  • Improving the effectiveness of recruiting procedures

“I have regularly used Linda’s experience and expertise in developing and implementing HR strategy and change in large and complex organisations and have always been more than satisfied with the results achieved.  Over the past 10 years she has helped me deliver challenging structural change in a number of organisations.  For example:

  • Harmonised conditions, new pay and grading and performance management systems at Turning Point
  • Complex TUPE transfers and restructures in setting up new Academies at Cambridge Education
  • Suite of short, succinct and simple to use policies and ‘how-to’ guides at both Turning Point and Cambridge EducationKaren Delgado 

She has excellent project management and interpersonal skills and is a patient and persuasive negotiator with both management and unions.  She has a proven track record across the Private, Not for Profit and Public Sectors.  I am always happy to use her to deliver successful change of any type and am currently doing so reviewing systems to a new Trust spun out of local government.”

“I have worked with Linda on two occasions as I had every confidence in seeking repeat business. Linda entered the organisations at critical moments made rapid assessment to identify key issues and set about addressing them in a quiet and determined way, inspiring confidence  through adopting a pragmatic, lean, can do approach which delivered the results I and the organisation needed.”

Linda gave us excellent support as we established an academy in Norfolk. This involved a restructuring of senior and middle management. Linda’s clarity of thinking and effective communication skills were used extremely well to accomplish this. Staff involved respected her and valued her support.
