HR Consultant in Lancashire

Alison Driver is an HR Consultant in Lancashire.

Alison has over 30 years’ experience dealing with people management issues. As a Chartered FCIPD and MBA qualified HR Consultant in Lancashire Alison bases her advice on her extensive experience to provide sound, practical advice designed to put the employer back in control. At the age of 24 she was managing 105 unionised cleaning and catering staff. Alison attributes much of her success to cutting her teeth during the Government’s drive for Compulsory Competitive Tendering in the NHS in the 80’s. This enforced exercise resulted in one of Alison’s first tasks, having to make over 33% of the employees redundant in order to successfully win the tender in-house.

Since those days in the mid 1980’s Alison estimates that she has


Directly managed approximately 55 different management level staff


Been ultimately responsible for the work delivered by approximately 415 employees
