So who is The Fiddes Group?
And what makes us unusual?
Nyree Fiddes founded The Fiddes Group in 2014 after many years working in HR and Management.
Nyree saw a gap in the market for small-to-medium size businesses that needed HR services, but didn't need a permanent HR team on the payroll to achieve this goal. With this idea in mind Nyree took a deep breath, hung her shingle (which these days means creating a website) and got to work.
Nyree has high level expertise in reducing staff turnover, developing workforce strategies, and performance management. She is committed to helping her clients create a flourishing workplace where people achieve job satisfaction in a fun and supportive environment. Nyree is passionate about flexible work, the benefits of part time work for small-to-medium size businesses and the knowledge that HR will make your business better.
What sets Nyree apart as a consultant? She tells it as it is. Nyree does not gloss over problems - no matter how difficult they may be to address. She gets to the point and tells you what you need to do to resolve the issue at hand. Nyree knows that it's hard for organisations to hear about, or to understand the root cause of, HR problems and she works collaboratively to rectify the issues hand in hand with you.
Outside of work Nyree is an avid reader - currently going through a history phase, cat and dog lover and in winter she seizes every opportunity to go to the snow (she wanted to be a ski instructor as a child), then spends the rest of the year planning her next winter holiday and brain washing her kids to love all things snow.

Linda is a freelance writer who lives with her husband and three kids. When not writing, Linda can be found doing the school run, chatting with friends about the trials and tribulations of each day (an excellent source of inspriation for her writing!). Linda drinks too much coffee and too much wine although not at the same time. She holds a very real desire to have a novel published one day, preferably not posthumously.
What sets Linda apart as a writer? Her sense of humour and keen observations.
