Siobhan’s commercial and pragmatic approach is what enables her to provide effective, timely and practical HR solutions for business.
Siobhan is one of the most talented HR partners I had the pleasure of working with. Her soft skills when dealing with sensitive and complex activities were fundamental to the success of the task. Despite being based in UK she could perfectly deal with issues across Europe and related to different labour legalities.
It didn’t matter how complex the activity was or how much effort was required, she was always proactively helping with the rest of team. Her broad experience dealing with UK teams but also with International teams makes her an incredible and valuable professional.
Siobhan is an accomplished and exceptional HR professional on all levels. She can calmly and quickly resolve the most complex HR issue. She is commercially focused and can listen to and analyse the issue at hand before advising on the options available and implementing the agreed solution. She is an intelligent, thorough, diligent, interdependent leader and HR partner with a very professional approach. I would be very pleased to work with her again.
Excellent service from start to finish. Always happy to help with any inquiries and help when required. Would not hesitate to use again. Would highly recommend.
I worked with Siobhan for a number of years in EDS and Hewlett Packard and I always found Siobhan to be an outstanding HR professional. She was conscientious, hard-working, had the ability to deal with ambiguity and always focused on developing the right solution, balancing the needs of the company and employees. I have seen her in action with senior executives, dealing with labour relation issues and managing very complex HR cases. She also demonstrated good leadership skills in managing teams and projects. I would happily work with Siobhan again in the future.
