It’s the people-focused nature of employment law that makes me so passionate about my job. On a daily basis, I work collaboratively as an extension to your team, helping you to achieve your objectives by supporting you to solve problems and difficult staffing issues.
I work with employers across a number of sectors but my main focus is on education. In particular, I support independent schools, academies and maintained schools, and sector organisations like the Independent Schools’ Bursars Association, the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools and the Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools.
I’ve been commended for my pragmatic advice and I work hard to combine that professionalism with a personable approach. I’m very easy to deal with, though I won’t sit on the fence, advising you on a particular course of action based on my experience and your requirements.
I care about helping individuals, businesses and, in particular, schools to achieve their aims, objectives and potential. As part of this, I regularly speak at education sector events and provide training to clients on difficult employment issues.
Outside work, I love to spend time with my family and to keep fit by attempting to play football and tennis.
If there is a problem, act early and tackle it head on.
Keep a paper trail (but be prepared to justify what you say).
Don’t rush to conclusions – the situation may have more to it than you think at first.
