You need it! Would highly Recommend.

“Consensus HR has been priceless to us as a small business.”
“The support given by Matthew and Consensus HR has been priceless to us as a small business in developing our entire HR and staff management processes. Thank you Matthew for all of your assistance so far and into the future months and years!”
Kelvin. – Operations Manager – DMJS Premier Branding Ltd

“I hired Matthew when I won the contract in Medical and Healthcare Regulatory Agency and i have had transferred the cleaner under TUPE to us who wasn’t providing the services as contracted with client. Matt helped us through the ACAS and because the performance from cleaner didn’t change we had to dismiss her, this caused us to be responded in Employment Tribunal where I successfully won. Matt is expert in ACAS and i wouldn’t hesitate to use him again”
Peter Plencner – Managing Director – Quality Never Goes Out Of Style

“I had met Matthew many times whilst networking and he was always very pleasant and helpful. When I needed my employment contracts rewriting he was the obvious choice to do this for me. I was so glad I made this decision as less than a year later, I unfortunately needed to use the “Restrictive Covenant”. This enabled me to seek a solicitor and win the case I was faced with. If it wasn’t for Matthew and his broad knowledge, it would not have been such a successful outcome.”
Caroline Howell – Arch Gardening – Owner

 “Consensus HR helped put in place and develop HR procedures for us to deal with our growing business and the increase in the number of staff we have been taking on. They gave practical advice and were invaluable. We will continue to use them in the future as we have an ongoing relationship with Consensus HR.”
Clare Holt-Parella – CEO – Celtic Harmony

“Running a small business HR issues can be really tough, having a HR professional on hand like consensus HR is like having your own HR team but for a very reasonable pay as you go price. I would not hesitate them.”
Paul Vincent – Managing Director

“We have used Matthew’s services from Consensus HR on several occasions throughout 2016, from contractual details in employee contracts, to staff handbooks, to online disputes. He is professional, prompt to reply and very thorough. Would highly recommend his services. Dawn-Louise “
Dawn-Louise Kerr – Managing Director – SM2 Communicated

“I would definitely recommend Matt (Consensus HR) to any business looking for help with Human Resources or anything to do with employment or employees. His experience, knowledge and hands on approach is invaluable.”
Steve H – Owner – Pegasus Driving School

Emma Austin – Managing Director – Enterprise Tax Ltd

“Due to our rapidly expanding team we were facing many new challenges in the process of recruitment and compliance with various laws. We approached Matthew Pinto-Chilcott of Consensus HR for his advice and were delighted with a very friendly, professional and rapid response. Not only Matt’s advice helped clear up many issues but also provided greater insight into the recruitment, engagement and employment process. I’ll highly recommend Matt and his professional services to anyone who is looking to employ team members. It has saved us many hours of work and has been beneficial in developing a smooth and strong relationship among the team members.”
Nosheen Lone – Managing Director – TekOne Technologies Limited. Business IT Specialists

“When we first dipped our toes in the murky waters of employing our first member of staff we made the mistake of doing some fairly informal interviews and just agreeing terms – how naïve we were! Fortunately, Matt came to our rescue and explained the advantages for both us and the applicant of conducting planned and structured interviews. Matt has continued to guide us on from there through employment regulations, the dreaded health and safety laws and requirements, agreements with contractors and fair benefits for employees. This means that now we and our employees can relax in the knowledge that everything has been correctly organised and we are not going to be taken to court for an error we didn’t even know we’d made! Matt oversees and advises us on any new changes in legislation and allows us to get on with what we do best while he takes care of HR. Thank you Matt for keeping us legal, saving us time and money and for looking after us and our staff!”
Jan H

“Matthew was my main point of contact at Veolia Water where I designed and ran many programmes to meet their needs over the 5 years I was at Campus Veolia. Matthew was always an inspiration to work with- giving a full and clear definition of the business needs, arranging the appropriate SME’s for me to meet with to design and sign off the training materials. He also ensured the training venue was set up correctly( often coming to check the detail personally) and we developed a good working relationship. He was also a great help with the Riyadh project which I was seconded to manage when he left Veolia. I would not hesitate in recommending him as a highly motivated professional detail conscious HR Manager with the personal touch so often missing in our profession.”
Neil Porter BA Chartered FCIPD FInstLM – Senior Management Development Specialist

“Since Matthew at Consensus HR started working with us he has played an integral roll dealing with current HR issues we had which he was able to swiftly resolve by working with us and advising the correct and proper procedures to follow and at the same time giving us the confidence to do so.
From then on has played and still continues to play a valuable roll within our business with everything from standardising our contracts, our employment and disciplinary procedures for which we are grateful for and most of all has released so much more of our time being able to get on with moving our business forward and taking away allot of the stress that can be involved with the tricky HR matters.
Matthew / Consensus HR is always available or at the end of the phone for any questions or issues that may arise and all responses we feel have been fast, accurate and forthcoming and will always follow up to make sure all is is order from gathering correct paperwork for contracts / new employees and any other issues that may be ongoing
Matthew is very knowledgeable in the field of HR with an excellent understating of all the ‘jargon’ and legal side of it all and ultimately leaving us feeling that we are in safe hands on the HR side of our business.
Will certainly recommend.”
Darrell – MD – D MJS Premier Branding Ltd

“I recommend Mathews for his skills with both internal customers and his external contacts, Mathew shows great skills especially in his training and development of people, with great patience when extra support is needed, I had the pleasure of working with Mathew on numerous hotel related projects in his time at Welcome Break and found him to be a great team player and also a strong leader within his skill set.”
Darren Woodhouse – Digital Media Manager at Welcome Break
