I have worked alongside Sarah for over 5 years and have greatly valued her commercial, no nonsense and pragmatic advice. We work in partnership and the advice she and her team offer reflects their understanding of our business, Company culture and attitude to risk. Service levels are of the highest order – we are a 24/7 operation and are never left wanting. We have over 2000 employees across 20 odd sites and Clarion provides advice at all levels from collective to individual issues. They are happy to act as a sounding board to sense check an approach or provide in depth fully researched guidance. We are most grateful for advice offered on particularly complex matters associated with TUPE. Clarion also provides training to the HR team which has supported our ability to manage difficult situations with confidence. This support has helped create a well managed, stable and proactive Employee Relations environment, with few surprises. I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah and look forward to working with her in the years to come.Ted Johnson, HR Director, Clipper Logistics PLC
Sarah has a great sense of humour and has learnt to adapt to her client needs and adapt her style accordingly, which to me is key when building a long term working relationship. I would highly recommend Sarah.Lisa Wright, HR Director, Magnet Limited
