About Jane

Jane has seven years' experience working as an HR consultant, including a role as a business advisor for a large Aberdeen-based specialist HR consultancy.

Jane works with businesses of all sizes and various sectors, including those operating in the charity sector, with HR matters but particularly SMEs / owner managed businesses which require weekly on-site HR support. Jane also provides ad hoc HR support in complex matters often faced by small businesses today, such as disciplinary and grievances hearings, redundancy exercises, absence review meetings and performance management matters.

Having originally started her career in private practice as an employment law solicitor, she has also represented clients in tribunals throughout Scotland in that capacity.

"Jane and her team are excellent. They have reduced the risk that we face when dealing with HR matters and improved our policies and procedures. This in turn has improved our levels of employee engagement and freed up a significant amount of my time to focus on other parts of the business."

Stuart Grant, General Manager, Chemtech Consultancy Ltd

"As a busy small enterprise we so value and appreciate the help and support from Jane and her team and would highly recommend this service to any business."

Joanna Dunbar, MD, UK Health Enterprises Ltd

"Jane and her team at Prism HR have assisted us recently with HR Consultancy matters. It was helpful to have a fresh pair of eyes to assist and be seen to be impartial for staff. Jane offers pragmatic, client focussed advice and support and this is welcomed. As a charity we appreciate the experience Jane brings in terms of working within charities at a senior level as well as an awareness of the challenges charities face. I’d be very happy to recommend Prism HR to any business that needs HR Consultancy support."
