I had the pleasure of working with Sarah when we were taking our first steps towards hiring an employee. It was a dark area of unknown for me, so I needed an expert who understood that we were small and feeling our way. Sarah was like a shining light through all of the unknowns. At the end of our meeting we had a full idea of what we needed to do, what we didn’t have to worry about, and how long it was all going to take.

Since then, Sarah has advised us countless times, checked over our job advert and drawn up an employment contract.

I am going to avoid platitudes, suffice to say, we have an HR company looking after us now, and of course it is Mayday HR. If you are considering speaking to an HR person, then stop right now and speak to Sarah. It’s not just hat you won’t regret it, it’s that if you don’t you’ll never know peace of mind like it.

As a young entrepreneur, with no prior experience of hiring and maintaining a team, being able to discuss things with Sarah has taken a huge weight off my mind. She not only explains every decision making process, followed by the correct procedure, she also adds a personal touch. By explaining what she might do and what outcomes could come of that. She also strives to understands my business and my needs, before working on possible solutions and then offers tangible options/outcomes.I highly recommend working with Sarah, whatever journey you may be on. My team have been much happier since working I’ve worked with her! Thank you Sarah!
