Meet CME


The CME Personnel Consultancy Limited was founded by Caroline Elsey in 1987 after a seventeen year career in payroll and personnel roles at the Chase Manhattan Bank (now part of J P Morgan).

Having belonged to a large team which serviced a 1500 strong workforce, Caroline was keen to understand how smaller companies met their obligations.

Caroline was surprised to find that many smaller employers were not aware of their responsibilities towards their employees and often struggled to produce accurate payroll calculations and were also unaware of the legal requirement to provide each employee with written terms and conditions of employment.

Caroline decided to apply her skills to assist companies.

Caroline, as Managing Director, currently heads a team of 3:

Gemma is Payroll & Pensions Manager, CIPP trained & full member of CIPP, Reward300 listed, Gemma also helps Caroline run CME with the day to day duties of running the business.

Shelley who handles the Pension duties and Vanessa who keeps the office running smoothly.
