We are a small, friendly team and together we offer our clients a personalised, efficient and professional outsourced payroll and human resources service. We take a very personable approach and meet every prospective client, to ensure we understand their particular requirements, as well as giving them an opportunity to see who they are working with.
So, let’s introduce you to our team:
Julie: Director – Payroll and P11D
Julie’s career in payroll started in 1986, when she worked in an office learning her trade from the ground up. Through hard work, formal training and the determination to succeed, she launched JLP Payroll Services in 2003. Her professional, methodical approach and attention to detail have provided a strong platform for a wide range of clients, from owner-managers to companies with over 500 employees. She relishes the challenges of complying with rapidly evolving legislation and her focus is making sure that she facilitates the efficient processing of information for her clients and HMRC alike.
The expansion into HR, P11D preparation and Bookkeeping has been a natural progression, as her business has grown, and she continues to value the relationships she has built with her existing client base. When she’s not running her company, Julie likes to give back, getting involved in organising charity events. She loves spending time with her family, travelling, going to the theatre, walking her dog and socialising with friends.
Maddie: HR Specialist
Maddie’s experience in HR started when she spent 12 years as a Trade Union Representative, dealing with challenging HR issues and grievances. She joined JLP in 2005 attracting clients that were experiencing HR problems, helping them through the complexities of employment tribunals quickly and painlessly. She is a member of the CIPD and undergoes regular training to keep up to date with legislation related to employment law and Human Resource regulations. In addition, she has expanded her abilities to include the management of employee pensions, liaising with the Client, their employees and the Pension Regulator. She is instrumental in the preparation of initial declarations, re-enrolment deadlines, re-declarations as well as resolving any pension problems that may occur.
Maddie is the ultimate professional and takes her role very seriously, providing our clients with invaluable assistance when dealing with potentially costly disputes. Maddie also spends time taking care of herself, going to Keep Fit 3 times a week, regular visits to the cinema with her husband and relaxing with a good book.
