Team Testimonials

Helen has been absolutely amazing at guiding me through the process of writing eloquent and persuasive job applications and interview preparation after years of being with the same employer. She spent time “really” looking at what the employer wanted, and then helped me to craft my applications and interview answers based on this. She is a natural and finds this easy, even though many of us really struggle would this. It is especially so if you’ve been out of the labour market for some time, or if, like me, you’ve not moved jobs for a long time. If you’ve forgotten or don’t know how good you are, Helen is exactly who you need!

Morna worked on recruitment of personnel into several key postions in the business and was a real pleasure to work with. She organised the necessary psychometric testing and assessments to suit our internal process and provided job suitability reports prior to first interview. Her attention to detail and real understanding of our requirements made a potentially time consuming and difficult job very simple and straightforward. I’d recommend Morna  unreservedly for this type of work. Thanks again!

Helen was part of a team that we commissioned to help us develop our values, mission, vision and strategic objectives. Helen led the work on our values and assisted us explore with our staff and stakeholders what kind of organisation we wanted to be and what the values that hold us together should be. Helen took the plethora of ideas gathered from workshops and team and individual discussions and successfully pulled our ideas into themes. From this work we were able to settle on our current values and develop strategies to embed them culturally throughout the organisation. Helen was collaborative, patient and able to translate our loose ideas into the ‘words’ we needed and the behaviours that would follow. So complete was this work that our values now run through everything we do from the way we recruit to the way we coach and support our staff teams to the way we deliver services

Morna is a fantastic people person and is really approachable while remaining consummately a true professional. I found her to be extremely well organised, highly focused, brilliant at communication (keeping me 100% informed on the process) and generally just a really lovely person. I have no hesitation in recommending the “hands on” and “holistic” practitioner approach to recruitment which I experienced with Morna
