Nine years ago and starting a new company, I knew I needed someone I could trust to help with the payroll and human resources side of the business – all I wanted was to run a coffee shop.  Caroline came recommended by Business Link and from our first meeting she has been nothing short of amazing.  She has always been aware of our specific needs as a catering company and has made herself available to assist and help at short notice and provided a service that I believe has been very cost effective.”
Stephen and Lyn, Utopia Coffee Lounge

We engaged the services of CME Personnel Consultancy a number of years ago to handle all aspects of our company payroll, although our Managing Director has known Caroline for some 20 years.   Caroline and her team are always helpful, take the time to explain everything in plain English and always meet deadlines.  They are willing to go the extra mile and nothing is too much trouble for them.    They are always contactable and we would not hesitate to recommend Caroline and her team, it was the best move we could have made engaging the company’s services.”
