"when I took up my third headship I was appalled at the state of the HR and payroll. Thank goodness for Judicium! The whole process was so smooth and easy, and the support since has been amazing, and seamless. I would have expected a few hiccups with a change of payroll provider, but there have been none so far, and we've been dealing with redundancies and governors as well as the everyday HR and Payroll issues. I cannot speak highly enough of the firm.” Mrs Kate Owbridge, Head teacher - Peter Hills with St Mary's & St Paul's CE Primary School
