“Centric HR were engaged to provide professional programme management for workforce transformation at the George Eliot NHS Trust. The Centric team clearly relished the transformational challenge this project presented, their energy, creativity and focus on delivery provided a much needed injection of pace. They provided advice and support to our clinical leadership right across the organisation giving them the confidence to embrace change and get things done. The programme was successful and exceeded target delivery in both time and savings.”

“I would just like to pass on my thoughts regarding Helen, Amy and the team at Centric. They have been professional, informative and helpful at all times during the whole process of the restructure of my employer, but above all they have also been kind, caring and understanding to everybody’s different circumstances. They dealt with all my queries without any trouble and if ever there was a question they couldn’t answer they would get back to me as soon as they possibly could. I would like to personally thank them for all their help and would like to wish them all the best for the future. They are truly a credit to their profession.”

“Centric HR worked with the TASC team over a number of months. Centric worked professionally and put in place a number of policies and a staff handbook, at a particularly challenging time for the charity. They also provided excellent professional advice to myself as we worked through a sensitive issue for a member of staff – very wise counsel at that time was much appreciated.”

“I have deferred to Sandra’ expertise many times over the years so it makes sense to work closely with Centric HR.  It was a great decision to secure Sandra’s services on retainer at the start of 2017 – since then Sandra’s advice from a technical point of view has been outstanding. She’s also very easy to work with and viewed as a key member of the decision making team. Thoroughly recommended.”
