Rachel is a pragmatic and highly experienced senior HR professional who I have had the pleasure to work with recently. Rachel supported a multinational client of mine with a piece of contract work. They needed a senior HR consultant to help support them with an IT restructure. Rachel’s skill set was perfectly matched and the client was very happy with the work that she did for them. I would have no hesitations in recommending Rachel and I hope to get the chance to work with her again soon. Rachel has bags of energy and is such a positive person to be around!

I referred Rachel to a client to carry out a very difficult and high level dismissal appeal process. My client was delighted with Rachel’s assistance and the end result.

I recently referred an important client to Rachel as she is very experienced, professional and has a commercial, strategic approach. I completely trust her as a ‘safe pair of hands’ and she is great to work with. I would happily recommend Rachel and look forward to continuing to work with her.

Associate at Irwin Mitchell LLP

Rachel has been a very valued asset in helping the Foleshill Gas Club employ a new steward and stewardess, advising us on the legalities of employment, contracts and salaries. She not only gave up her evenings to come to speak to us, she also was on hand day and night to advise us on any problems we had or anything we were not sure of. Not only did Rachel advise us, she drafted suitable contracts we were able to present to our new employees confident in the knowledge everything has been done correctly. Also her rate of pay was very reasonable as she put in a great deal of work on our behalf for which we are extremely grateful. We would highly recommend Rachel to conduct all aspects of HR work.

Rachel Wade of Opt HR, has made a great contribution in the few months that she has been a member of BNI Inspire. She has been able to contribute in several way, including introducing visitors to the chapter, and making referrals to fellow members in the group to help their businesses expand too – and through all these contributions she has now been elevated to the ‘Green Club’ at BNI Birmingham. This has been a fantastic achievement for her in a relatively short period.
