As a HR Consultant you will be attending client sites to 'hold and conduct' our client's employee meetings as an impartial third party, with the possibility of having to give evidence at a subsequent tribunal hearing.

At the conclusion of the Hearing, the HR Consultant will undertake any necessary investigations, and provide appropriate written outcomes.
