Claire qualified as a solicitor in 2005 having completed her LLB at Swansea University and Diploma in Legal Practice at Cardiff University.
Nine years working as an employment law solicitor gave Claire a perfect grounding to join Effective HRM in 2016 as an HR Business Partner. She now uses this experience to advise clients on all aspects of employee relations including grievances, disciplinaries, absence and redundancy. She also carries out HR investigations and drafts paperwork such as employment contracts, settlement agreements and formal notices of termination.
Claire is a trusted advisor to many of our SME clients and her strong dispute resolution skills are particularly appreciated by those faced with issues or difficult employees. She really does love her work and is a big believer in people power and open communication but is at her happiest when spending time with family and friends.
