Alison Watson & Stephanie Garrard founded Watson Garrard HR Consultancy in May 2018.

Having worked in a variety of different organisations of varying sizes, within different sectors, we understand how important it is for the success of a business to get the right people working well within that business and the impact that people issues can have on the performance of an organisation.

It may be that you don’t currently have a dedicated person responsible for your key asset (your people) and want to buy in that expertise as, and when, you need it, leaving you free to concentrate on managing the rest of the business. Using your  existing legal advisor can be very expensive and sometimes not best suited to converting employment law into more practical solutions geared to your particular circumstances. Having worked as stand-alone HR Manager's within SME's we will have solved these sorts of problems many times before and can therefore offer you practical, workable solutions. Alternatively, perhaps you do have someone responsible for HR but they could do with some temporary assistance, either due to a peak in workload, for a project or for a more complicated issue that they haven’t dealt with before. Whatever the reason we can help you manage your people more effectively, contributing to the success of your business.

At the heart of our business are our core values that we believe helps us deliver the service that you value:


  • Honesty – if we can’t help you because of time constraints or specific expertise we will tell you. Alternatively we may be able to refer you to one of our contacts in the wider HR community that will be able to help you.

  • Reliability – our initial discussions will ensure that we really understand your needs and align on a practical way of meeting them, according to agreed practical time-frames and up front pricing structures that meet your business needs.            

  • Integrity – we deliver what we promise. We want to develop a strong relationship so that you trust us to help you, whenever you need us, confident in our ability to deliver the service you need.
