About the Team

GCVS have been providing operational support to voluntary sector employers for over 20 years. Formerly known as the Employers Advice Service, we have renamed to reflect the widening scope of our service.

All members of the team are HR professionals and members of CIPD and we regularly update our knowledge with new training and research into any changes to employment law and best practice.

Our service manager, Natasha, is an Employment Law Paralegal and can provide reliable employment law advice which is indemnified. In the event that the services of an employment law solicitor is required, we have strong working relationships with solicitors who provide preferential rates to subscribers of the HR service.

Natasha also brings years of experience in providing health and safety advice to third sector organisations, having completed qualifications and courses with The Institute of Occupational Health & Safety and the UK Asbestos Training Association. She is also a certified fire warden.

Our service is supported by Amalgamate Safety Risk Management who designed our Health & Safety Management System.

Each service also has the benefit of a dedicated advisor as well as part time administration support.
