“I had the privilege of working with Austin Morley (Principal Consultant of Avantis HR in Newcastle) whilst a Director of Imass Ltd prior to its buy out by EADS (and merger with its subsidiary Infoterra) and also for 2 years following the take over. During this very difficult and sensitive transitional period for employees, Austin’s exceptional people skills and HR expertise ensured the employees received all the attention and information they required to complete the contractual changes successfully. I highly recommend Austin as an experienced HR professional.
Peter Bainbridge, Imass Ltd
“I have known Austin Morley (Principal Consultant Avantis HR in the North East) for about five years, during which time I have been extremely impressed by his professionalism and dedication. He has the ability to work under pressure to very exacting requirements. He built and maintained excellent working relationships with ease in a very challenging environment and is capable of providing guidance and completing work activities to very tight deadlines. Austin is able to quickly see the strategic approach whilst dealing with and maintaining the grass root detail and interaction. He has a wonderful sense of humour and is a very capable person. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any organisation.”
Barbara Tye, ex Astrium Ltd
“I have worked with Austin Morley (Principal Consultant Avantis HR) since 2003. As a Director of Imass Ltd and more recently at Symetri, I found his capacity to help resolve people related issues extremely valuable as our business developed and matured. His understanding and advice helped us through a number of changes including several acquisitions. The change workshops Austin designed and delivered were particularly useful in the process of merging two separate businesses to create Symetri and I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Avantis HR to you.”
