Tina Radford

Managing Director

I am apparently ‘refreshingly honest’, which is probably a nice way of saying that I can be very direct at times. But I believe that this is what the client is paying me for. So far, my style has proven very effective in helping to make a positive difference to organisations.


As your HR Advisor, I believe it is my job to introduce you to the  very best HR and people practices that I see when working in different organisations. From my 25 years of experience working with hundreds of companies, I have found that all organisations experience similar people issues, challenges and growing pains. However, every organisation has a unique culture and leadership style which changes how HR matters are approached.


At Radford HR, our consultants believe that it is our job to bring a fresh perspective to your people challenges or objectives and provide you with proven and tested strategies that work and will make a difference to your business.
