New face joins Alpha team

Our business protection scheme for Shropshire employers has proved so successful that we've taken on extra staff.

The Alpha project, which is based at our offices in Euston Way, is the first of its kind in the UK, and has beaten all targets in its first two years.
Now, with interest still increasing on a daily basis, the team has taken on a new adviser – Claire Williams.

Alpha is a comprehensive 24-hour business support package with particular emphasis on employment and Human Resources support, and the scheme also provides insurance protection against claims.

Claire said: “I have worked previously for two Human Resources and Employment Law consultancy services with over 2500 clients.
My clients have been from all kinds of sectors including football clubs, large retail organisations, care homes and security firms.

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge of being part of the Alpha team, and to building on my legal qualifications to develop my skills still further.”

Claire will be closely involved in the Alpha project’s advice to employers service, which offers face-to-face legal advice and assistance with HR policies and practices.

Companies who sign up to the all-in-one Alpha package also receive legal expenses insurance against fees, costs and tribunal awards; legal representation at any employment tribunal; legal updates; training workshops; and direct access to the entire Martin-Kaye Commercial Department, not just the employment team.

Alpha includes discounted legal services for each member business and their employees too – no matter which department they need help from – including conveyancing, wills, divorce, and other personal issues.
