Don’t just take my word for it…

Eira is a professional who is focussed and organised at all times. She has a wealth of knowledge in her field and knows how to apply her knowledge in areas of problem solving, coaching and management. Her client, be it internal or external is the main focal point and her service delivery record is a shining proof of this. There are others who have Eira’s level of knowledge of Payroll and HR processes but there are very few who have the work ethic that she has. She strives on hard work and results, always! I hope to be lucky enough to work with Eira again.

Sherife Olsen - Documentation, Training and Process Specialist

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 has immense knowledge, technical ability and expertise in all matters payroll. She has the ability to make technical, complex scenarios and issues understandable to non-professionals. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Paul Lindley-Cox - Verifile Ltd

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

I have known Eira for a while now as a tutor, member of the Institute, speaker, conference delegate, and a great mover on the dance floor!

More seriously I am always impressed by the professionalism shown by Eira in whatever she is involved in, more recently as a member of the IPP Board of Directors. Eira is approachable and always willing when requested to assist, it is a pleasure to be able to work with her and alongside her.

Wendy Thompson, Higher Education Course Operations Mgr and Facilities Manager at The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP)

Eira is a highly professional colleague with whom I thoroughly enjoyed working. Her knowledge and understanding of the payroll market is unsurpassed. Eira is experienced in organisation design for optimal delivery of payroll services, and solution consulting, development and delivery to meet the specific needs of a wide range of businesses and sectors. Eira is equally at home in business development and operational management.
