"Cat provided Seabrook Crisps with a fully outsourced HR service ranging from input at a strategic level to the many daily administrative tasks. Her HR expertise combined with business experience meant that we were confident the advice and service we received achieved the delicate balance between protecting the workforce and protecting the business. I would have no hesitation in recommending her."

Ellan Vannin Care Home Ltd, Isle of Man

"I would highly recommend the professional services of Cat Macdonald from TrueHR Isle of Man Ltd. Cat is an extremely competent HR practitioner who has contributed greatly to the recent growth and success of the Ellan Vannin Home."

David Proctor Dickinson

Franchisee Liverpool and Warrington

"We used Cat Macdonald initially to make sure we were legally compliant from an HR perspective as we were very conscious of some of the complexities and, therefore, potential risks to the business of getting it wrong. Since that exercise we have used her on a regular basis to provide support with the many challenges people in our industry provide. Her pragmatic, no nonsense style ensures we get issues sorted with minimal disruption, to the business. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other small business owners."

Mark Hammond

Director Naughtone

"Cat Macdonald has provided invaluable support to naughtone as a rapidly growing business. The opportunity to stay informed, compliant and proactive gives great peace of mind and ultimately creates a safe and enjoyable environment for all of our team. Cat understands our business and ensures their advice is relevant to our approach and company ethos. TrueHR have introduced key tools that have enabled us to better manage all aspects of our general HR approach ultimately saving us time and therefore money."

Helen Curtis

Director, Coterie Global

"Cat and True HR team have provided HR support to Coterie for over 2 years. We are delighted with the service we receive which has covered a range of areas: recruitment, performance management, coaching, skills assessment, policies, pay and strategy. We love Cat’s straight forward approach which is super-efficient for a small but rapidly growing business of ours. She has helped us effectively deal with some difficult management situations and at the same time is a very approachable support to the whole of the Coterie team (including associates) which is based across the UK. She is always very responsive and a massively valuable virtual part of the Coterie team."

"I really love having you helping us. It makes life so much easier and makes me feel safe! Thank you."

Ian Edwards

Managing Director, IETG

"Thank you for a job well done at IETG / 40Seven. It was a pleasure to work with Cat during what could have been very difficult circumstances if she had not been so professional and diligent. I know that I speak on behalf of the Leadership team at IETG in our gratitude for the work Cat did. It has left the permanent HR Manager recruited in a good place to build the team back up which is moving along well."

Julie Wilson

Salon Owner

"After working for major manufacturers for the majority of my career I have always had the luxury of an in house HR department. Three years ago I acquired my new business with a team of 9, I needed to know that I was fulfilling my legal obligations to my team and for myself. The team at TrueHR have continually been there to help me both in the mundane but necessary task of contracts and “Back to work” interviews but also been a massive support in helping me with some legal situations that without their expert knowledge would have been a massive headache and taken me away from my own day to day responsibilities. It is such a great weight off my mind to know that I have the back up of such a professional and friendly company who I know is always there to help me when I need them. Thank you so much."

Ex-Employment Partner
