Who are Belvedere HR?

Jacqui is personable and commercially focussed. She is a chartered member of the CIPD and has over 24 years of experience in a variety of industries. These include Sainsbury’s, the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS trust and Exeter Airport. Her ethos is practical and ‘no-nonsense’. She uses a risk-based approach to HR and works hard to build effective relationships with her clients.

Her style is anything but ‘fluffy’. In fact her passion for clarity led to her naming her company Belvedere HR. The definition of a belvedere is: a building sited to command a clear view.

So if you would like the peace of mind of managing your staff within the law. Or don’t have the time for this please give us a call.
