Judy advised on our organisations strategies and provided gap analysis and we are now reaping the benefits of her work. Judy’s work has been invaluable to us. She helped us with our organisational design and workforce plan as well as mapping out our strategic plan. Judy achieved all the deliverables of the project at Finely Regional Care and more.

Judy is scrupulously committed to her word and takes a matter-of-fact approach to managing and solving problems. Judy is highly efficient and ethical in her dealings with management and employees alike. Judy not only made recommendations but actually actioned them.

Chris Pidd testimonial
It is with great pleasure that I endorse Judy Barker for her work in business development and human resource management. Judy was recommended to me by a mutual colleague and she quickly became my go to person for all things BD and HR. From contracts and position descriptions to organisational structure, Judy provided timely, no nonsense, clear and precise advice I needed for any given situation.
Further to this; Judy’s highly developed interpersonal skills enabled her to assist me personally as I returned to work after a significant illness. Her coaching and subsequent recommendation for psychological support were instrumental in my successful return to full employment.

Rob Williams testimonial
The North Albury Sports Club required a detailed review of our employment requirements and engaged Judy Barker as our HR Consultant. Judy analysed the current staff structure, provided detailed Position Descriptions & Employment Award requirements and restructured our staffing needs in a thorough and diligent manner.
The North Albury Sports Club again engaged Judy for an employee conflict resolution. Judy conducted a professional and confidential investigation resulting in a qualified resolution for all parties. I have no hesitation in recommending Judy for any Human Resource services.

Rob Williams,
Treasurer of North Albury Sports Club
