Don’t just take my word for it…

Eira was my first manager at Cyborg on Support and gave me the opportunity to start my career in Support. She knew loads of stuff and was always ready to help.

Simon Lock - Payroll Software Engineer at SumTotal Systems UK

Eira is a highly energised and professional individual, she is a strategic leader and has delivered some great service transformational change. Eira is excellent at building and sustaining relationships and has a natural focus towards people and getting the best out of them.

Mike Hopkinson - Head of PMO and Operational Performance & Governance at Mouchel

I had the pleasure of working with Eira on a number of high-profile, interesting and difficult projects at Cyborg/Hewitt Associates.

My experience is that Eira can be relied upon to be highly motivated, organised and focussed to produce the best results for each customer. Eira not only has a great understanding of the high-level customer drivers and deliverables, but can be relied upon to clearly explain issues to others based on her in-depth expert knowledge of HR/Payroll processes and the customer’s detailed circumstances.

Whilst focused, Eira is always able to offer time and support to others in the team and frequently has an insightful (and amusing) comment to alleviate many stressful situations!

Andre Zelenka - Head of IT Services & Programme Management, Customer & Supplier management, Strategic Change, Multiple P&L

Eira is a Board member of the CIPP and has the portfolio responsibility for Policy & Research. In this capacity Eira is the mentor for me as Associate Director of Policy. I have known Eira for more than five years, and over that time I have found Eira to be very supportive of me whether in my role as a CIPP tutor or latterly as my mentor. Eira is an excellent listener and a solver of problems.

She has expert skills in payroll and in people management. Eira is one of the nicest people anyone could meet, but she also has an assertiveness that encourages a “working together” attitude from her team. Eira has written many articles for the CIPP magazine demonstrating her wealth of knowledge in the more obscure payroll areas. I have no hesitation in recommending Eira and I value her supportive and leadership skills

Karen Thomson FCIPP MSc - Director, Group Payroll Services at Armstrong Watson

Eira is one of the most focussed people I have worked with.  She is tenacious and determined. Working with her as a Non-Executive Director has been a pleasure. Her passion for her role and profession is obvious in all aspects of her work. Her contribution to the institute goes beyond that of NED as she is also a tutor supporting the IPP’s diploma and degree programs and regularly writes well-informed articles for payroll and HR magazines

Gillian Dale-Skey - Consultant at The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP)

Eira has been on the Board of Directors at the CIPP since November 2008 and has been a valuable asset to the Institute. She has worked hard through her career to promote the payroll profession, and this is continuing through the work that she is doing on the CIPP’s Board. I am delighted to be working with her and am sure that she will provide valuable skills and knowledge to assist in the CIPP’s overall goal of achieving Chartered status
