I joined Redkite in 2017 following an established career in Human Resources of around 17 years, providing HR advice and support within in-house HR roles. Most recently I worked as the UK HR Manager for a global oil and gas company, working at both an operational and strategic level. Before that, I worked within a Regional HR role for BUPA Care Services through which I supported Senior Management with all HR and people related matters whilst also being the HR contact at strategy meetings with the Local Authority and Adult Protection.
Through this experience, I have acquired a depth of knowledge from working within the industry, which has furnished me with first-hand experience of being at the forefront of high risk and often complex cases.
Since working in-house within HR, I have chosen to pursue a career in the legal sector and completed the Legal Practice Course. I am now a qualified Solicitor within the employment team and I advise on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters. This work includes drafting legal documents such as contracts of employment, director service agreements and settlement agreements; and providing advice on issues such as redundancy and restructuring plans, TUPE, disciplinary and grievance, unfair dismissal claims including discrimination and absence and performance management.
I am a member of the Employment Lawyer Association and I have CIPD Chartered membership and I am qualified to CIPD Advanced Level 7.
When I am not at work, my favourite past times include spending time with my family and being outdoors, particularly if there’s live music involved! I am local to the area and a fluent Welsh speaker.
Kelly has been great at helping me negotiate on my settlement. I called a few lawyers before I spoke to Kelly and she was the first one that made me feel like I was speaking to an actual human. She is very understanding, kind and intelligent. She made a very stressful process very pleasant
What our clients say
I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.
Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).
The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.
Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.
Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.
I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
