She is a solution-focused, resilient generalist, who quickly establishes relationships and can deliver tailored expertise, pragmatic advice and deliver agreed projects effectively.

What Others Say about Victoria
- "Victoria has been an absolute asset in helping us secure and grow our business. We have been running the business for eight years and came to a point where, before we expanded the business anymore, we wanted to ensure all the foundations were in place and that we were doing everything we should from a HR point of view. We do not have the knowledge needed but Victoria certainly does, she not only provides the information but is equally hands on and it now feels like she is an integral part of our company. Running a business can sometimes feel overwhelming so it's been a fantastic support having someone who has genuinely taken the time to get to know our business and apply her expertise to it. I can see why she was recommended to us and would equally recommend her to others." Ami Edmunds, Company director, A2B Taxicabs
