I can highly recommend Jo having worked with her for a number of years before she set up The HR Department. She is talented, pragmatic and knowledgeable and I’d recommend any SME business to consider engaging her to partner for your people.

William Hill

We had a lot to work through as a business with the introduction of GDPR legislation. On the employment side of things it was great to know this was all taken care of. Joanna made a complex subject area so straightforward. She explained what was needed and why and then pulled everything together for us in a really comprehensive format. I was really grateful for her pragmatic and trusted approach and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the HR Dept Bradford
