More about Sara
Walking my dog, reading, gardening, playing netball.
Camping anywhere. Not cold places.
Breakfast in bed, cryptic crossword, long walk, deli lunch, afternoon snooze, cake for dinner, early night. And on Sunday? Repeat.
No – anything from Prince to Bach…and pretty much anything in between!
Dog – Albus Dumbledog and two cats – Luna and Tonks
My first boss after having children – she took a chance on me, had complete faith and gave me so much confidence, in myself and other people. She showed me that business does not have to be a masculine, aggressive place and people will constantly surprise you with their loyalty and their kindness. Treat ‘em right so their star shines bright. The grammar in that phrase annoys the hell out of me. And that tells you all you need to know about my exacting standards for spelling and punctuation!
What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
Brilliant service, friendly staff, lovely team
Amazing service and support from extremely knowledgeable people, who also take great care in the standard of their work. Can't fault them, thank you so much!
5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
