Sally Henley, Newton Abbot’s Town Development Manager said “It’s great to see a local businesswoman turn what was a dream into reality. Nicki is a prominent member of the local business community and her enthusiasm for business is infectious and I’m delighted that she is now so centrally located within the town.

When asked to summarise the work Westcountry HR undertake, Nicki commented “For the small business, there are a number of advantages to using a HR Consultant. Instead of hiring an internal HR Manager, you can save money by outsourcing it to a HR Consultant like Westcountry HR. Small businesses will often need HR support, but may not have a HR team. A HR Consultant can offer objective, unbiased employment advice and are best placed to advise on the people management that business owners and managers struggle to deal with.”
