CONSISTENCY & CLEAR COMMUNICATION

“The ideal relationship with a client for me is one that is consistent and based on clear communication. It is my priority to make sure that the client is well informed and knows exactly what the next steps are in relation to any case I am dealing with. Communication is a key building relationship with client.”

SOLUTIONS & OPTIONS

“I think clients expect clear answers and solutions from me. I always make sure that I give my clients options so that they can make their own decision. I will assess the risk and give the client my informed opinion what would be the best route, but giving the freedom of making the decision is very important to my clients.”

BUILDING GOOD RELATIONSHIPS

“With regards to clients and colleagues alike, the most satisfying part of is building good relationships with them. When it comes to clients the other main point of satisfaction is seeing their satisfaction with our services. And with colleagues, I find it really fulfilling when I can support them or learn from them.”

ADAPTING TO CLIENTS’ NEEDS

“When it comes to my preference of methods of communicating with clients, I really don’t mind! I am happy with any type of interaction with clients, so I always make sure I adapt to clients’ needs and to the type of query I am dealing with. I like meeting clients in person and learning more about them, but any form of interaction gives me the chance to find out more about the client and how I can best support their needs.”

TRANSLATING COMPLEX LEGALESE

“The main challenge in my line of work can be sometimes the employment law changes and the actual interpretation of new legislations. That involves lots of research and many follow ups. It takes time and additional upskilling sessions if required but it also provides a lot of satisfaction when we’re able to explain complicated legislation and legal complexities to our clients in simple language.”

NEW OPPORTUNITIES

“I am really looking forward to exploring the opportunities that being part of the wider AAB Group brings, as well as being able to offer all the additional services to our existing clients that we are able to offer as part of the group.”

PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR CLIENTS

“We are a client-focused firm, and our priority is to deliver high-level professional service to satisfy our clients and support them with answering any queries they might have. We aim to help clients to achieve their goals, relieve them of stress, and basically just make sure they can sleep peacefully at night! We are genuinely passionate about this.”

A PROBLEM-SOLVER

“The greatest strengths I bring to Think People are simple – my extensive knowledge of employment law, and my excellent problem-solving skills.”
