Jane Fryatt – Abingdon

Jane loves building a really close relationship with her clients, and making a tangible difference in a relatively short space of time, particularly when it comes to resolving issues and helping managers have those difficult conversations with staff. She’s a big advocate of flexible working and the four-day week.

She’s an outdoors person, who spends time running, biking, messing about on the river and standing on the side of a rugby pitch! Also outside work she plays the French horn, and volunteers reading with kids at her local primary school.

Jane is a big inspiration to us as she grew her business in the early days taking her (then) new-born youngest daughter around everywhere with her!

FREE HRCheckup

Not sure if your policies and procedures are up to date? Our HRCheckup service is for small and medium-sized businesses and is free to those without in-house HR support.

We’ll review all your current HR policies and procedures, provide a full written report and then discuss where your current documentation should be modified and suggest additional policies to ensure you are meeting your legal obligations at the very least, but also help you understand and address any HR vulnerabilities.

FACEforward is a comprehensive HR audit for small and medium-sized businesses, aligning HR strategies with broader business objectives. We thoroughly assess current HR procedures to enhance business goals and engage with your workforce to understand organisational culture and employee sentiment.

Our first employee package is for new employers to ensure they have all the basics in place for the new staff member.

Our redundancy package is for small business owners needing to make fewer than 20 redundancies.

FACEit HR support service

FACEit is our annual retained service, providing peace of mind and unlimited access to expert advice and support from a named consultant who will be with you from day one and throughout the length of your agreement. FACEit is provided on a per employee, per month fee structure, which makes it very affordable to even very small employers.

Ad hoc and projects

If FACEit isn’t what you need immediately but you have an urgent HR concern, we can deliver advice via our ad hoc service. Even if you’re not sure you have an issue or are worried something could develop into a problem, we can advise on any number of concerns that come with being an employer. You’ll have access to a named consultant and advice is charged at the consultant’s standard hourly rate.

We also offer a full consultancy service on a range of employment matters from undertaking a TUPE transfer to implementing an employee benefits package. This service can also be provided on an ad hoc basis but for more specific, time-dependant activities, a project-based quote will be prepared by a named consultant.

Check our ad hoc and projects page for more information on all things people management related:

First class service from a first-class person. Efficient, professional, confident, knowledgeable and thoughtful. We've used Jane for policy reviews, 360-degree reporting, pay reviews, benchmarking, and complex staffing issues. Highly recommended."

Bryan Michell, My Life My Choice

Jane has really helped with the recruitment and development of our team, she takes the time to understand our people and our business. Although we are a small company our HR resource is stronger and more effective than those of much larger organisations. She is a key part of our success and is great support for startup founders."

Jacob Hurst, Etcembly

We are so grateful to have met Jane and also to continue to work with her. HR was a constant concern for us due to being a small fast-growing company with no HR function. From the moment we were introduced to Jane, our concerns were alleviated. Jane has professionalised our approach to the team through the support of software solutions, advice on individual issues, advice for the team as a whole through Covid-19, production of both employment and consultant contracts, and excellent recommendations of other service providers for matters such as team building and salary benchmarking. Our HR is finally in safe hands."

Joanna Warburton, ISSUP
