Jo has provided PYHT as the employer will valuable assistance regarding day to day HR matters and also ably helped the Trustees and Staff through TUPE and redundancy processes. Jo has a calm, objective, orderly and knowledgeable approach to all matters presented to her. Jo attended a Trustees meeting and a Group Consultation meeting and also arranged for a representative to take notes at individual consultation meetings. The staff concerned were very appreciative of having an individual record of the meeting. She gave sound advice and direction to the Board and enabled PYHT to understand the legal and procedural aspects of TUPE and Redundancy and to understand possible risks that might arise and how the employer could mitigate against the risks. Jo gave advice and guidance on conducting all the consultation meetings and liaised with the incoming employer regarding TUPE. Her support and help to me personally and her drafting of templates, forms and letters during the TUPE and redundancy processes was invaluable. Jo’s advice and guidance meant I was able to respond to queries and high emotions in an objective and ordered way which kept the emotional climate under control at a very difficult time for the organisation. Jo always responds to queries and points of clarification in a timely fashion and has been available for consultation at short notice. Jo’s knowledge and approach enabled PYHT to respond to situations and mitigate against the risks of possible complaints/grievances arising out of TUPE and Redundancy.
TESTIMONIAL JO CAIRNS – HR SERVICES TAYLOR BRACEWELL
I would like to thank Jo who recently took time out of her schedule to talk to me about HR services that Taylor Bracewell provide.
I have been with an HR company for 4 years now and I have only used their services minimally and have found them to be unhelpful at times. I also pay a lot of money on a monthly basis and for the amount I pay, I do not think I getÂ value for money for their services.
Jo was able to tell me what HR plan I would be on which would be ideal for my needs and money. I will be relocating my services to Jo soon. I am extremely grateful to Jo for her quick and professional response to my need of her advice and I highly recommend her services.
I have dealt with Bhayani Bracewell for a number of years now and have always received an excellent service. In particular my contact over the last year has been solely with Jo Cairns who has provided me with a friendly, prompt and exceptional service in a number of areas including restructuring and redundancies, absence management, disciplinary and policy/procedure and contract matters including TUPE. Her knowledge is vast and she has been a great support in some quite stressful situations our organisation has had to deal with in recent times. She takes the time to explain things when don’t understand and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo and the firm she works for to others.

“We recently appointed Jo Cairns to deal with a very complex and sensitive HR situation. Jo offered a fixed rate fee which worked well for us being small organisation. Jo provided us with a very clear and concise brief of what was needed and her approached to the situation was very calm, measured and systematic.
Jo went above and beyond on many occasions and tailored her approached to our needs even if that meant having phone call at 10o clock at night.
I can’t thank Jo enough for all her help, support and advice and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her “
