When we took on our first employee earlier this year, Kat made sure we had a proper employment contract in place and gave some great advice on other things we should be doing (and not doing). It's a pretty daunting process getting the right people on board and then looking after them so they stay! Kat really put me at ease without baffling me with legal/HR jargon and I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again as and when needed in the future.

I first spoke to Kat just before I took on my first employee, with it being my first employee I had many questions. Kat answered them all and gave me so much advice on what I should and shouldn't be dong. She wrote my employment contract which is absolutely fantastic. I've even had a few questions since then and she's always answered the phone and helped me out. She's great at her job but an even better person

I just wanted to say how amazing Kat is. I had a question and she responded in double quick time and with perfect HR advice.

I have recently been enquiring about on setting on an Apprentice Business Administrator to help me on the day to day running of the office in addition to setting up an approved training center where the intention is to use freelance tutors.

For both I need the correct systems and procedures in place including a contract of employment and service level agreement.

Whilst doing my research Kat’s name came up on more than one occasion as the go to and after meeting her at the recent Elite Business Academy Live, I knew she would be a perfect fit, it helped we’re both Yorkshire folk too!

Kat produced both documents to the brief in a timely and professional manner and I have no hesitation in recommending Kats services or using her for all my future HR needs.

Thanks Kat, fantastic service!

Kat helped me to write new terms and conditions for my trainers. I tried to create my own using bits I found from other sources but after thinking they were great, they didnt stand up legally which costed me big time. Kat has many recommendations and was very good understanding what I was looking for and after booking a call, the terms and conditions were created in no time. I now have legal backing to stop my trainers from ruining my business and costing me customers, time and money. Highly recommend and will be coming back to Kat again.

Kat and her team are fantastic!

They've helped me with employment contracts and through making an employee redundant.

The whole process was smooth and their communication is great.

Haydon Turner-White - 28/01/2022

I was looking to update my freelancer contracts, i.e. agreements with self-employed contractors, and Kat reviewed my current agreements and gave me advice on what was needed. Kat then produced the Contractor Agreement tailored to my specific requirements.

I can be a difficult customer at times as I am quite picky in my requirements, but Kat coped with this and did an excellent job of producing a Contractor Agreement that was suitable for my needs, and clearly sets out the terms and conditions between the parties.

I would definitely recommend her HR services.

Robert Mellors - 07/12/2021

We used Kat's services to create us a bespoke full time employment contract for our business.

The whole process from start to finish was AMAZING.

Her team made sure that the contract was perfect for our requirements and added in aspects that we personally needed in the contract.

Really pleased with the service and would use again and again.

Not only that but she is always on hand for help and advice when needed.

Laura Burnett - 04/07/2021

After employing my first staff member I reached out to Kat for advice on what I needed to do next.

Kat was really informative and explained everything needed to not only be legally compliant but to ensure the best protection for not only me but my staff as well.

Kat then produced all the documentation I needed with clear guidance on how to fill it all in, who needed giving what and how to ensure everything was kept up to date.

If you need advice and help with HR definately speak to Kat.
