Here are some examples of the issues I support clients with, but if you don't see your area of concern on this list then please just ask . I don't charge for a chat on the phone so please give me a call on 07740678218. I also offer a 30 minute consultation either in person or online for £20.

My background:

My professional background includes senior operational and training management roles in the recruitment sector.
