What our Employment Rights Act (ERA) clients say about our services

“I would utterly recommend Clumber Consultancy’s ERA team for their professionalism and ability to remove the immediate pressure from my own staff, in an area that can be neatly boxed off independently. We appreciated their ‘virtual’ team on site, answering really technical questions during meetings, avoiding the need to refer back for further information for the employees. This meant that our client had their own ERA resource which they valued and appreciated being able to count on. It was so much better to have a dedicated team working to deal with issues once, rather than being chased for answers.

“In a time where we were stressed and busy enough, it was a big burden off our shoulders.”

What our Cyber Security clients say about our services

“As Head of Digital Forensics & Incident Response for 3B Data Security, I engaged the services of Jo Austin from Clumber Consultancy recently to carry out a Cyber Essentials PLUS audit. In my opinion, carrying out a cyber security audit at an organisation that specialises in such consultancy is a challenging engagement but I had worked with Jo previously, on a mutual beneficial project at a previous position, so I was already aware of her background and experience and the methodical way she carried out such engagements.

“These engagements demonstrated her experience as a cyber security consultant and auditor and I found her to be not just knowledgeable and professional throughout but also that she has a common sense approach and was prepared to work with us to ensure that we had every appropriate opportunity to reach the end goal; she is approachable and polite and always willing to share her extensive knowledge and expertise . She offered us a high level of support throughout and ensured that our staff were kept up to date during the engagement; her straight talking approach left us in no doubt what needed to be achieved to reach the required standard.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo Austin for any such consultancy or audit requirement.”
