NMT HR Services Ltd
High Standards = Happy Customers

"Nicole provided a life line to me. I didn't know where to begin in effectively recruiting staff for my business start up or the process to follow. She came highly recommended to me and very quickly got a handle on what I needed. She adopted a logical approach and very quickly got to grips with Early Years Foundation Standards requirements. We were able to appoint a Nursery Manager well within the timeframe required, with minimum impact to other priorities. We were also able to put systems in place to allow me to get my business up and running. 

I valued Nicole's input and advice and would not hesitate to utilise her services again or recommend her to another business."

“We have worked with Nicole of NMT HR Services Ltd on a number of occasions. From first meeting with Nicole she has assisted ourselves with all HR requirements our business needed, this included employee contracts, introduction of company policies and assisting with any disciplinary matters we may have had.

With little experience of this, we have worked with Nicole who has always promptly and efficiently provided us with all the information we have required. Nicole is a very professional person whom is very experienced in her field. She has been a massive help to ourselves and we would not hesitate in recommending her.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Andrew Wood, Director, AG Compressed Air Ltd

“In my 30 years of working in operational roles in the food industry finding HR professionals who are commercially aware, hard-working, and able to deliver results is not as common as you would think - Nicole brings all these attributes and with a smile!”


Jim Watson, Group Operations Director – Hain Daniels

 
“Joining a new organisation is always a challenge and it was a huge help to have someone who was knowledgeable, experienced and reliable like Nicole at the other end of a telephone or an email. She produced all of the relevant HR policies & procedures, ‘model letters’ and other documents for a major re-structuring exercise and effectively kept control over multiple sites, some of which were staffed by relatively inexperienced colleagues. She was always the voice of calm in a crisis! Nicole is a professional, capable and warm individual who will give of her very best in whatever circumstances she finds herself. She is capable of doing many things. One thing that I do know is that Nicole will be sadly missed by this business.”

Stephen Cutts, Interim HR Business Partner – Premier Foods  
 
“Throughout the years I have worked with Nicole she has proved to be a highly skilled & reliable HR individual with a wealth of knowledge & experience. Nicole manages to get the balance just right between working for the employer yet with the employee. I could always rely on Nicole for sound advice. She handles with ease sensitive situations in a professional manner. Nicole was an asset & added great value to our business.”

Sally Perry, NPD Controller - Hain Daniels
 
“Nicole is a conscientious, highly capable colleague. Her methodical and pragmatic approach enables managers to achieve their strategic goals whilst keeping them in line with best practice and ensuring the business objectives are achieved. I found Nicole to be an incredibly supportive peer, who played an integral role in the HR Leadership Team and was always willing to listen and explore issues. She took ownership of projects and cases that were both in and out of her remit, with the determination to get the job done, and completed to a high standard. She dealt with complexities head on and wasn’t afraid to challenge. Nicole provided advice and coaching with tact and integrity to staff, managers and the whole HR team and was an extremely encouraging manager to her team. Nicole has an excellent reputation and is known for her eye for detail and strong work ethic.”

Claire Legge, Group Support & Reward Manager – Hain Daniels
 

“Nicole was a highly ethical person and a consummate professional. She was extremely supportive, honest and loyal. She dedicated above the required hours to ensure every job was completed meticulously.

Nicole was a great advocate to have in HR and had excellent rapport building skills.  She managed her team responsibly and was held in high regard from her direct reports, peers and colleagues. There is no doubt that Nicole helped to improve the image of the HR function and professionalise provision of service that the team offered. 

During her time with the business Nicole contributed to a number of HR and business projects including;

• Implementation of company policies and handbook
• Closure of manufacturing sites • Opening of a large manufacturing site
• Union recognition and de-recognition • Numerous business restructures
• Many more critical HR projects

She was a great addition to my team and would not hesitate to recommend Nicole to any business wanting a HR professional or a HR professional service.”

Nadine Maggi, Group HR Director - Hain Daniels

 
"Our company was successful in gaining the contract to cater for 500 employees 7 days a week over a 24 hour 3 shift pattern with frequent extended weekend working. Nicole was our client contact.

It is rare that you get the opportunity to work with a client so forward thinking, professional and willing to go that extra mile which helped us to achieve our mutual goals on site. Nicole laid the foundations enabling us to break down the contractor vs site employee relationships apparent in many other organisations. Nicole was a highly respected people person and it was no surprise that she went on to successfully manage HR for the group nationally.

Knowing that Nicole is now providing independent HR solutions we will be using her expertise. She has frequently demonstrated through her knowledge and creative thinking that her services will be a valued asset as we continue to expand." 

Andrew Hutchison, Director Hutchison Catering
 
“I had the pleasure of working with Nicole in Human Resources. Nicole is a true HR professional and shows great resolve and determination to all tasks that she is faced with. She is very versatile and resourceful always thinking of different solutions to problems encountered. Her commitment is unquestionable and she always worked with great integrity.” 

Helen Oliphant, PA – Greencore Prepared Meals  
 
“I could not have wished for a more supportive or professional line manager. No matter how busy she was Nicole was always available with advice and guidance, whilst still allowing me to make my own decisions. Nicole has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the HR Generalist arena that she shared with our HR team to the benefit of all and used her interpersonal skills to build the working relationships that are so important within all businesses.” 

Carol Judge, Interim HR Advisor – Hain Daniels  
 

"Having worked with Nicole, I have found her to be very professional with a high level of integrity and real attention to detail. She would be an asset to any business looking for specialist HR support, she is easy to talk to and quick to get to the heart of what is required. She has an astute business mind and is driven to achieve the best possible results for her clients, making the whole process very clear and customer-focused.
