Orchestrating your Success

with Symphony HR

who we are 

Symphony HR was founded by Liz Jackson in 2014 to compliment her then recruitment company, Fairways. With more than 30 years  experience in HR she has built a strong portfolio of clients.

Success has been founded on the ability to tailor services to meet our customers’ requirements. Our business model is very much focussed on the personal human touch that is so often missing from the larger impersonal HR consultancy firms.

what we do

We provide a broad range of services across the HR spectrum and also have carefully selected partners to assist us with the delivery of mental health and wellbeing, and occupational health. Quite simply, we support you, your people and your business from recruitment to termination and everything in between.

Apart from the passion that oozes throughout our business operation, we have 5 core guiding principles that makes Symphony HR the business it is today. The name ‘Symphony’ symbolises the togetherness in which we work with you to help Orchestrate Your Success.

“As a recently appointed CEO for Cyber and Fraud Centre Scotland, I was delighted that we already had a longstanding working relationship with Liz. She has been a fantastic support to me personally but also to the team in general.  I could not have achieved all that I have achieved without her guidance and counsel over the last few months. Every CEO needs a bit of Liz in their lives!!”

“We have been dealing with Liz for over 11 years and are extremely satisfied with the first class professional service we have received and continue to receive.

As well as being extremely knowledgeable Liz is very approachable and makes you feel at ease. Every call or query is treated as a priority and dealt with accordingly.”

“Liz is an excellent HR advisor with first rate commercial acumen.

Her broad range of experiences, in lots of different areas, means that she is always able to offer insightful and practical advice on a given area.

She is adept at distilling complex, factual HR issues into straightforward client-centric solutions. I have no hesitation in recommending Liz to my clients.”

“Liz is a quite unique resource, in providing outstanding strategic capacity, whilst also maintaining a very sharp and practical eye on all of the latest legislation. I have benefited from Liz’s advice within a well established company, but also within the set up of a new company which required all core documentation and legislation to be of the highest level. I have also routinely sought Liz’s advice on a whole range of matters and found her to be highly knowledgeable, refreshingly succinct and also helpfully challenging at all of the right times. I cannot recommend Liz highly enough.”

“Diatech UK engaged with Symphony during 2019 and the service we have had in dealing with our HR challenges along the way since then has been professional and unparalleled.  Liz Jackson has consulted with us on many occasions giving clear, definite and positive guidelines for us follow leaving Diatech’s reputation as an ‘employer of choice’ in no doubt.”
