Helen McDougall HR Consultancy became a virtual tenant at Tanfield Lea Business Centre around 5 years ago.
The business has been operating for over 6 years and Helen and her team of fully qualified Associates support small businesses from various sectors across the North East with their HR and people management issues. The team have particular expertise in manufacturing, engineering, independent charities, health and social care, transport, IT, print, social housing, digital and research agencies. Helen’s background also includes specialist areas such as job evaluation, pay and grading design and planning, leading major restructures and handling TUPE transfers.
“Having a virtual office is a fantastic solution for my business. It is very affordable and keeps overheads low for the business, which in turn allows me keep prices to clients at a competitive and fair level. We predominantly work on client sites but it is very useful to have discounted access to Business Durham’s meeting and training rooms which offers great flexibility. My Associates and I use these on a regular basis to meet clients for confidential meetings.”
