Who we work with
What our customers say
Natalie is our HR expert, providing us with professional HR support and advice, combining experience and knowledge, but the personal touch a company of our size requires. Helping us make the most of a value asset – our people, so that we can focus on running our business.
We’ve been working with Natalie for around a year now, initially on an ad hoc level to help us get our paperwork in order – but now as our dedicated HR consultant to help manage this channel. Natalie is always available by phone or email and comes into the office each month to work with the team and have that presence, so people feel comfortable approaching and speaking to her.
Natalie has also taken on our mental health awareness efforts and is mental health first aider trained. She’s been talking to the team and identifying amazing things we can do as a company. Natalie doesn’t feel like an extension to the company, but part of the team. She fits in perfectly and everyone loves her being around. A superb option for other companies looking to address their HR challenges.
At RedSprout, we asked for Natalie’s help when we began building a new team. We wanted to get some proper processes in place ready for future growth. Natalie took everything off our hands, from the creation of offer letters and contracts to reference templates and advice on terms. Natalie is an absolute pleasure to work with, nothing is too much trouble and she’s made things so much easier for us. She also worked really quickly and turned everything around for us in about a week. We feel very safe in her hands! I have recommended Natalie to many of our own clients at RedSprout and will continue to do so.
Whitcombe HR have been extremely helpful in working with us to set up the recent GDPR requirements. We wouldn’t have known where to start, so having a professional person to oversee the implementation of our legal requirements was invaluable. It has also been great to have someone deal with staff appraisals and general staff issues we have on a constant basis, which is something we have found very time-consuming in the past, having to deal with it ourselves without the proper knowledge of our legal position. A very worth while service at an affordable price.
Natalie has set out a recruitment package that was perfect for our requirements. She has saved us money by not having to use recruitment agencies, and freed up our time from having to advertise and sort through applicants, we were able to just concentrate on interviewing the shortlisted candidates. Natalie guided us on each step and provided us with all the documentation required from adverts to offer letters.
I had recently built up a great relationship with a client and they mentioned a need for some help with recruitment. I contacted Whitcombe HR to get involved, and their rapid response and reliability were very refreshing to experience.
We got in touch with Natalie as we had a situation that needed to be dealt with quickly, she worked around us efficiently and provided considerable support to the Directors in a complex grievance situation which I am pleased to say was successfully managed.
Natalie has helped us take HR out of the dark ages and into a modern way of working.
