What our clients think

I’ve run a small business for many years and thought I was doing it properly myself – I wasn’t! I can’t recommend Gateway highly enough for the way that they have taken care of my HR, sorted it out professionally and left me to concentrate on what I do best
Alan Bellamy, Bellamy Eyecare - Monthly peace of mind subscription client
“James Gray initially engaged Gateway HR for some advice around the departure of a senior, long-serving staff member. The advice we got was clear and concise and the team were always on hand to support decisions that were being made around contractual obligations.

Following this initial engagement, we took advantage of the RDLC offer of the HR audit and starter pack to review all our existing forms and contracts. This is great value as it gave us a new suite of compliant documents that are all consistent and tailored to us. We have also committed to a longer-term arrangement with the Peace of Mind service offering which ensures Gateway are always on hand for any guidance. We have been very happy with the support to date and look forward to continuing the relationship.”
Richard Samuels, MD, James Gray Recruitment
We started working with Gateway HR earlier this year and never fail to be impressed by their friendly, efficient service and support. Their help over the last few months has been invaluable

One of the directors of our company, Rob Buxton, suggested that we may benefit from an HR audit from a BNI member, Gateway HR. At first we were sceptical about this. Firstly, nothing in life is free – ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch’ and all that. Secondly, we’re a firm of accountants, dealing with businesses, staffing matters and so on all the time – what could Gateway possibly do for us? Firstly we can confirm that the HR audit was totally free. We were visited by one of their consultants, Lindsay Gibson, who was with us for about an hour. During this time we ran through the procedures and systems that we have in place for dealing with our staff. Shortly after the meeting we received a health check from Lindsay that clearly showed the areas in which we were good, and the areas where improvements were needed. It became apparent from the report that we didn’t know as much as we thought we did.

Lindsay suggested that we should adopt a new staff manual. We agreed with this, and the first version arrived shortly afterwards. Various amendments were needed and Gateway were happy to assist us with making as many alterations as necessary. We have found Gateway to be thoroughly professional in all of our dealings with them, and would recommend their services to any business.
Mark Stockwell, BKS Accountants - client with a Starter Pack Plus
Our business is growing fast (we’ve doubled in staff in the last year) and that means dealing with a lot of employment hassles. We’re glad to have Gateway HR on our side. Not only do Emma and her team ensure we do everything correctly and legally, but they are always there when we find ourselves in a new situation. It gives us great peace of mind to know we can pick up the phone or send an email, and an expert is there to talk us through our options. Gateway HR is such a trusted adviser, that we now even recommend them to our clients. And there are very few companies we trust that much
