Always excellent service. Helen is very skilled and knows her stuff. She gives advice and guidance promptly and is always professional.
Jane Kingston, Advocacy Manager at Connected Voice
“Dormor Machine are a family run engineering business with limited resources for managing HR. Helen McDougall has been a great support to us over the years – we receive prompt responses, and her HR knowledge and experience is extensive. It is reassuring for us to know that we can call on Helen for assistance, whether it’s a small query or a wider organisational change. “
Helen Cameron-Clarke, Managing Director
“Helen has provided solid HR advice and guidance to me over the past 20 years. Sometimes I have just needed ad hoc HR advice and at other times Helen has responded to the challenge to help the organisation with bespoke HR advice or training. Helen is extremely knowledgeable but she also just comes with common sense and an understanding to guide employers through challenging circumstances. “
