This new 24 hour, 365-day mentoring resource is available exclusively to GIMA members, and aims to help guide them through the latest changes to employment legislation as well as both day-to-day and specialist areas of employment law. The Mentoring Service will also provide bespoke solutions.

In addition to accessing HR and legal information, the Mentoring Service will also enable GIMA members to have a free legal health check for their business, including a review of contracts, policies and procedures to ensure complete compliance.

A commercial legal line hosted by Kidwell Solicitors will also provide the opportunity for GIMA members to optimise un-capped consultation time. Additional free services also on offer include access to legal seminars and interactive workshops, a confidential HR forum and subscription to a newsletter which will deliver the latest employment law information direct to your inbox.

GIMA and Kidwells, in association with Maryanne Stokes Ltd, have worked together to develop a flexible pricing structure, reflective of the level of support that may be required. These prices range from pay-as-you-go, to a monthly retainer fee, annual retainer fee, start-up packages and a gold support package.

GIMA director Vicky Nuttall said: "We are incredibly pleased to add this mentoring service to our portfolio of member benefits. HR and Employment Law is an ever-changing minefield, so we’ve no doubt that the ongoing support of Kidwells will provide much needed advice and ultimately peace of mind for our members going forwards."

Rebecca Hardy at Kidwells Solicitors spoke on the issues at November's GIMA business meeting. She is available on 01432 278179 or by emailing  Further information can also be found on GIMA’s website or by calling 01959 564947.
