I have worked with Ward HR Consulting for nearly 2 years taking HR advice and support across a variety of areas and situations. Sophie Ward is a very competent and experienced HR professional with a good overview of the field and she continuously stays up to date on changes and adjustments to rules and regulations impacting the HR domain. Sophie has a calm and approachable work style and is very quick to establish a sense of trust in her collaboration with myself and my management team. It has been valuable and enjoyable for my organisation to work with Sophie so that we can provide the best HR service to our associates and our business. I can certainly recommend working with Ward HR Consulting!
Head of EMEA
Steve has been a fantastic asset to Infomedia over the last couple of years. His attention to detail and calm under pressure is excellent. He has fitted in extremely well into our management team and his insights not only on the HR aspects of our business but on other areas also have been great. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Professor Gordon Wishart
Chief Medical Officer
Steve has been our current HR consultant at Check4Cancer since 2014. During that time he has helped us grow from a start up company with a small number of staff to over 60 full or part time employees. Steve has considerable practical HR experience, and has fitted easily into our company. His calm and reassuring nature puts interviewees at ease, and he manages the HR function as if he is one of our own employees. If you are looking for a HR consultant with extensive experience and a fresh and innovative approach to HR, I cannot recommend Steve more highly. He has certainly made a significant contribution to Check4Cancer.
Equity Partner and Head of Employment
Steve’s approach to HR, risk management consultancy is fresh and adds significant value and insight to an executive management team. He is technically very competent and his mix of pragmatic diplomacy, creativity and genuine commitment to high standards of business ethics and professional conduct is both reassuring and inspiring. Everyone talks about the importance of employee engagement and Steve inspires and challenges business managers and leaders to always do the right thing and safeguard their most valuable assets. Steve’s knowledge and ability to integrate quickly into a business as a trusted consultant and coach was impressive and his judgement and insight promoted collaboration and innovation.
Founder & Director
I’ve worked with Sophie for a little while now and have had only positive experiences so far. We initially engaged with Sophie last year when she helped us with our growth strategy, improved internal procedures, offered us support and has most recently helped us create a new staff handbook. Sophie has embraced our company culture and helped us to progress in the right direction with every piece of work that she has done for us. Sophie really has been a pleasure to work with and made my life easier as a small business owner. Highly recommended.

We started working with Sophie in January 2020, initially for some specific HR projects covering employee relations and some anticipated organisation change. This progressed to a large scale redundancy process, which Sophie lead from start to finish. Sophie ran a smooth and efficient process, whilst also providing us with support and guidance throughout. Sophie is meticulously efficient and organised whilst also showing kindness and compassion to all our employees during a difficult time. The scope of the project changed multiple times over the months, and Sophie was able to adapt and flex with all changes, quickly providing solutions. Sophie has strong knowledge in her field, and I would strongly recommend her services to any prospective businesses.
