickness absence from 7% to 3%
Employee retention saving £000’s in recruitment costs
Managing employee issues saving £000’s in tribunal costs
Reducing business owner headaches and saving them £00’s in painkiller costs

I'd love to have a conversation to explore if we are a good fit for one another. Send me a message jo@jt-hrconsultancy.com or call 07715 026128

Change is unavoidable and that at some point every business will go through a period of transformation, whether it is relocating your business, restructuring or downsizing.

About Me


About MeAbout MeAbout Me
I think it is always good to know a little about the person, so this is the interesting stuff and a few facts about me:

  • In 1989, I resigned from my job and went to work in Rhodes, Greece for the Summer Season and in 1990, I headed to Australia on my own where I stayed for a year, working and travelling and continued backpacking for another 2½ years mainly around SE Asia and New Zealand visiting 16 countries. This gave me a passion for travel and to-date I have visited 100 countries and all 7 continents, Antarctica and South Georgia remain my favourites.
  • I started my HR career in 2000 when I joined a start up company and then founded JT HRConsultancy in 2014
  • In 2009 I gave up my career to be a holiday rep (on the bucket list and had to do it).  I worked in Egypt, Spain and Cape Verde and spent 7 weeks on a ship sailing up and down the Rhine and Moselle.
  • I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie and have bungee jumped and skydived in NZ, paraglided in Bolivia, parasailed in Rio, dived the Great Barrier Reef, abseiled in Argentina, flown a Tiger Moth to name a few of my favourites.  
  • I have a cat named Chablis and she did have a brother called Merlot (so yes, I like wine) and have known my best friend all my life, we grew up together and meet up every week for a walk and coffee.
