“Cerys undertook a large piece of work for our business including representing us at tribunal where every claim made against us was thrown out. Cerys’ knowledge and expertise in complex employment law issues is excellent, and the level of service she provided was second to none, never failing to go the extra mile and often working beyond what would be reasonably expected.
Critically it was not just what she did, but how she did it that really made her stand out in the HR market place. She understood the human element and emotional impact on the people involved, to the point where she became a trusted friend. Her empathy and reassurance and the extra time she took to explain the process and prepare us for what was to come at each stage made a vast difference. We would highly recommend Ashley HR to other organisations and firmly believe this business is likely to make a significant impact in the SME marketplace for HR and employment law related services.”
“We won the work to head up the HR team for a project that was the first joint venture of its kind in the UK. With the scale of the TUPE transfer and the multiplicity of stakeholder interests, it was clear that the legal challenges posed a significant risk to the commercial viability of the project, so we engaged Ashley HR to help guide us through it.
Aside from the extremely responsive and incredibly fast turnaround times on all advice and drafting, it is fair to say that the commercially focused, pragmatic approach taken by Ashely HR was instrumental in the project launching successfully.”
“Two years ago I took on my first member of staff, in all honesty not really knowing how difficult keeping on top of HR can be. In our time working together, Cerys has helped me so much with various staff issues and her help and advice has been invaluable and reassuring.
She really has made a difference to my business and helped me out with a variety of problems. She always replies to my queries ASAP, so anyone thinking about HR who like me thought “don’t worry, what’s the worst that can happen?” I assure you, engaging Cerys’ services will be up there with the best decisions you’ve made.”
“I write to recommend the work of Cerys Ashley who has recently assisted BulliesOut through a recruitment and selection process for two new members of staff.
Cerys assisted us through the whole process; providing advice in terms of our advertisement, the length of time to advertise, the shortlisting process and preparing interview question sheets. These enabled us to gain as much information as possible as well as containing a comment and scoring section. Due to the nature of the role in question, Cerys also advised us to invite each candidate to make a short presentation to the interview panel.
Cerys’ input throughout the interview process was invaluable. Her astute and professional nature enabled her to identify salient points that may otherwise have been missed and we have now successfully recruited and inducted our new staff members. Cerys is thorough, focused and professional at all times and I am certain that this process would not have gone as smoothly without her presence.
I would not hesitate to recommend Cerys and her skills and attributes to anyone looking to undertake recruitment, or indeed on any HR or employment matter.”
“Over recent years we have been expanding rapidly and keeping up to date with our HR obligations has been tough. After numerous attempts to bring our contracts and staff handbooks up to date we came to the conclusion that we needed expert help. We tried some of the larger companies but we could never get exactly what we wanted.
Thankfully we were introduced to Cerys Ashley of Ashley HR. Cerys immediately understood what we needed and within a short space of time was able to provide us with robust contracts for the team and a comprehensive handbook. We now have the confidence to continue our expansion knowing that our policies and procedures are in order and ready for the growth to come.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashley HR to any business that is looking to grow.”
“We have used several HR providers in the past and I can honestly say you are by far the best. Your knowledge of HR and employment law is exceptional.

As I tell all my business contacts, Ashley HR Consultancy is the only provider you’ll ever need for all your HR needs!”
