Have a chat with Sean Lovett, our Lead HR Advisor

As experts in 3D imaging and computer vision, we have relied on Critchleys for advice for over 5 years. We have found them to be reliable, consistent and always available to help. The personal attention provided by both Sean and Kirsty has been of particular benefit, we feel they are more a member of our team than merely service providers. I would not hesitate in recommending Sean, Kirsty or Critchleys to anyone seeking up to date, relevant and accurate advice on any HR or employment law issues.
